Last weekend, the temperatures finally climbed into the seventies. After a long winter cooped up inside with the cats and my computer, I was ready to get out and celebrate spring. My husband's idea of soaking up the sunshine was to roll out the riding mower and start it up to see if it was ready for a long spring and summer of mowing grass--a "welcome" sign to a writer who loves quiet when she is writing!
My thoughts, however, immediately went to enjoying the warm sunshine and temperatures at an outlet mall in our vicinity. The strip-type mall offers a main street with outlet stores lining both sides along brick and concrete walkways.
We compromised and we headed for the outlets in late morning and planned to window shop and, of course, visit my favorite stores. We were both in a shoe-buying mood, so most of our stops were at footwear outlet stores. We did pass a Civil War store which intrigued me because I had just written a Civil War side story in my December 2019 Daisy's Tea Garden mystery, MURDER WITH CHERRY TARTS.
After lunch we headed home so hubby could roll out the mower and do his spring-things with it.
So we were both able to enjoy the beautiful arrival of spring in our own ways and also enjoy time together.
How do you like to spend a warm spring day full of sunshine and warm temperatures?
