Grateful 43 – Outdoor Activities

Day 24 – Outside Activities

FUN can be had outdoors even for us naturally sedentary endomorphs.  And I have some ideas that make my gratitude list. Without further ado, I am grateful for these three outdoor activities.

ONE. Gardening. Whenever I’ve lived places where I could garden, I did. I ENJOY figuring out what will go where. The beauty & variety of plants is soothing & points me to a Creator God. The fresh air & Vitamin D from the sun are good for my health. And since it is usually a solitary action, I get lots of needed alone time.

TWO. Walking Tours. I don’t crave the sun and being outdoors. But I do enjoy going on walking tours. I am grateful for them because I get to walk and see/learn new things. Since I do these tours with family, friends and peeps from church, I am also enjoying social time with everyone. Some of my fave local walking tours are Nimbus Hatchery, Old Town Sacramento, Davis Arboretum, and Locke – CA’s last Chinese town. I want to explore other ideas listed at this post.

THREE. Camping. The #1 reason I like to camp is because my family likes to camp. It is a great way to get away from the demands of regular life so we can just concentrate on each other. Although, I do like walking, star-gazing, cooking foods over a campfire like hot dogs and marshmallows and snuggling with grand babies when they are tired.

Your Turn . . . What outdoor activities make your gratitude list? Why?

I am writing a gratitude series titled Grateful 43. I will do this for 43 days. And I will write three things for which I am grateful 4 each topic. Do you see the play on the words 43 and FOR THREE?  Go here for the 43 Days of Gratitude JOURNAL Prompts
