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: 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.
