Day 29: I think a car prevents outdoors time

Day 29: I think a car prevents outdoors time

Good morning Challengers, second last day today. I think we all deserve a pat on the back for making it through another February without succumbing to cabin fever.

Yesterday I took a long walk down into the Junction, signed up for the Articulations sketch book challenge, said hi to Barbara at Snug As A Bug, stopped and refilled my favourite body butter at the Pretty Clean Shop, and then got Pho, at Pho Huong. Of course I stopped in to say hi to my photographer friend at Phillipa C Photography on my way and even popped in to Beau and Bauble. A pretty full afternoon.
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. 

Of course having a car has enabled me to do lots of different outdoorsy things like skiing every week, and skating all over the city, but there is something peaceful about having to stay in your own neighbourhood and make do. 
I think I've been missing that. 

So sending out some neighbourhood love today on this leap year February 29th.

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 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.

Day 27: The Last Throwback's a lot of pressure
Day 27: The Last Throwback's a lot of pressure

 Today is the last Thursday of the challenge and I wanted to post something good, (it was really hard not to post about the llamas). But the title of this post made me chose it. It's from 2017, the early days of February challenges, so it's short but sweet, but there's two reasons I chose it. 
1. The title.
2. I thought it was a good reflection of me, and how I am.
