Day 23: Days that are stacked like Jenga blocks

Day 23: Days that are stacked like Jenga blocks

Good morning Challengers. How are you? Yesterday was a very beautiful day weatherwise wasn't it? And despite being very busy I managed a nice walk to the Junction and back.

Did you get out? I still haven't managed that 'nature' walk I've been craving, but hopefully this weekend. Interestingly I'm talking about a 'nature walk' with a very specific place in mind, but I did do a lot of walking yesterday and even the side streets of Toronto contain a substantial amount of nature.

As I walked along a quiet street, the sounds of the snow melting and running along the street under the banks along the side of the street were reminiscent of walking beside a brook. At the same time the bushes were alive with sparrows, and somewhat ominously there was a very noisy flock of seagulls flying around overhead.

On another note, I got this email from my sister Mandy this morning, who has been a great supporter of the challenge this year:

This is "the sister" and yes, I can agree, Anna hasn't been calling in February desperation so much this year.  Getting outdoors everyday must be helping.  I was out at 7:15 this morning for a walk and noticed cardinals singing like mad.  They must know spring is coming.  I also noticed that the moon was not actually round, more like a blobby oval.  Strange, but fun to notice.  Loving being outside each day.

My challenge for myself (and you) is to get out in some nature this weekend. That's High Park, or the Lakeshore if you you're in Toronto, or the Lynne Valley Trail if you're in Simcoe.

Today's photo challenge-Here is a pic of my favourite types of trees it's a sycamore-I saw it walking along that side street with the noise sparrows and seagulls.

Until tomorrow-have an outdoorsy day.

Day 30: CONGRATULATIONS!!!! We made it
Day 30: CONGRATULATIONS!!!! We made it

I think that will be my take away from the challenge this year: That going outdoors isn't always enough, sometimes you need to really get to the park, or the lake, or the river, or the farm, or small town Ontario....or wherever you feel close to nature.

Day 29: I'm already thinking about my next 30 Day Challenge
Day 29: I'm already thinking about my next 30 Day Challenge

Yesterday I signed up for the sketchbook challenge-it starts March 1st-so I'm already thinking about how I'll fit art into my day-it's a bit messier and more involved than typing a post on a laptop-but I guess that's why it's called a 'challenge'.
