Holy Heck we're half way through

Day 15
Half way through, and I`m feeling pretty good. How about you? Has getting out everyday helped you get through the month? 
I think the snow this weekend was a balm for kids and grown ups. It was for me. For some reason I found it very restorative. Gave the world a good cleaning.
At this point, I start to feel the end of winter approach, and start to have a scarcity mentality about all the activities that I need to fit in, before it's over. More skating, more tobogganing, and oh my god, we haven't gone skiing yet!
I saw the 3 day forecast, and it`s supposed to be very warm this weekend. So let`s enjoy it. I`m going to try to stop grumbling about how warm this winter has been, and just enjoy whatever weather comes my way. Maybe if I bought a really fun pair of puddle boots I would like the warmer weather more. hmmmm
Until tomorrow, have an outdoorsy day.

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.
