Day 16: Let the puddle jumping begin

Day 16: Let the puddle jumping begin

If you are in Toronto, and you went outdoors today, you probably saw at least one very happy toddler. And that toddler was probably very happy because they were splashing along in some of the huge puddles that were everywhere today. 
Even Bobby at 12 relished our walk to the chocolate shop, swishing through puddles, and schlepping through very soft snowbanks.

One not so quite fun part of all this puddling is when a car drives by and ... you know... yeah, no fun at all. Luckily that didn't happen to me, but only because Robyn alerted me to the impending soaking I was about to get, as a car drove through a puddle. Thanks Robyn.

Even though it was so warm today, I still didn't go out until 4:30 when Bobby and I were going to go play a couple board games at Coco's Chocolates. Sadly it was closed, but we did end up checking out a new organic bakery just a bit further south, and Bobby gives their chocolate croissants a thumbs up.

Not too inspiring other than it's warm, it's sunny, let's get outdoors.

Until tomorrow

Have an outdoorsy day.

Day 23: sometimes things don't turn out how you think

 I had a plan today to have a nice blog post about taking my mom up to my sister's in Norfolk county. Getting some good shots of some naturey stuff going on there, maybe taking a walk with my sis, or some friends I have there. Sadly, that is not how things turned out.

Then, they opened the rink, so after a non-outdoorsy day Saturday, I had triple outdoor time Sunday-balancing it all out in the end.

Day 22: Guest post by Robyn!
Day 22: Guest post by Robyn!

Yesterday reminded me that I don't ALWAYS have to be plugged in, and if I'm listening carefully, there's lots of things to hear. Still not sure if I prefer the sounds of birds and a creek to Bon Jovi, but it's OK to take a little break.
And while I would have loved the company of one of my brothers, or my boyfriend, sometimes doing things by yourself is very nice and relaxing.
