When was the last time you went ice-skating?
If you don’t have children, chances are that it’s been a while. With children, it’s one of those magical things that has to be included in childhood memories!
When I was a little girl, my hometown lake often froze in winter, so we had the best time on a natural skating rink.
My father told me about his own childhood, when they didn’t even have skates. They would tie shoe brushes to their soles, and skid around the ice, more or less elegantly.
My older daughter is a passionate ice-skater, and it’s dreamy to watch her swirling and turning across the ice, like an ice-princess. My younger daughter stays close by my side, getting more and more courageous as she goes, all the while I enjoy holding her tiny, little hand.
Whether you’re a good skater or barely manage to stand on the ice, skating should be part of your memories. It’s good for your soul, and once you get the hang of it, it’s so much fun.
Inspired by this theme, the February Desktop Calendar should be a reminder of the skating season and its beauty. As usual, you can download it to your computer and set it as your desktop background, if you like. (See HERE for instructions.)
So, get dressed nice & warm, rent some skates and get on the ice again. Make memories for your children and yourself!
Have fun and be safe!
With Love, Monika
