Ten on Tuesday

Although most days it doesn't feel like it, Spring is here.  April can be a tough month for us with weather.  The water is still pretty cold and that doesn't help the Spring thaw.  But we make the best of it and look forward to the days ahead where we can spend lots of time outside.  What do I do? Here is a list of My 10 Favorite Things To Do Outside:

1.  Knitting.  And of course.......... 
2.  Spinning
3.  Sit by the stream and listen to the water 
4.  Listen to an audiobook or podcast
5.  Eat.  Any meal.  We eat  most of our dinners out on the deck
6.  Have my morning coffee (I don't have coffee as much in the winter as I do in the summer)
7.  Play games.  Either lawn games like bocci or a card game at the table
8.  Sit by the fire and roast marshmallows
9.  Watch the birds.  And the squirrels.  And the dog chasing both the squirrels and the birds (it was quite a show this morning watching the dog and the seagulls interact)
10.  Block my handknits.  The shawl above is one of my Weigh It shawls that never got a proper photo shoot.  It was windy and I couldn't get a good shot.  I let it hang out to dry and forgot.  Ooops.
11.  Play with the dog.  He's so easily entertained
12.  Take photos.  
13.  Watching the sunset
14.  Cross stitch.  And anything else that requires good light for these old eyes.  

So I couldn't settle on just 10.  Let's see what other's are saying over at Carole's.

That's one of the reasons I enjoy knitting outside -- the light is so much better. Morning coffee outdoors is the perfect way to start the day!

Terrific list. I always have my coffee outside on weekends but I think I'm going to start enjoying it outdoors on weekdays, too, now that I don't watch TV so much in the morning.

Great list - living in a part of the world that has seasons, being outside after being cooped up inside is just such a treat!

I'm surprised but not surprised? by how many people enjoy being by the water side. The fresh air, the sight and sound it's very soothing, I think. Good list! I love you posted more than 10.

Oh I love to have my coffee outside on the screened porch. Cannot . Wait!

I love that your posted extra too.

Outside: we had a campfire early yesterday evening to get rid of some stuff. It was sweet to be out again.
Rode my bike for the first time today.

I love to look at the stars at night outside

I love to do all the things on your list except I'm not crafty at all. I wish I'd had my mom teach me to sew, crochet, knit etc.

All good reasons to be outside! :-)

I wish I had a deck to eat outside for every meal! We have a patio but it gets so hot with all that concrete surrounding us.. great list!
