Day 18: I have to be honest with you

Hello Challenger. How is your Sunday so far. Sundays are my work at home in my pjs day, until it's time to go to hockey. At least that's the dream...doesn't always work out that way, but a girl can dream. 
Yesterday I had a rare day at home, as our regular early morning hockey practice was cancelled. Woohoo. As I enjoyed my day sitting on the couch reading a trashy novel, I wondered whether I would even go out.

Until tomorrow

Have an outdoorsy day

Day 27: outdoors as a sensory experience.
Day 27: outdoors as a sensory experience.

I am aware of what my body needs - active, upright, arms swinging motion. I notice there is a tone to my walk - purposeful, present, confident.  I notice the openness around me, the cleared sidewalks and roads, the clouds are softening, lightening up, revealing a soft blue sky.
