Day Four: apparently hats are more important than I realized

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.

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.
