Ok here is the update; I did decide to skate in our parking lot. Ha ha, and it was fun! Refer back to this post if you have no idea what I am talking about. And if you are wondering, I will report back to my sister very soon. Our neighbor’s even poked their heads out their window and said that they were thinking the same thing, and an older guy walked by and said they used to skate on the streets all over town.
Living here in the winter can be hard with all the slipping, sliding and nearly freezing to death daily (or a combination of all three–not preferable of course) but since I hate the cold, I am trying to have a good time despite the cold. My challenge to myself is to do all the things now that I won’t be able to do in a few months, such as: ice skating in the parking lot, sledding/snowshoeing to class (very possible), making snow angels, making snow cones, making a snow cone business (I can see it now), and skiing. By the way, we went skiing (maybe I shouldn’t say skiing, after all I was the only one skiing) with our good friends Brandilyn and Dave last night, it was a blast! What do you do for fun in the cold? I could use some more ideas because honestly I think the snow cone business is a no-go; 10 (maybe 2) years ago it would have been at the top of my list.
