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.

My first challenge is going to be to dress warm. Maybe an obvious one, when you experience Canadian winters, but I notice I am always underdressed (I have an amazing spring jacket collection that I love showing off)But todays challenge is to wear your winter coat. 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
