    So yesterday my exercise was skating with Shawn and Nick!   Looked pretty great with elbow pads, my bike helmet and a loaner pair of hockey gloves.  Ice skating is hard!  Trying to hit a puck with a stick even harder!!  I couldn’t do both at the same time- it was either hit the puck or skate😉. BUT I didn’t fall- do no injuries!  Can’t wait to try it again.  Going to be 60 tomorrow but I vow to keep trying new things. Great day everyone!!

    Another beautiful day!  Spent fifteen minutes outside this morning following up on some phone calls - much better than being inside.  Think I'd like to move my desk outside
