Day Eight: Fresh Air Can Tire You Out

Day Eight: Fresh Air Can Tire You Out

Good morning Challengers, can you believe it's already day eight?! At least we're finally getting some wintery weather. 

I'm writing this post late Friday night because I am playing in an outdoor hockey tournament this weekend, and I have to admit, I'm pretty tired from being outdoors for a couple hours today, but I really really enjoyed it. It was the perfect temperature to be active outdoors. 

The tournament is at Dufferin Grove Park, and if you've never been there, I highly encourage you to put it on your to do list of places to see. Along with a full kitchen serving up hot chocolate and other goodies, there's a wood stove, so it always smells so nice. There's something about woodstoves that make a space welcoming. 

One thing about a lot of parks that isn't listed in the brochures is if there's an outdoor rink there will be an accompanying pile of snow, and if your Little doesn't love skating, they'll keep themselves busy playing in the snow hill.

The first year we did the challenge we were at my mom's in Dundas, Ontario and there was a huge snow pile in the parking lot of the mall that Bobby played in for as long as I could stand there watching him. 

On our street lots of kids play at the end of driveways where people pile there snow, today's photo prompt is to find a nice pile of snow for yourself and your people to climb. 

Until tomorrow, have an outdoorsy day...and if you anywhere near Dufferin Grove, stop by and say hi.

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.
