This May, I took part in the 30x30 challenge from the David Suzuki Foundation - challenging people to spend 30 minutes outside every day of the 30 (31) days of May. I documented each day though Instagram- some days are very full and long with work but this challenge forced me to be creative. I actually took some lunch "breaks" to go for a walk outside or if I was at a conference or at meetings in another city, I found some local trails or parks to get myself outside to. Some days, it was all I could do to get myself into our backyard and water the garden or sit on the deck and continue my work...but at least I was outside! May was a beautiful month for this challenge and I was again reminded how fortunate we are to live where we live.
Mother's day...thank you boys.
Trips to Medicine Hat and Calgary for work and studies, back and forth across the Rockies.
And some culinary adventures...the #bakingbucketlist Hummingbird Cake
and a poaching broth ready for when I am came home with a bag of the elusive spot prawns...after an hour in line, I was not successful and settled for a big bag of regular shrimp from the docks.
Colin has been busy with his two jobs and school events - always up for a spirit day at school! Adam celebrated the end of exams with a camping trip to Alice Lake with a group of friends. Lots of planning went into this trip for Adam as he was only one of two of the eight who had been camping before. They had a great time.
Neil and I actually made it out for dinner one evening this month and had a lovely day out at Deer Lake Park on the long weekend. We both know that our schedules, particularly Neil's, ramp up mid-May through to the beginning of July so it was nice to have some time together!
