Day 6-Turn Waiting Time into Outdoors Time

Day 6-Turn Waiting Time into Outdoors Time

6 Days. Wow. Have you gone outdoors everyday for 6 days? How are you feeling? I hope you are feeling proud of yourself. Sunday night one of my team mates at hockey told me she was inspired to come to hockey on Sunday evenings because it was outdoors. Certainlyit was a very beautiful night to play outdoor hockey. I feel so lucky to live in Toronto, with free outdoor rinks in every neighbourhood. 

Yesterday I had a plan to go skate on the outdoor trail at the bottom of Kipling, but Bobby informed me he hated skating, and wanted to go to The Monkey Vault indoor parkour that's what we did. I traded outdoor for active and counted it a parenting win. I still needed to get outdoors though, so what I did was, I went for a walk while waiting for Thom's hockey to start. Thom has to be at hockey 1 hour before his game time. Often one of the moms will join me for a walk to fill in the time. 

Is there a hole in your day where you are waiting on something? A time that you could fill in with an outdoor walk? Find a friend, it makes it much more fun.

Today's photo challenge-look at this beautiful picture I captured at High Park Sunday night. I challenge you to take a beautiful picture-it's winter-there is beauty everywhere...let's see it.

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.
