Outdoors Everyday Challenge Day 6

Outdoors Everyday Challenge Day 6

Day 6. How was your weekend? Did you get outside? Was it great? I had a great weekend, it was warm, there was a little bit of snow, I had a fun walk with my good friend and walking buddy, and even got to go skating with Thom for an hour just him and I. While out on my walk with my friend, we discussed the Outdoors Everyday Challenge and I told her I didn't feel like it was being encouraging enough. My friend pointed out that I should be careful not to be bossy. I wondered if the posts were inspiring enough. So now I'm wondering, what inspires me to go outside. hmmmmmmm. I'm not sure. Having a walking friend is a big part of it. Living close to parks and beautiful places to walk helps too. Now I'm really thinking, 'what inspires me to go outdoors?'  Tomorrow I'll tell you my answer.....or more like answers.

These ladies were inspired to go outdoors and hand-feed the sparrows.

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.
