I’m now 10 weeks in to my current 101 Things in 1001 Days Challenge: 101 Adventures. With the seasons (hopefully!) starting to change, I knew it was time for an update. I’m happy to say that I’m exactly where I should be, and I’ve completed 8 goals in the last two and a half months. Considering the dreary, snowy weather that we’ve been having, I was surprised I’ve accomplished that much – I figured that I would complete the majority of my adventures during the summer months.
So what have I accomplished so far on my list of 101 Adventures?
MacGregor Point is a hidden gem when it comes to Ontario provincial parks. We’ve had the opportunity to visit several times now and each time we’re thrilled with the experience. Located along Lake Huron, the park offers many summer and winter activities, along with year-round camping. We visited the park
Do you feel that? Warmth. Sunshine. There may be piles of snow on the ground, but for the first time in months I didn’t freeze my butt off at the bus stop this morning. I know that winter is far from over, but I’ll take whatever little victories I can
101 Things in 1001 Days. The number of things is catchy and the number of days is supposed to make you feel that you have all the time in the world. It’s supposed to be a balance between a New Year’s resolution and a bucket list – The resolutions are
My Read the North Challenge is only a month underway, and I’ve been off to a slow, if steady start. After reading one of the books the boys got for Christmas – Carson Crosses Canada – I realized that many of the fantastic books we read with our kids
Our youngest has a birthday coming up, and we’re shopping for a new bike for him. He figured out the two wheel thing at the end of last summer, so it’s time for an upgrade. Just this morning, he told me that he was going to ride his bike on
I’ve mentioned this before, but we’ve really been making an effort to get outside and stay active through these long, cold winter months. It’s tough sometimes, especially when all I want to do is cozy up inside under a blanket and there’s white stuff coming down out of the sky.
I’ve been blogging on and off for years, usually with no thought to the bigger picture. I’ve never been sure of the direction I’m heading in, or put any kind of plan into place in regards to scheduling, marketing or end goals. I’ve certainly never thought about what kind of
It’s two weeks in, but I’m very much still in the planning stages of my 101 Adventures in 1001 Days. I’ve completed just one thing on my list – Go for a walk in the snow. Which, let’s face it, was fairly easy considering the weather we’ve had. That
You know that feeling of just being so overwhelmed with everything, that you think it might be easier to do nothing instead? You’re so over-scheduled with activities, appointments, works events, chores, just everything, that you feel like you don’t have a single moment to yourself, let alone any free time
I’ve spent the last couple of days trying to decide on which book challenges I’m going to participate in this year. I’ve considered several, including Beat the Backlist, the Read Harder Challenge, and the Cross Canada Challenge. Then I found this: The Master List of 2018 Reading Challenges. Then I
