I love this time of year (spring)! because there are tons of things to be involved in. I love getting out and doing "stuff" because it always makes me feel better, it makes me feel vital and involved.
Perhaps not everyone is wired this way, but I am. I have a lot of energy and need to keep busy, so involvement in "stuff" is good.
It is hard to take that first step and show up for something... but once you do it, you will be hooked!
There are so many things available in my small community to be involved in, and yet don't ask for any long term commitment. This morning was a perfect example. A town clean up was scheduled. All you had to do was show up. Bags, gloves and a clean up route were provided. Clean up time was about 2-1/2 hours, then you got lunch in the park. Come on! What is not to like? We had some laughs and I always treasure these moments, to be remembered forever.

Along with this involvement comes the perks of getting out and catching a beautiful sight like this:
Of course, I got a little dirty and sweaty along the way, but I am more comfortable like that!
Now who wants to come check me for ticks?
I am a Putnamaniac that loves to be involved in all that I can!
