Day 14: Happy Valentine's Day

Day 14: Happy Valentine's Day

Good morning Challengers. Yesterday was my dream weather day. Not too cold, tons of snow, didn't have to drive anywhere further than Bloor and Brock. And lastly several times I looked out my front window to near blizzard conditions. 

The chink in the perfect day armour was twice I had to push people out of the parking space in front of our house. One was at 8:00 am, (it was Rob) and later our letter carrier got the mail truck stuck. I tried and tried to push him out to no avail, when a neighbour drove by and saw us struggling and stopped to help. Yay to Neighbours. The cute part was, after a couple pushes the truck was free, the letter carrier drove off with a thank you and a wave, and I heard the Neighbour say under his breath, "that felt good." I wasn't sure if he meant the physicality, or the communitality of it. (and yes I made up that word). The good part of that is once your out you may as well shovel, take out the garbage, check on the neighbours....and look at that our done your challenge for the day.

Until tomorrow-have an outdoorsy day.


PS Today's photo challenge: Well it is valentine's day, so something red then.


You can't really see how hard it's snowing in this picture but it was awesome!

I would like to talk about something I witnessed in town over the last several weeks. As I mentioned previously, we had a Polar Vortex. It was too cold to walk to the grocery store, let alone just sit outside all day. Which is what a member of this town had been doing for months.

My Winter Walks
My Winter Walks

I am just back from a walk along the country road where I live, a road bordered by fields and stands of trees. My intention was to get some exercise, which meant covering some distance at a reasonable pace. My intention is important, as it affects many other choices: type of shoes, clothing, walking poles, water, binoculars, camera etc.

 After stopping for the dogs to poop and stopping to change Jett’s diaper (twice) we were off!! We walked through a sunny meadow, climbed up the frozen cascades and returned via a side trail that skirted the riverbank. Bliss.
