Day 23: sometimes things don't turn out how you think

Day 23: sometimes things don't turn out how you think

Good morning Challengers. I had a plan today to have a nice blog post about taking my mom up to my sister's in Norfolk county. Getting some good shots of some naturey stuff going on there, maybe taking a walk with my sis, or some friends I have there. Sadly, that is not how things turned out.

I was going to Simcoe, Ontario to drop my mom at my sister's but also to go to my niece Kiera's baby shower. Five minutes after we got there, my sister fainted and felt very sick, so I took her to my other sister's house (in Simcoe) and after she lay down and had a little sleep, she felt better, and I took her home.

All this is to say, I didn't really have much outdoors time yesterday, didn't get to go for a walk with one of my sister's or one of my friends, but I was glad to be there for my sister when she needed me, was glad to (briefly) see my niece (Barb, the panda moccasins were a hit @snugasabug) but outdoors on a gorgeous warm February day...not so much.

Your photo prompt today-a detour.

Until tomorrow, have an outdoorsy day.

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
