ICE

By "ICE" I'm not referring to "ICE" (In Case of Emergency)* nor "Vanilla Ice"** but water frozen into the solid state. Why, you might ask? 'cause I went ice skating yesterday.

I haven't gone ice skating in, like, ages, since Ice Age, lol. But yesterday I squeezed my toes into my figure skates and did some jumps, death spirals and spins (I wish). My skates didn't feel comfortable in my feet, blades were rusty and toe picks hit the ice every once in a while. Somehow I managed to stay up on my feet and skate for quite some time, eh.

Today I had some quality time with Ukko, the boxer. We went ice walking (is that a proper word?). Any way, we were walking on ice @Lake Iidesjärvi. Ukko had brought his football with him so we played with it. Or he played with it.

* It was my mom who asked if I knew what "ICE" means? And I didn't. Now I know.
