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.

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'.
