Day 15: Half way now

Day 15: Half way now

Challengers!!!!! We are half way through our 30 day challenge! I have very mixed feelings though. On the one hand, I feel pretty proud of myself for having gone outdoors everyday for 15 days; but on the other hand, I don't feel like I did anything out of the ordinary. I haven't felt all that challenged (not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing). I will focus on the few times that I know for a fact, if it wasn't for this challenge and for you my fellow Challengers; I would not have gone outdoors, like, no way in h*ll would I have gone outdoors.

Yesterday I had my weekly walk with Cathy, and it was exhausting. We have been walking once or twice a week from Magwood to Etienne Brule for years. But today by the time we were almost done I admitted to Cathy that I was quite worn out, and Cathy said it was because it is snowy and slippery and that makes it much more yeah, I'll go with that.

The good news though, I got some great pictures. It was a truly beautiful morning and the picture taking was fine. I had to say an extra thank you to Cathy for her patience though as she waited while struggled through snowbanks for a perfect shot of the ducks. 

Our photo challenge for today- I think dog pictures are long overdue, so let's share our dog pics, bonus points if you get a pic of a weiner dog.

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.
