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-ishGot to try trapeze for the second time tonight. Thanks to #SANCA staff and volunteers for letting me do it and for talking to @an.avery.a.day while I was flying. (I'm not pictured here. Forgot to ask for a photo. This was the next guy who had way more experience)Scenes from the last week: sour dough bread, Starbucks automatic espresso machine (disassembled), Dom in the garden, beer in the sun.When there's a dragon in your town, you must say hi.Follow up on yesterday's post. The spigot has now been replaced and water is only coming out when (and where) it's supposed to. The pictures of the crawlspace where the work happened were to dark to share.Any plumbing experts out there? I think the split is a problem, but want a second opinion.
