The skating rink got wrecked. Long story. Ice is unpredictable.
So today I decided to fix it. I went out and sprayed water on it from about 10 am to 3 pm, trying to fill in all the uneven spots that had developed. Long story. I won’t tell it.
After a couple hours, I put my robe on over my coat and snow pants and brought a chair out to the ice, and my book. I read the book and sprayed the ice in my cozy robe for a couple more hours.
My neighbor Dana came out and said, “You know, this makes you weird.”
Yes. It was warm, and it felt good to be out in the natural light.
