#ThrowBackThursday it is…so rather than images of mega piles of #MASnow, let’s get our eyes engaged with color, texture and WOW! Where do we begin?
First, create your setting. Think outdoors but place your thoughts on a warmer time. Where do you spend your leisure moments come spring, summer and fall? How do you entertain beyond your indoor living space? Are you thinking about extending it to the great outdoors?
Open your eyes to the possibilities. Like the Sunflower ready to pop open, reach for those sunnier times.
But let's hold that summer thought for a moment. We can't wait until Sunflowers. Before you know it, spring training starts. One must be ready and prepared. There’s not much of an off-season, especially when you love this sport. So if you want to expand your outdoor living space, preparation for the upcoming season starts now.
It may take some oomph to handle the rest of winter but the best way to get ready for spring training is to let your outdoor planning begin now. Don’t find yourself in the dumps today. Think color, texture and WOW! Get ready to create a happening place where you can entertain and spend your outdoor leisure time.
And if you need a reminder of what’s outside, rather than give you snow images, this is my Thursday pick. It’s a cold weather sport that might suit your winter fancy plus it’s possibly world-breaking, record setting as the winter Olympics are ready to begin. Click here to begin the read. Aristotle reminds us, “In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.” And for some folks, it’s catching the world record Carp while ice fishing. Can you believe it? This was only the guy’s second time! There's hope for all you would-be outdoor garden and nature lovers. C'mon - Think a record-breaking early Spring!
