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.

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 27: outdoors as a sensory experience.
Day 27: outdoors as a sensory experience.

I am aware of what my body needs - active, upright, arms swinging motion. I notice there is a tone to my walk - purposeful, present, confident.  I notice the openness around me, the cleared sidewalks and roads, the clouds are softening, lightening up, revealing a soft blue sky.
