Ice Skates

Just in time to prove how easy the Olympic ice skaters truly make it appear, the girls were able to go ice skating this afternoon on an inside rink.

For me this visit was like going back in time and I experienced those tingly feelings of a deja vu magnitude. This particular sports center contains not only a ice skating rink, but a pool as well, and happens to be the same one I spent many a Saturday attending swim meets when Witt was a year round swimmer.

We would sweat in the humidity and warmth on the poolside, then hurry over to the rink side from time to time in order to cool off.

Today I was freezing but I did not hurry over to the pool side to warm up, I drank hot chocolate instead.

the 13th of October

Friday, the 13th, and at last the weather has turned cooler. I breathe deeply as I turn off the air-conditioner and slide open a few windows...
