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 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.
