Friday Favorite: Sunny Days

September 20th, 2013

This time of the year, if the sun is out, I’m out (at least if I can be).  I know that soon enough the days will be short and the sun won’t be as high in the sky.  I’m trying to soak up as much sun as I can to get me through winter.  I’m almost ready to trade my tank tops for sweaters, just not quite.  Luckily the weather is cooperating and I’ve had some really wonderfully sunny days to dig potatoes this week!

I enjoy the sun in winter too, it’s just not as strong as it is in the summer.
The laundry will also miss the heat of the sun, even the clothes I’ve been hanging out recently haven’t been drying as quickly as they did even a few weeks ago.

Do you live in an area where you notice a big difference in the strength of the sun throughout the seasons?

Reading & Watching

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
