This is Canada. We have winter. Embrace it!

Day 5 People!!

Winter has come back to us, unlike last year, when winter took a little hiatus, and we had lots of spring like weather in February. This February, we are having a bit more true winter weather, and I am loving it.

Our lives are pretty busy, everyone's lives are pretty busy but Sundays are my day when I don't have to rush out the door early, don't have to wake up anyone for anything, and I savour it. Early in the day, I like to think  to myself-I'm going to stay in my pajamas all day, I'm not going anywhere, and I'm not getting dressed. But by 4:00, I start to get a bit antsy, start looking for things to do.  I play hockey at the High Park outdoor rink, on Sunday nights, so while Sunday mornings, I'm all -I'm not going to hockey, I'm staying in my pj's all day- it never lasts. This week in particular was the perfect evening for playing outdoor hockey; not to cold, and beautiful snow falling.

Having an outdoor sport/activity to do one or more times a week, makes all the difference. Is there a winter sport you've been thinking to try? This is Canada, we have winter. Embrace it!

Today's photo prompt: Winter sports-pic(k) one.

Until tomorrow

Have an outdoorsy day.

Now I can't really blame my not getting any place on my kids anymore. Sure sometimes Bobby is reluctant, but I can always go without him. It's not like the olden days where I had to wrestle four kids, a stroller, a diaper bag, and 3 snowsuits, to go to the store! Now I just have to put my shells over my pjs and get goin'.

 I was considering taking a selfy holding up today's paper standing out side Shoppers Drug Mart, but that seemed perhaps overkill, and I figured everyone would trust me if I said I did go out.
