Let's share some neighbourhood love

Let's share some neighbourhood love

Day 17
Maybe it's been all the fresh air and sunshine and outdoorsy activities I've been having this last week, but yesterday after walking home from the Junction, and walking around High Park with Cathy, I came home and slept. And slept and slept. And today after sleeping in, I took a nap and slept some more. 
Well, after all that sleeping though guess what I did. Yup, I went outdoors. Robyn and I went to the Junction and signed up for the Sketchbook Challenge at  Articulations Art Shop, then we went and had Pho -yum-, then we went to No Frills, where there were a lot of flowers, so I got a good pic for yesterday's challenge, but wait there's more, Robyn needed a Voss water bottle so we stopped at Sweet Potato, and when they didn't have one, we went to Loblaws. And that is my list of why I love the Junction! That is a serious list of stuff to do in one two block (except the Loblaws) neighbourhood. I was going to do a bit on Little Free Libraries for today's entry, but apparently, no, it's all about the neighbourhood. So, today's prompt. Let's see your 'hood. What do you like best? Where's your favourite hangout? Which is your favourite coffee shop? Share and let us know.

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.
