In The Pipeline, #48walks

In The Pipeline + #48walks

In The Pipeline, #48walks
5/48 Walk with Taido in Kirkhill Forest. 6/48 Walk with Claire through Seaton Park. 7/48 Walk with the boys in Misty Bucksburn. 8/48 Simon’s new walk to school.

Hello Friday! I cannot tell you how glad I am going to be to see February (and winter) in my rear view mirror. I know I still have lots of gray weather in the days ahead but the evenings are stretching out longer.

It just feels better. Like moving forward. Into the light.

For February I have been telling stories about Walking in the Dark, so it should come as no surprise that in March my story theme will be Walking in the Light.

Speaking of walking, in order to catch up on blogging for #48walks, the above four pictures represent walks 5, 6, 7, & 8. I’m recording them here and calling them blogged.

Is that cheating? I hear you asking.

Of course not! If you are walking with me this year, you might remember that the only rule is that there are no rules. Walk along, blog along, photograph along in any way you wish!

Freedom, y’all!

I love seeing the walks that other bloggers are sharing. Here are a few from the last couple of weeks.

Sarabeth walked in Hot Springs.

Paige walked to an Old Barn.

Jen walked with her kiddos in to a Land of Dreams and Fairy Tales.

Melissa is walking into A New Writing Project that took her all the way to London.

Kate walked to Rapid Creek.

And here are a few more of my favorite internet finds for weekend reading.

Wonderful advice on writing (and life) from my friend Kyran Pittman

Advice about completing a novel from a great (new to me) website on writing.

A Story about Winter Adventure in Scotland (There’s a reason I’m waiting for spring!)

An Incredibly Honest Story about Trusting God

This Story about How Religion Ruined My Childhood made me sad + curious to read her book.

Scotland is voting this year on becoming independent from the United Kingdom, which is super fascinating to me. I actually learned a lot about the relationship between England and Scotland by reading this funny apology from one country to another.

Why we love to read (and should be telling) the miserable parts of travel.

I loved this piece on how travel can help you through a breakup. I think these principles apply to almost any setback or hardship in life. Travel is a break not just from my current circumstances, but from who I am in my current circumstances. I am always surprising myself when I travel by what I can accomplish by myself.

I’m learning my way around my new kitchen and we are now a five minute walk from the grocery store, so I am hoping to try this curry and this lasagna this weekend. I might even go crazy andย  try these muffins in Tiny Oven 2.0.

I’ve had a few requests for pictures of the new house and since I’m all about the nature feed on Instagram, I have started a Vine account to do videos of just whatever is happening around here. No filters + No editing = No Pressure! It is a little bit boring to me, but at least you can see what our world looks like. If you want.

I hope you have a lovely weekend and that March brings you sunshine instead of wind + rain!
