Day 19: A Peak Inside My Head...and it's not pretty

Day 19: A Peak Inside My Head...and it's not pretty

Good morning Challengers, Happy Family Day! 

1.  I was going to do a mini series on gear, and layering, and what to wear for different temperatures and activities, but then, I went to hockey, thinking I had dressed appropriately in fleece long johns under my shells. Well I overheated in about 3 minutes. Not good. By the time I got off the ice, my face was so red, I looked like a tomato. Then I remembered how I was so cold on Thursday, and thought to myself "how can I possibly think I am qualified to tell anybody how to dress!!"

2.  So then I thought I would write today's post on Thom's hockey game today-because it was thrilling. I'll cut to the chase, and just tell you that Thom's team was playing today for a play off spot. They win they go to the play offs; lose their season is over. Thom's team was winning 3-2. The other team scored with 3 minutes left to tie it up 3-3.

Then with .5 seconds left in the game Thom scored!!!!!!!!!!

Yes he did!!!

3.  Today, I baked my famous bananna chocolate chip muffins, that I usually make 4-5 times a week. It's the perfect recipe because it makes 12 muffins. Today, I substituted 1 cup of flour for a gluten free flour. And nobody noticed, if anything, people liked then better! So then I was thinking maybe I would do a 30 day gluten free challenge, and blog about it here. Then I wondered if I am getting addicted to 30 day challenges. 

4.  okay well, that may be all, maybe I should have named this post 3 posts for the price of one.

Tomorrow I promise to return to our regularly scheduled outdoors inspiring post. 

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
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.

Good For You Momma
Good For You Momma

 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.
