Trying to find a hobby that I am able to do that allows me to relax, alleviate stress and enjoy my time is something that I’ve been working on since my diagnosis. I enjoy blogging of course, but my enticement with the outdoors has grown more each day.

When it is not too hot I try to set up some time to do some bird watching. I’ve wanted to start a small vegetable garden for a while now. My husband did this when he was young and is also wanting to give it a try. But with the heat, we need to find a solution. The garage doesn’t stay cool enough even with a fan. We’ve looked into garden sheds which we could wire with electricity. We could get a small air conditioning unit and I can get the plants started out there in pots. What a joy that would be!

We’ve seen different types of sheds. These are a big trend now as people are using them for storage and workshops. We know that aluminum ones would only attract the heat. Plastic ones would probably do the same. I’m not too sure about wooden sheds yet but will have to research them. They probably would not be a good choice in Florida because of termites. But I sure do like the look of them.

Maybe one day this dream will become a reality. For now, I’ll stick to watching the birds and keeping my indoor plants.
