Day Four: apparently hats are more important than I realized

Good morning Challengers. How was your weekend? Is getting out of the house easier for you or harder for you on weekends. Luckily here at Headquarters we have a hockey player, so it's rare the day we don't have a game or practice to get to.
Yesterday I challenged you to take a picture of a hat and I would tell you why later.'s later...and this is why. It's about gear, today specifically about hats. Last week when we had that bitter cold spell, I was wearing Thom's hockey toque and was very happy with it, in fact I didn't really give it much thought. But, when I came home, he took it back so I grabbed one of Rob's hats-more of a skullcap style. Which I love the look of, but I was cold. My ears were cold, my head was cold, and my whole self was colder than usual. And I thought, a good hat makes a real difference. So, if you find yourself cold, make sure you have a good hat.
Until tomorrow, have an outdoorsy day.
and your photo prompt...puddles, cuz they're fun...for toddlers.

Day 27: outdoors as a sensory experience.
Day 27: outdoors as a sensory experience.

I am aware of what my body needs - active, upright, arms swinging motion. I notice there is a tone to my walk - purposeful, present, confident.  I notice the openness around me, the cleared sidewalks and roads, the clouds are softening, lightening up, revealing a soft blue sky.
