On Saturday, Drew and I set out to accomplish something we've been discussing for three winters: purchasing skates. It shouldn't be hard to do, but for some reason we just didn't get it done. So on Saturday we trekked to the neighbourhood Canadian Tire to check out the skate selection. Sales were to be had, and sizes were available, so we walked out quite pleased with ourselves and our new skates.
|Drew got some funky silver hockey skates, and I got the typical|
blinding-white figure skates. If I thought I wouldn't tip over on hockey
skates, I might have gone for it. I didn't like my odds.
I'm happy we have skates now, and I think we'll get out maybe once a week or so. We have to face the facts anyway; despite the mild, springlike weather today, there are actually two full months of winter left, and maybe some winter in April too. Better not get too antsy just yet - lace up some skates and be happy for the ice.
