Day One: The cold is a just mindset

Day One: The cold is a just mindset

Welcome. Welcome very brave outdoorsy folks. 
Welcome to the 2019 Outdoors Everyday 30 Day Challenge.
This year I once again find myself at my mom's house. It's getting to be a tradition, facing February from Dundas, Ontario. 
I hope I can encourage and inspire you to join me in 30 days of overcoming the temptation to stay indoors, with the assurance that you'll feel better if you go out for even just a little bit. Face February head on, not be afraid of a little cold and join me on a daily foray into the outdoors. It'll be fine, don't worry, it'll be worth it, and more than likely, you will feel better for it. 
But it's cold you say.
Yes it is, but if you bundle, and take a few extra minutes to find your really warm fleece sweater, it will make all the difference. 
That was a note to self, disregard if you have your sweater handy.
Until tomorrow have an outdoorsy day.
The photo prompt for Day one:
Take a picture showing how cold it is, so you can be extra proud of yourself for going out.

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.

Good For You Momma
Good For You Momma

 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.
