Day 28: This is my life

Day 28: This is my life

Good morning Challengers. Are you loving the snow? I am, yes I am. Yesterday, I had the nicest walk in the snow, and I had two thoughts while I walked. One was: people who bought Smittens early-like in October-they really got their money's worth. And the second one was this: I need to write a blog post about how I ended up taking this amazing walk.

Here is the story of the walk I took because it's very representative of a day in the life of me.

Last week it occurred to me I needed to get a move on with the patterns for my swimsuits for this year and even the Smittens for next year. I email my pattern maker the remarkable Susan Kee (give her a call if you need any sewing done) and we made an appointment to meet yesterday (Wednesday morning) at 10. Then I remembered I do homeschool kids swap at that time, and emailed her back and postponed for the afternoon. Susan is very flexible. Then when I woke up in the morning I got an email postponing the homeschool kid swap until Friday. Redirecting my plan again, I asked Rob if he could drop me down in the Junction, negating me taking the bus to go in the afternoon. I shot an email off to Susan telling her I would in fact meet her at 10. Rob dropped me off and Susan wasn't there yet, but it was a bit before 10, so I wasn't worried. Of course after I got all my coat and mitts and snow pants off, I check my phone to see an message from Susan saying she's downtown buying supplies and won't be in until the afternoon. I dressed back up and walked home.  Two and a half kilometres of beautiful snowy day walking.

Life is good. 

Two days left!

Until tomorrow-have an outdoorsy day.

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.
