Day 26: It seems to be working

Day 26: It seems to be working

Good morning Challengers, Day 26!!
Well, my post from yesterday really seemed to cause a bit of a stir. I heard from a few different people that they had been feeling 'flat' as well. My friend Ruth suggested to crank the '80's music loud, and dance your troubles away, and she's a pretty happy person, so I imagine her advice works.
Feeling not as energetic as I usually am, I wondered if I was experiencing some February blahs, (the ones I used to call my sister complaining about every year) and so I went and dug back through the Outdoors Everyday archives to see if this had happened before. 
Well, it seems as if the challenge has effectively staved off this end of winter curse. I had to go back to 2017 to find evidence of winter blues, and it was a post on February 24, 2017 labelled SAD. In that post I said, while I had been out everyday, I hadn't spent a lot of time outdoors, and committed to spending two hours out side that day. The next day I reported feeling amazing and figured a good dose of fresh air and sunshine had fixed me. 
All that said, I don't think you can ever go wrong spending a couple hours outdoors getting some sunshine and fresh air. Last night I was out for two hours playing shinny, getting the fresh air, but sadly no sunshine. I'll keep you posted if that was enough to restore me, if not, I'll be dedicating myself to some suntime.

Until tomorrow, have an outdoorsy day.

Today's photo prompt is inspired by Bobby finding an old SD card, and finding some old pictures on it. It seems to be an old picture kind of day, because Raynbow posted a picture of herself from likely twenty years ago! The prompt-something over 20 years old.

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.
