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.

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

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'.
