Day 19: Outdoors even when you're not well?

Day 19: Outdoors even when you're not well?

Good morning Challengers. Last week the flu hit our house. Thom texted on Monday that he was coming home early from school because he felt sick. He spent the next two days in bed, and resting on the couch. He's a very busy guy so I knew he really was sick when he spent all Tuesday sleeping. Still on Thursday he didn't want to go out, but I suggested he come to the grocery store with me and he eagerly accepted...that's how bored he was. 

We walked the three blocks to the grocery store and home again. It was a sunny day, and I think the fresh air did him good, but he went back to bed when we got home.

I believe after a few days home sick, fresh air is important, but more than that I think it's important for your mental health to have a change of scenery, and some sunshine. I have no evidence or proof or study to site, just my mother's intuition.

Why am I writing this today and not when it was happening last remind myself to get outdoors today even thought I'm not feeling 100%.

Until tomorrow have an outdoorsy day. 

Your photo prompt for today: Can you find a snowman? Last week on take a picture of half of something day I thought of taking a picture of a pile of snow and saying it was half a snowman.

Day 30: And we wrap it up for another year
Day 30: And we wrap it up for another year

Even though February was longer than usual this year, it felt like it went by faster, maybe it was the warm weather, with yesterday being the coldest day we had all month. Maybe just the busyness of it, maybe my kids are bigger now, I'm not struggling being shut indoors with Littles. Whichever it was I hope the challenge helped you get through the month too. 

Until next year Challengers...have an outdoorsy day.

Day 29: I think a car prevents outdoors time
Day 29: I think a car prevents outdoors time

Perhaps the reason I made so many stops was because now I have a car, I don't make that walk as often. I think this time last year, I was walking down to the Junction 3 times a week.

Day 28: When life is a cartoon

As a favour to those who had to go out to work I said I would brush off the car, then I shovelled our walk, and the best part about it was, I didn`t have to get out of my pajamas. Reminding me of this cartoon my friend made for me.
