Only two items from the original poll applied to me: drinking beer and hitting the beach.
Besides drinking beer and soaking up UVA and UVB, my main warm weather activities are:
Hockey, roller and ice. I play on two ice teams year round, and play pick-up roller most Sunday mornings. Plus Power Skate lessons once a week in the Spring and Fall. So, I skate 3-4 times a week. Keeps me cold, and keeps me gliding. No Emily Dickinson for me, too busy for melancholy. (I'd personally change that poll reference to Etta James, Susan Tedeschi, Rory Block, Sue Foley or even Saffire. Da Blues Women, not some dead chick poet.)
Gardening and yard work. (Another non-urban activity.) Have a half acre yard, so it keeps me busy. Used to think gardening was for little old ladies. I now know better. And I have tremendous respect for little old ladies. When I plant, I'm planting 30+ flowers at time; my back feels it after that. Add some weeding, and call me Quasimodo. Throw in digging holes for planting trees and shrubs, removing stumps, cutting down trees, hauling top soil in a wheelbarrow, mowing the lawn, and ski season becomes rest season. The good news is that gardening and yard work are a socially acceptable means to drinking in your front yard. Any hour of the day.
Plus, I have to give a shout out to the National Pastime. Nat's games, O's games, and an annual trip to Chicago to see the Cubbies. With plenty of beer involved.
And hopefully, I'll be watching the Caps in Lord Stanley's Finals.
Taunting Roger Z. and Jimmy. Nuff said.
Should probably take up mountain biking, heard it is an excellent cross-training activity for skiing, but I never seem to find the time. Kudos to those of you who do.
