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?
