Well, it seems like summer has finally arrived to the Northeast. We turned on the air conditioning last night and next week looks like a mixture of mid 80s to mid 90s. Yuck.
I’m grateful that roller skating is back and both rinks opened early. You read that right: two! Of course Blue Cross opened their rink and it’ll run through Labor Day. Rothman is trying their hand at roller skating too, but their rink is opened through June only.
I checked out the Rothman skating rink two weeks ago and had a blast. I like how they made it retro too. On 8 May 2021, it was 65 degrees. Perfect skating weather!
Last Friday I returned to my old stomping grounds, Blue Cross River Rink in Penn’s Landing. Last Friday it was 69 degrees and windy. Again, perfect skating weather! It’s so nice roller skating when it’s cool and there is a breeze. I met some awesome people at this skating rink too.
It feels so good to be back! I feel like singing these songs too, as we return to a new normal (while still being careful and taking precaution).
Dad and I got our second dose of Moderna last Saturday and after a few days of fever, I feel better. Dad feels better too. One more week until we are fully vaccinated! I am grateful. Although the CDC said vaccinated people can take off their masks, I’m leaving mine on. I have chronic conditions and feel safer. The library still requires a mask, even if you’re vaccinated, as does SEPTA and most places still require it. I’m grateful.
WOW! I sent my book review to North Atlantic Books the other night and Emily responded!
