Though I have something serious that I want to write about, it won’t happen tonight. Because you see, the children I work with are so very cute and sweet but, well…they’re also snot-filled germ-bags at this time of year. 🙂 I say that in the fondest way possible, but after being sneezed and coughed on all week and passing out tissues to soothe dozens of runny noses, I’ve caught The Ick myself.
Wandering around the store this evening waiting for one of my girls to finish her club volleyball practice, I thought to myself feverishly, “I would lie down right here on the floor and go straight to sleep if I weren’t afraid of ending up on People of Walmart“:
Anyway, I’m exhausted and sick, so the serious essay will have to wait a day or two. However, last Sunday I finished shoveling and sweeping our backyard pond ice rink and then I used my iPad (hence the poor quality of the video) to record a very shaky clip of my first skate around the rink. Philip has since done a trial flooding and squeegeeing of it, but then it snowed again and warmed up a bit, so it needs to be re-shoveled.
But while I snuggle down in bed with honey-lemon tea and a book, have a look at the early fruit of our labor…
