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 suggestions...it 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'.

Now I can't really blame my not getting any place on my kids anymore. Sure sometimes Bobby is reluctant, but I can always go without him. It's not like the olden days where I had to wrestle four kids, a stroller, a diaper bag, and 3 snowsuits, to go to the store! Now I just have to put my shells over my pjs and get goin'.

 I was considering taking a selfy holding up today's paper standing out side Shoppers Drug Mart, but that seemed perhaps overkill, and I figured everyone would trust me if I said I did go out.
