I love working in the office. Tech and the skill of writing, designing, and marketing. Hey, sitting here writing this blog post to feed my family is just wonderful. Especially, when many other people are working in lonely cubicles or doing things they hate. I am very blessed.
Where am I going with this? While I love working indoors, nothing can beat the outdoors this time of the year. Dogwoods, azaleas, and flowers blooming. Green grass, awesome weather, and leaves on the trees. More daylight in the evenings. Spending time outside with the family.
My backyard is still far from ideal, but at least it’s a backyard. It would be fun to have a spacious deck, open patio, nice even lawn, and beautiful landscaping, but what’s far more important is my family and taking time to enjoy each day.
We can have such high ideals, we miss the possibilities right under our noses. For example, I really enjoy fire rings. Roasted hot dogs, smores (with chocolate and peanut butter!), and fire talks. But for a long time I did without a fire ring because I had things to do with my money besides spending it on fancy landscaping bricks. You know the kind that works really good for a fire ring.
