The river crossings weren’t quite as bad today.

It was tough out there this morning, but another long run is in the books.

Crazy weather.

30 Day Minimalist Challenge (Days 18 & 29)

My 30 Day Challenge is taking me quite a bit longer than 30 days. The virtual disconnect and the holidays set me back initially, but now it’s stupid, stupid day number 28: Tackle something you’ve been putting off or avoiding. My plan is to get my name changed on my passport. I’ve been putting it off forever and even though I now have a reason to get it done (stupid, stupid day number 28), I still haven’t gotten around to doing it. I plan to, though. Soon. In the meantime, I went back to day 18 and jumped ahead to day 29. Sometimes we just have to do what we can.

18. Virtual disconnect

I checked my email once this morning and I’m going to again before I go to bed. I also checked the weather forecast and watched a YouTube video on knitting (for day number 29) but I haven’t looked at any social media all day. I deleted my Facebook account a couple of months ago, but I still spend time everyday looking through Instagram and Twitter. I’ve been thinking pretty seriously about getting off Twitter, too. Maybe this disconnect will convince me to go ahead and do it.

I’ve reached for my phone several times today to just flip through and see what’s going on and a few times to Google something before remembering that I can’t. It’s habit. I don’t like to admit it, but I spend a lot of time on my phone.

29. Try something new. You’ve almost completed a 30 Day Challenge on Simplifying and Minimizing! Have you completed one before? If you’ve answered “No” then you’ve already tried something new! Today, try something else.

I’m learning how to knit! I bought needles and yarn years ago, and they’ve been sitting in a drawer until now. I can cast on and knit stitch and I’m pretty excited about it.

Oh, and learning to knit is extra fun when you have cats walking all over you and your computer and chewing on your yarn.

Dontation box: I may not have been keeping up with the daily challenges, but I’ve been really good about getting rid of things. My donation box is overflowing and I’m not finished yet.

Some recent additions: khaki pants, calf sleeves, Aquajogger, pull-up bar and an extra yoga mat.

It was hard to get out there, but ended up being a really nice run in the woods.

Snow!

Cold but beautiful.

They weren’t  actually open, but it was still cozy and inviting on a cold, blustery morning.
