Healthy Tidbit ->Step Out for Sun

If you're planning to spend the day inside the house working on various things, take a few minutes to step outside on the porch or deck and sit a few minutes in the sun. It's a good way to get a dose of vitamin D which our bodies need. I'm not advocating staying out in the sun for a long period of time given the skin cancer risks and let's not forget the hot temps, but just long enough to soak up bits of sunshine. Drink a cool glass of ice water while you're out there and then head back inside. The fresh air will do you good and you just might see one of these beautiful butterflies on the flowers. Now that would be delightful!

  2. Wonderful Loretta! I like this butterfly and watching one long enough on a flower would really be something. Thanks always for your comment.
