Thankful Thursday: December 14, 2017

Today I am thankful that ice skating season started again. On Sunday I was flying thanks to the ice walker. That is what the contraption is called. I am thankful that the river rink allows people of all ages to rent the ice walker. It helps.

I am also thankful for my parents and friends. On Tuesday evening, Ms. Voula, a library co-worker, gave me a beautiful gift. I wrapped it up and put it in my happiness box. I can't wait to hang it up.

What are you thankful for?

Ice Walking Video

Here is a video from Friday. Shady, this contraption is called an "ice walker."

Ice Skating Adventures 12/8/2017 (Picture Entry)

Last night I was finally feeling well enough to go ice skating again. I arrived at 5, just as the sun set for the evening and the trees became illuminated with colourful lights. I laced up my skates and rented that contraption again. Until I get reacclimated to the ice and until I buy a helmet, I'm using this contraption to avoid injury.

The person who took my picture in front of the trees. We were about to get a selfie until this woman skating by asked if she could take the picture. I wasn't going to turn her down. Nice guy.

I had a lot of fun. I like the RiverRink more than I like the Oaks rink. While the teenagers here can be ugh, at least they do not bother others like that teenager in Oaks. Most people are friendlier in Philadelphia and I can meet many nice people while skating. I'm not the best at it, but moving around and having fun makes me feel good.

Toronto has an ice rink like this. I was thinking last night: "just think, I could have been skating there this year if things worked out in my favour this time around. Ah, well, maybe next year and I have something to work towards!"

Ice skating also opened up my sinuses! I felt great afterwards. I can't wait to go back tomorrow!

Around Philadelphia 11/26/2017

After Christina and I finished at the Academy of Natural Sciences, we decided to walk from 19th and the Ben Franklin Parkway to 8th and South, where the vegan restaurant was located. It took us about 45 minutes to walk the 20 blocks, but we noticed a lot of interesting sites on the way. One site was this cat statue that was bolted to a telephone pole. Why? No explanation needed. It was cool to see, though.

I am not a vegan, but since Christina ate halal food with me in the past, I wanted to show support to her. I can't have soy for health reasons, so I ordered vegan sushi without the tofu. It was delicious! I also had chickpea soup, which was pretty good. I preferred the sushi, though.

On our way to the Market-Frankfort Line, I noticed Repo Records had a metal head Grinch cut out displayed in the window. I had to get a selfie.

Christina and I had a nice day out last Sunday.

Wild Wizarding Sunday with Christina

I'm finally feeling somewhat better! This is mostly going to be a picture entry, but I do want to write a little bit.

Last Sunday, November 26, Christina and I ventured to the Academy of Natural Sciences for their Wild Wizarding Weekend. Christina had never been to the Academy before and I wanted to bring her. We enjoyed ourselves and it was a nice day out.
