Go Outside!

It’s that time of year again that I wait for all winter long—being outside! As soon as the weather warms up, I move almost all of my everyday activities outdoors: dining, reading, and yoga. And before I moved to Chatham Village, I even sometimes played my flute outside! As I walk around my co-op every evening, I’m always amazed that I seem to be the only one enjoying the quiet, the beauty, the cool night air while everyone else seems to be inside.

The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh has lots of great ideas for outdoor living, whether you enjoy gardening, camping, or bird watching. And don’t forget about the library’s great stash of beach reads for your next vacation, home or away.

The need to be outside is important for everyone’s health and well-being.

Ever since I’ve been a little girl, when my mother ordered my brother and I to “go outside!” I’ve been doing just that, and I’ve been hard-pressed to come back inside. That is, until the mosquitoes start biting.
