The move from Florida to Ohio when I was nine brought a lot of changes. New school, new house, new friends and certainly new weather. I had rarely seen snow and never been on a frozen lake. That first winter, the pond down the street from our house froze and the whole family got ice skates. We learned the basics on that pond but also went to some of the hiking trails we walked the previous summer. The lakes near them were frozen as well and we would do similar loop trails on the ice. It was a very fun experience, but I rarely think back to it these days. It came up today as I walked into a co-workers office and noticed people in the distance gliding around. It’s been below freezing in Boise for a few weeks now and although the ponds don’t look it, some have frozen enough to skate on. There were two guys with skates and hockey stick slapping a puck around just outside my office window. It looked like fun. This weekend I might just have to look for a new pair of skates.

What's I'm seeing now-ishFinally assembled my @SurlyBikes Ted Trailer. I got it as part of the @TourDeFat Car For Bike Swap 4.5 years ago and having been using @an.avery.a.day 's chariot instead of this. Excited to have greater towing capacity now (300lbs, yikes!). Thanks @jimmyhallyburton for convincing me to get it. #ProcrastinatorsUniteThe #CommunityFridge is now open. We've got food, books, a handful of tools, and a few toiletries. If you need anything (or having anything to donate) please stop by 48th, just south of ThistleWe built a shelter with @SeattleCommunityFridge Now to fill the fridge with food and the shelter with canned goods, books and toolsToday on a walk, @an.avery.a.day and I found a chickadee building a nest in the hollow of a tree.A great day for a ride. Picked up 55 lbs of flour for making more bread. Bike trailers might be the greatest invention ever
