Day 13: Throw back Thursday

Day 13: Throw back Thursday

This post is from last February.

Good morning Challengers

In case you don't know I work Friday and Saturday nights at Buddha Pie Pizza shop. Last night a couple came in. She was visiting from Ireland, and he lived on Runnymeade. After I gave them their pizzas I asked about how they knew each other...I said it sounded a bit like a joke 'an Irish girl and a Torontonian walk into a pizza shop...' She said she had been here for two weeks and I said, "Oh you were here for the storm(s)." She said she was watching the news at home before she came and it was saying that Canada was being hit by a polar vortex. She said she thought that was a made up word like from Star Wars or something that the news was joking. Then she got here and no, we were, it was real.

Well there's one other thing about this story, that ties into my pledge to be more inspiring. Both of these people were blind. John at the pizza shop couldn't believe they braved the ice and snow to come and get a pizza. The couple laughed telling us this was nothing, they had both ended up in snow banks over the last couple of weeks.

So Challengers, if a blind woman from Ireland who's never heard of a polar vortex can come out on a cold, icy night...So can we.

Until tomorrow, have an outdoorsy day.

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.
