Day 27: I hear we are getting more weather

Day 27: I hear we are getting more weather

Good morning Challengers. Rob told me yesterday that we are supposed to get another 15 cm of snow today. I know we have had lots of it already this month, sometimes record breaking amounts. But, even with all the wintery weather we've had, at our house we have missed a few essential winter activities.

My first thought when Rob told me it's going to snow again was 'I have take Bobby tobogganing.' Yes, believe it or not, we have gone this whole winter, a winter with perfect winter weather, and we have not been tobogganing. 

That right there is not only a mothering fail, it was a wintering fail. But as the challenge has held me accountable to get outdoors everyday, I'm going to use it to keep me accountable to take my poor neglected 13 year old tobogganing.

Pictures to come.

So. Is there a winter activity that you love that you haven't done yet? Now is your chance. Outdoor rinks are open if you haven't been skating; nature trails will be gorgeous; if you haven't been hiking; and those cross country skiis-get those suckers out of the basement.

Until tomorrow-have an outdoorsy day.

Photos prompt-show us the snow.

Everyone put on your mittens, hats... even scarves.Then go outside.Robyn

Good Day Challengers.
Wow! Somehow February started without me really noticing and here we are at February 7 and for the first time in over 10 years, I don't have the challenge up and running. To be fair I was hit hard my the flu last week, but I'm here now and ready to be challenging :)
I've reached out to other outdoorsy people to share some of their winter insights, so I'm excited to see what outdoorsy shenanigans we can get up to this year.

Day 30: goodbye until next year
Day 30: goodbye until next year

Over the years this challenge has gotten me out the door more times than I can count-and I’ve always. Yes always, felt better for it because to quote my good outdoorsy friend Renee. Getting out the door is the hardest part. ( I may be paraphrasing
