Day 10! One third of the way through

Day 10! One third of the way through

Good morning Challengers. I have two things to say again today. 

First: yesterday I was reading through the challenge posts, and I thought they haven't been very I'm going to work on changing that.

Second: In case you don't know I work Friday and Saturday nights at Buddha Pie Pizza shop. Last night a couple came in. She was visiting from Ireland, and he lived on Runnymeade. After I gave them their pizzas I asked about how they knew each other...I said it sounded a bit like a joke 'an Irish girl and a Torontonian walk into a pizza shop...' She said she had been here for two weeks and I said, "Oh you were here for the storm(s)." She said she was watching the news at home before she came and it was saying that Canada was being hit by a polar vortex. She said she thought that was a made up word like from Star Wars or something that the news was joking. Then she got here and no, we were, it was real.

Well there's one other thing about this story, that ties into my pledge to be more inspiring. Both of these people were blind. John at the pizza shop couldn't believe the braved the ice and snow to come and get a pizza. The couple laughed telling us this was nothing, they had both ended up in snow banks over the last couple week.

So Challengers, if a blind woman from Ireland who's never heard of a polar vortex can come out on a cold, icy night...So can we.

Until tomorrow, have an outdoorsy day.

Photo prompt for today (Yikes I got nothin') Free choice something inspiring outdoors.

I would like to talk about something I witnessed in town over the last several weeks. As I mentioned previously, we had a Polar Vortex. It was too cold to walk to the grocery store, let alone just sit outside all day. Which is what a member of this town had been doing for months.

My Winter Walks
My Winter Walks

I am just back from a walk along the country road where I live, a road bordered by fields and stands of trees. My intention was to get some exercise, which meant covering some distance at a reasonable pace. My intention is important, as it affects many other choices: type of shoes, clothing, walking poles, water, binoculars, camera etc.

Good For You Momma

 After stopping for the dogs to poop and stopping to change Jett’s diaper (twice) we were off!! We walked through a sunny meadow, climbed up the frozen cascades and returned via a side trail that skirted the riverbank. Bliss.
