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: 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'.
