Day 18: Happy Family Day

Day 18: Happy Family Day

Good morning Challengers. Happy Family Day. I have mixed feelings about Family Day because while it's nice to have a day that celebrates families, I feel everyday should be/ is family day. But if having a national (provincial?) holiday reminds people the preciousness of family, and I will phone my mom which is always good then I'll be a Family Day advocate.

I was looking through some of the posts from last year, well, just the titles actually, and I thought "Man, I'm not being very inspiring this year." And it has really bothered me. I'm feeling like I'm letting my peeps down. I'm not sure how to change it. To be honest there is another area of my life that I feel I am failing to inspire people, so now I'm giving a lot of thought to inspiration.

If you have any tips, or advice, please share. I admit I was a little bit inspired by an email I received today from a mom who loved a pair of Smittens she got for her little fella. She sent pictures, and a video clip of him skiing, and it was pretty inspiring...and adorable.

For a photo prompt...Let's see your inspiration.

Until tomorrow Have an outdoorsy day.

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

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.
