Day 12: Looks like we are in for more snow

Day 12: Looks like we are in for more snow

Good morning Challengers. As I write this Monday night, the news is warning of big things happening today. We'll see if it happens or not. The boy and I took another long walk yesterday, and it seemed to me he has gotten a bit better about walking-now that could be the motivation of the destination, or he's getting older, or he had a sugary drink from Tim Hortons and was high on sugar, but really? Does it matter? I was just happy for cheerful company. 

As I was walking, I was thinking about winter sports, probably because I was playing hockey Sunday night and was thinking about the women I play hockey with. What I thought was, this is Canada, and if you live here you are going to be living part of (and sometimes much of) your life in a cold snowy climate. Then I thought how outdoor sports during the winter are a sort of social currency. And how skating even if you don't play hockey is a way for kids (and grown ups) to be together doing something. 

Tomorrow I'll tell you about friend Jill-Marie who is my special skating friend. 

Until tomorrow have an outdoorsy day.

Photo prompt-I think it's time for some dog pictures-what do you think?

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.
