Day 30: The challenge becomes full circle

Day 30: The challenge becomes full circle

February 1, 2016

Day One:
It's a crazy warm February day, so let's get outdoors and enjoy the sunshine. Your photo challenge for today is to take a photo of where you come back to after your outdoors activity. In my case I'm at my mom's in beautiful Dundas, Ontario, so I came back from walking to the post office to my mom's 150 year old house.
Tomorrow's photo challenge will be in your inbox tomorrow morning.
Have an Outdoorsy Day

Good Morning Challengers!
Today is the last day of our 30 day challenge. Bitter sweet. 
I realized yesterday that two years ago I began the challenge at my Mom's in Dundas, and thought it was very full circle that I'm closing the challenge this year at my Mom's. 
Bobby and I are heading back to Toronto today, back to real life, (and back to wintery weather?)
I want to thank all of you. For the little notes you have sent me, for the words of encouragements, for letting me know you are out there and are enjoying the emails and photos. Really I guess I should be thanking all of you for my mid-winter-mental-health! Doing this challenges keeps my focus on positive things like outdoors (obviously), but also, creativity (writing), challenges (the photo ideas) and off things like cabin fever, lethargy, inertia, and depression. (no pressure and thanks).
As with every year, I never know what to say on this last day, as I am very bad at good-byes, so I'll just close out today by saying.
Until next year
Have an outdoorsy day.

Today's photo prompt: Selfie-I'll post mine on Facebook and Instagram.

And because I can't resist, let's have one more photo of the llamas!

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.

Good For You Momma
Good For You Momma

 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.
