"Some people enjoy the sun. You have said you used to take your dd to the beach. You didn't notice many people there sunbathing and just enjoying the warmth of the sun?" ---------- I never paid much attention. Here most people sit under umbrellas when at the beach. I thought tanning had gone out of style, due to the dangers and the aging it brings.

Depending on where I am at I will sit under an umbrella the majority of the time at the beach too. Tanning has not gone out of style though and I doubt it ever will.

No and no.

2. Sunday plans?

Went to a pool party for awhile, relaxed in my own and then folded tons of laundry.

3. Sunscreen: None, 15/30, higher?

Yes,  30 spray on my body and 100 (lotion) on my face.

Because a lot of activites happen outdoors?  At least ime with my kids, we are always outside.  I do use an umbrella many times (and sunscreen) but I burn easily and it doesn't have to be direct sunshine for me to burn.

I spent about 2 hours on Thurs, 2.5 on Sat, and almost 2 on Sun out in the sun - purposely.  Poolside. Reading, relaxing, dipping in the pool occasionally.  Yes, it's hot. Yes, it's humid. Yes, I sweated my asssss off. But it is a very nice feeling.   (and all this was without kids, lol)

While I do like to have some color to my skin (and my shoulders are already getting nicely bronzed), my purpose isn't to get tan - my purpose is to soak up the sunshine - it's as much mental as it is physical.

I laughed at this....of course you like the movie, I thought of you as soon as I saw the trailer and the actors!

I have to admit, I'm on Team Rollmops on this one.  I don't deliberately SIT in the sun in temps exceeding 65 degrees.  I do go outside in the sun--it's inevitable when I have to mow or do other things.  But I have to be moving and doing things to tolerate it, and seriously, if I have the ability, I will move whatever activity that needs doing to the shade (either of the covered patio off the kitchen door or under the maple trees in the back yard) whenever possible.

The idea of deliberately sitting in the sun and sweating doesn't sound even remotely appealing.

That said, there's nothing I love more than pulling out my chaisse lounger to the backyard under the maples, bringing out a glass of ice water or tea and taking a nap in the breeze.  Even in 90 degree weather.  I was outside a lot this past weekend--I had the table saw and a workbench (from sawhorses and some lumber) for my jig saw so I could complete the sewing room.  It was all set up in the shade and towards the later half of the afternoon on Saturday, I moved the table saw and work bench twice to follow the shade.

That's about me, but I wasn't out during the prime sun hours of 10-2, I like the late afternoon or evening laying the pool...ahh, heaven.
