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: CONGRATULATIONS!!!! We made it

I think that will be my take away from the challenge this year: That going outdoors isn't always enough, sometimes you need to really get to the park, or the lake, or the river, or the farm, or small town Ontario....or wherever you feel close to nature.

Day 29: I'm already thinking about my next 30 Day Challenge

Yesterday I signed up for the sketchbook challenge-it starts March 1st-so I'm already thinking about how I'll fit art into my day-it's a bit messier and more involved than typing a post on a laptop-but I guess that's why it's called a 'challenge'.
