Day 29: I'm already thinking about my next 30 Day Challenge

Day 29: I'm already thinking about my next 30 Day Challenge

Good morning Challengers. It's our second to last day :( that's so sad in a way. I have to say, having done this challenge for a few year now, this has been the most unusual February. For one reason the weather has been crazy fun (interpret that however you like) and because of reasons mysterious and eluding. 

One thing I thought today (as I saw that puddles was once again the photo prompt) that this year I hadn't ever jumped out of bed in the middle of the night with a "I forgot to post my blog!" Not proud of myself.

I did get outdoors everyday, even if it wasn't for extended periods of time. I did recognize that, when I got a bit angsty, that I needed some nature and I did get that nature. I heard from other Challengers sharing their challenge adventures, that's always inspiring. Other times though, I doubted whether or not I was inspiring enough. I felt the loss of a good camera a lot. I missed going photo collecting, that is something that I will not let happen next year, as it did affect my enjoyment of the month, and my ipod just doesnt' take good pictures-in fact it only works on self mode.

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'.

Well, enjoy the first day of March-can you find something with the date on it to photograph...that sounds like a real challenge.

Until tomorrow-have an outdoorsy day

I would like to talk about something I witnessed in town over the last several weeks. As I mentioned previously, we had a Polar Vortex. It was too cold to walk to the grocery store, let alone just sit outside all day. Which is what a member of this town had been doing for months.

My Winter Walks
My Winter Walks

I am just back from a walk along the country road where I live, a road bordered by fields and stands of trees. My intention was to get some exercise, which meant covering some distance at a reasonable pace. My intention is important, as it affects many other choices: type of shoes, clothing, walking poles, water, binoculars, camera etc.

 After stopping for the dogs to poop and stopping to change Jett’s diaper (twice) we were off!! We walked through a sunny meadow, climbed up the frozen cascades and returned via a side trail that skirted the riverbank. Bliss.
