(hand-shoveled rink on Cobb's pond)
(j lacing up)
(fishing and bucket-sitting in a bay)
j and i have been spending a lot of time skating and snowboarding. i am loving the shoveling, really. my abs and back are going to be so strong. and it is so cool to see people ice fishing everywhere. they just drill a hole in the ice, throw the line down, sit on their bucket, and wait. people usually bring hot coffee and snacks. an ice picnic. i want.
