The warm weather continues this week in the southwest (at least until the weekend!).
Was out getting in my physical activity for the Community Services Wellness Challenge, running and trying not to slip and fall on the incredibly icy sidewalks.
Yesterday, with temperatures hitting the double digits, I saw an awful lot of people out walking and running and some were even wearing shorts!
Sometimes, with nice weather comes not-so-nice road conditions.
Potholes, mud, puddles, and the like.
For the first time ever as a runner, I was splashed from HEAD TO TOE by a driver not paying attention (or, maybe they were paying attention and realized it was me, and thought this would be a good practical joke).
My hair was drenched, jacket, tights, and sneakers... for once, I was thankful to be dressed completely in black (laundry would be interesting otherwise).
So a word of caution to drivers out there - slow down if you see pedestrians! Had the weather been below freezing, I could have been a human popsicle!
It's Family Literacy Week in the City of Swift Current, and there's an event tomorrow to celebrate it at the Swift Current Mall. "Score One for Literacy" features Grade 3 classes from around the City... and there are even going to be celebrity readers 9am, 10am, 12:30pm, and 1:30pm!
Located outside Safeway at the mall, this event will be a great way to promote literacy in families in the southwest. The team at the Swift Current Library are doing a super job with this event - call them to find out more information at 306-778-2752.
Tracey & I will be dropping in to say hi so we look forward to seeing you there!
