Day 9: Some lessons need to be learned over and over and over

Day 9: Some lessons need to be learned over and over and over

Good morning Challengers. Happy Saturday. Are weekends harder or easier for you to get outdoors? Today, I will go to yoga, and maybe go to work with Rob for a few hours, and then go to work, so probably one of those will get me outdoors for a little while-if I walk to one of them it would certainly count. Yesterday I confirmed something I have known for a long time, but I'm a slow learner or a stubborn person, so I (once again) found myself outdoors, underdressed, and really cold. 

I learned the first year of this challenge that when you plan to be outdoors for a couple hours, you dress in a very specific way. If you are going outdoors for a few minutes, you dress in a different way. As in a ridiculously unprepared for the actual weather way. 

I had to run to the letterbox to send a package and thought...well I didn't think. I just threw on my coat, and that way it. Guess what? I was all like "Oh my God it's so freezing, no one should go out today!" (be sure to read that in an annoyed teenager voice) I even considered posting and telling people not to go out because it was so cold and windy, and icy. Well, I'm sorry I thought that. I'm sorry I went out without my winter gear, and I'm sorry I didn't spend more time outdoors with better clothes on, because it was probably a really nice day, and if you read yesterday's post, I probably missed something really cool.

Until tomorrow have an outdoorsy day-but be sure to dress appropriately.


PS Photo prompt. Let's see some winter gear...with you in it.

Day 30: And we wrap it up for another year
Day 30: And we wrap it up for another year

Even though February was longer than usual this year, it felt like it went by faster, maybe it was the warm weather, with yesterday being the coldest day we had all month. Maybe just the busyness of it, maybe my kids are bigger now, I'm not struggling being shut indoors with Littles. Whichever it was I hope the challenge helped you get through the month too. 

Until next year Challengers...have an outdoorsy day.

Day 29: I think a car prevents outdoors time
Day 29: I think a car prevents outdoors time

Perhaps the reason I made so many stops was because now I have a car, I don't make that walk as often. I think this time last year, I was walking down to the Junction 3 times a week.

Day 28: When life is a cartoon

As a favour to those who had to go out to work I said I would brush off the car, then I shovelled our walk, and the best part about it was, I didn`t have to get out of my pajamas. Reminding me of this cartoon my friend made for me.
