Well, my housework took a beating during my last two long weekends of beautiful weather. Like the saying goes, “make hay while the sun shines”, so I took advantage of the sunny days to do some much-needed yard work and enjoy extra-long walks. Early this morning I got dressed, tied up my walking shoes and was out the door mumbling to myself “you silly goose – the housework will still be there for when you get to it” and besides we are slated for some rainy days this week, so then the housework will happen. During the course of that brutal Winter, how often I hankered to escape for a long walk at Council Point Park. Bye-bye dust bunnies … hello fuzzy little fella. Housework versus communing with nature up close and personal … there is no contest.
