On 25 January, I took two hours off from work and treated myself to a lunch at Panera. I had their winter chicken, apple chip salad and it was so delicious. I love Panera’s salads and their gluten-free soups.
I then made my way to the skating rink and I was amazed how windy it was. I ended up renting an ice walker because the wind was blowing me around. The rink wasn’t crowded and while I wanted to skate for a second session, but it was too windy to skate for an extra hour and a half. I skated from 3-4:30 and made a new friend in the wind. Her name was Houda and she was learning how to skate. I showed her a little bit, but the wind wasn’t helpful.
After the library on 26 January, I went skating again and managed to skate for two sessions. Both sessions were crowded as anything, but during the intermission, figure skaters took the ice and performed for us. That was neat. 🙂
