The weather here has been beautiful and it was about time! For about two weeks straight I was complaining non stop about the weather being horrible. I mean I live in California and it was raining for two weeks during the summer time! Well now this past weekend and especially today, the weather has been perfect. Today here in the small city of Rohnert Park, it is 93F and I love it. Been hanging out with the friends just day drinking and being outside in general. I love the scenery here too when it is hot everyone is just smiling even though its so hot. Everyone just seems to be happier in my opinion.
What I did today was wash my new car out in my driveway by hand. Most don't actually like doing this but it is one of my favorite things to do when its this hot outside. I get to fool around outside washing the car while cooling off with a ice cold beverage or with a splash of water. I like to play music too while I'm washing my car and by the sounds of my neighborhood I don't seem to be the only one doing this. Another thing I like doing is letting my dog off his leash and letting him run around our front yard freely. He knows enough not to run away but I like to take him off his leash because he likes to run around my lawn since he never gets to do that out in front of the house.
Later on today I'm walking my dog too which this dog doesn't seem to have been used to yet. My other dogs I've taken care of or had always picked up being taken out for walks quickly but this one hasn't yet. He is either too antsy to explore or is far to shy of other dogs and cowers behind me even if the other dogs are friendly. I'll take him around the neighborhood though so he gets used to it. It will help him kill off all of the energy he has since he is so damn needy all of the time. Just being outside with him though I feel better about many things that have been troubling me as of late.
Being in this state of mind helps me take off some of the stress that I come to have throughout the day too thinking about bills, job, and my sick grandfather in Mexico. Walking outside for anyone and getting some sunshine in your life is just the perfect way to get a bit more happier. I like to workout at the gym and I use that time to meditate but for those days like this when its just blazing hot, I like to take a walk outside and jog a bit to help me meditate, think, and reflect about how life is going.
The only thing I miss right now is my younger brother since I could be hanging out with him and playing ball or be playing with our dog. He is a bit of an in door kid and even though he has friends, they are all friends he spends time playing video games. If he isn't at home playing video games in the living room, hes off at a friends house doing the same thing. I can't really get mad at him since when I was younger, and even late into my teens, I was the same way. I like taking him out to see the local scenery and even though he complains and whines about it at first, at the end of the day when we make it back home, I can see he had a good time even if it was just us two getting ice cream and talking for that afternoon.
Why do you guys like the hot sunny weather during the summer? And if you don't like it why not? I want to hear some of your guys suggestions for what to do during the summer and what you guys do for fun wherever you are from. I like being outside and doing whatever to be honest which is going to be one of the things that I will truly hate once I get an actual office job or indoor job.
And with that I leave you with this sweet song:
Go outside and wash your cars and have fun if its sunny wherever you are ;)
