Day 11: Where I take my own advice

Day 11:  Where I take my own advice

Because I seem to have a disability when it comes to time (Rob is laughing really hard right now) I found myself at yoga class 40 minutes early, not 10 minutes early like I had planned. And, because I was only going to yoga and straight home, I didn't bring my wallet or my ipod. 

So what do you do, 10 minutes walk from home, no money for a coffee at the coffee shop, no ipod to listen to music, podcasts or read ebooks. 

You decide to go for a half hour walk like you've been encouraging people to do all month. And you know what. It was so worth it. I took lots of pictures of snowy streets, I stopped at a friends (Lisa, did your man tell you I stopped by?) and generally enjoyed the super beautiful snowy day we had here yesterday in Toronto.

I actually thought about going home to get my ipod, and not walking. Then I thought of all the Challengers, and how hypocritical it would be to do that. So I thought back to day 6 where I suggest waiting time be outdoors time, and I set out....see, power of does work.

As for yesterday's photo challenge to take a beautiful snowy picture, you shouldn't have had to hard a time with that! Here are a couple I got ( on my walking instead of waiting adventure)

Today's photo challenge: A snowman. Like this one. Although this one is sort of an extreme snowman, with their Tim Horton's cup and button eyes, but we do it right in my 'hood'.

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.

 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.
