Repot. Day 10?! Wait What?

Repot. Day 10?! Wait What?

This is one of those posts that stuck with me  the memory of that night at High Park. It never once occurred to me when I was writing these challenge posts that I was creating a storybook of my life.

Good morning Challengers, it is day 10 of our 30 day challenge! How have you done so far? I have not found being outdoors everyday much of a challenge yet because the weather has not really been discouraging. In fact yesterday was so nice that I went out twice even though I am battling a cold. 

I will admit to you Challengers, I was born in the 1960's and last night at High Park was one of the most beautiful evenings I have ever seen. One of my team mates said it looked like we were living in a snow globe, and it really did feel like that.

Playing shinny when it snows this much is not my favourite but we did have some good laughs as the puck stalled in the snow half way to it's destination, or was buried in the snow, and nobody knew where it was. I'm feeling so lucky to have an activity that has brought an awesome group of friends into my life, all of us sharing a love of the outdoors, and I'm also grateful that we live in this awesome city where there are outdoor rinks (more than any other city in the world by the way) in every neighbourhood.

Even if you aren't a skater, or don't own a pair of skates, I encourage you to get out at least once this season, there's only four more weeks before the rinks are done for the season, and lots of rinks rent skates. 

The photo challenge for today Challengers, brought to us by Robyn, take a picture of a loved one.

Until tomorrow, have an outdoorsy day.

My first challenge is going to be to dress warm. Maybe an obvious one, when you experience Canadian winters, but I notice I am always underdressed (I have an amazing spring jacket collection that I love showing off)But todays challenge is to wear your winter coat. Everyone put on your mittens, hats... even scarves.Then go outside.Robyn

Good Day Challengers.
Wow! Somehow February started without me really noticing and here we are at February 7 and for the first time in over 10 years, I don't have the challenge up and running. To be fair I was hit hard my the flu last week, but I'm here now and ready to be challenging :)
I've reached out to other outdoorsy people to share some of their winter insights, so I'm excited to see what outdoorsy shenanigans we can get up to this year.

Day 30: goodbye until next year
Day 30: goodbye until next year

Over the years this challenge has gotten me out the door more times than I can count-and I’ve always. Yes always, felt better for it because to quote my good outdoorsy friend Renee. Getting out the door is the hardest part. ( I may be paraphrasing
