For the past seven years, one of the social events that [livejournal.com profile] patgreene and I have hosted has been an annual ice skating party, typically held on a Sunday late afternoon in winter after the holiday rush is over. We like the idea because Kevin and I are active skaters and most of the rest of our household skates, and because we don't have to clean the house beforehand ;-). Typically we have covered the admissions and skate rentals for attendees who RSVP in advance.

This will be a kid-friendly event at the outdoor rink at the Winter Lodge in Palo Alto. This year, we're going on Sunday, February 22, from 3-5pm. We'll bring cocoa and [livejournal.com profile] patgreene's brownies. Anyone care to join us? See http://www.winterlodge.com for directions.

Skating lessons last night followed two roundtrips earlier (to drop off and pick up K.)... I was joined in the former by [personal profile] tenacious_snail. We've been working hard to try to rebuild that relationship, lately, with some successes. Although after a pretty intense last 5 days, we're now headed into 10 days with much less contact (quality and quantity), so that may be a challenge. But it will mean I'll be more available for [profile] patgreene, who deserves and needs more support right now (job stuff).

Anyway, we started with spreadeagles (skates pointed in opposite directions, like a split on ice), which are painful for me. I need to be more limber. ;) OTOH, I did well in half-lutz jumps... almost managed a change-edge spiral... and then worked hard on full-rotation flip jumps.

And yesterday morning I invited [personal profile] cyan_blue to join me as a science fair judge at a south San Jose elementary school. I always enjoy it... as well as giving classroom talks on geology or planetary science.
