Sunny Days

November 10th, 2009

We’ve been having wonderful weather recently. It all started last Friday with a nice sunny day and temps climbing into the 50’s. I was at my mom & dad’s house and my sister came over with her clan. We had a blast making homemade pizza and ice cream and we spent the afternoon playing outside.
I enjoy sunny days, particularly this time of the year. I think that kids really know how to make the most of them. I generally spend them working and finishing up garden chores, they’re happy making the most of them by playing. Mr Chiot’s and I did spend some time on Saturday morning enjoying the weather by hiking, but I spent the afternoon working outside.

What’s your favorite sunny fall day activity?

    I love to get my camera and go out to capture the light.

      Me too, it’s always perfect this time of year. It seems like it’s not as harsh as it is in the summer.

    you’ve captured it there Susy – out on the bikes (well all gardening and no play makes Nic a dull girl :o). Fab photos.

    Our weekend was gorgeous too. I spent most of it outdoors and wondered where all the kids in the neighborhood were. It’s a tragedy to waste a beautiful day in the sun indoors!

    Sometimes the whole family lays on our concrete driveway, just soaking up the sun and warmth…I love doing that…

      That sounds wonderful! Sometimes when it’s too cold I sit in the sun in front of the door, the cats are usually there as well soaking it up!

    Sunday was so warm here in nw Ohio. I grabbed my camera and headed out for a day of photography, but you’re pursuits can’t compare to the sheer joy children exude when playing outdoors in the sunshine.
