Day 24: And then it all balances out

Day 24: And then it all balances out

Challengers! We have almost made it through February. It is almost March. In fact, March is seven sleeps away. (It's a leap year, just in case you forgot). 
Yesterday when I got home from my Sunday morning walk with Cathy, I received an email that the High Park outdoor rink was closed, and so I made Rob come for a second walk with me because I thought I wasn't going to play hockey.

Then, they opened the rink, so after a non-outdoorsy day Saturday, I had triple outdoor time Sunday-balancing it all out in the end. 

The thought I had while walking along the beach with Rob was everyone should get themselves to a beach. It's really soothing, and restorative to walk along the water's edge, so if you can, while the challenge is still on, see if you can't get yourself to some water.

Today, we are back at Snow Valley, only a few ski dates left, meaning we're going to need to find some summer sports for ourselves, please share yours, we're open to all suggestions. Currently it's rollerblading, and biking, but there must be other. 

I love this picture and I knew as soon as I took it, it would be today's photo prompt: something smooth and rough.

Until tomorrow-have an outdoorsy day.

Day 30: And we wrap it up for another year
Day 30: And we wrap it up for another year

Even though February was longer than usual this year, it felt like it went by faster, maybe it was the warm weather, with yesterday being the coldest day we had all month. Maybe just the busyness of it, maybe my kids are bigger now, I'm not struggling being shut indoors with Littles. Whichever it was I hope the challenge helped you get through the month too. 

Until next year Challengers...have an outdoorsy day.

Day 29: I think a car prevents outdoors time
Day 29: I think a car prevents outdoors time

Perhaps the reason I made so many stops was because now I have a car, I don't make that walk as often. I think this time last year, I was walking down to the Junction 3 times a week.

Day 28: When life is a cartoon

As a favour to those who had to go out to work I said I would brush off the car, then I shovelled our walk, and the best part about it was, I didn`t have to get out of my pajamas. Reminding me of this cartoon my friend made for me.
