Repost. Outdoors Everyday Challenge Day 7

Day 7
Yesterday I wrote a little bit about being inspired to go outside, and I've since thought alot about what inspires me to go out. I've asked friends, and my sister. I've wondered, and I really haven't come up with an answer. I could think of what may not inspire me to go out. If I look outside and it's gray and rainy, I may here my mother say in her English accented voice, "well, that's not very inspiring, hmmm." But inspired to go out. No. It is just a need. An, if I don't come out at some point, my day doesn't feel right, feeling. A bit like an itch that needs to be scratch that grows more demanding as the day goes on. A few times a year I will relish in a pajama day, and feel like I've gotten away with something. But for the most part I do not need inspiration to go outdoors, I just need to put my boots on.
Others however did come up with some outdoors inspirations, here are some things that my friends and family listed as being inspiring to get them outdoors:
Blue skies
Warmish temperatures
A outdoor companion
Their kids.
Their dog

I don't know if this post will help get you into the outdoors mood, and today I do beleive we will need a lot of that as the weather is supposed to be bad.
Until tomorrow, have an outdoorsy day

I would like to talk about something I witnessed in town over the last several weeks. As I mentioned previously, we had a Polar Vortex. It was too cold to walk to the grocery store, let alone just sit outside all day. Which is what a member of this town had been doing for months.

My Winter Walks
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.
