On my birthday we were in the middle for the Plague. OK it was not the plague but it was the worst cold/flu/infection either of us has had in a long time. So we decided to postpone my birthday until we could at least eat the cake.
So this Saturday we celebrated my birthday. It was a wonderful day. We went down town to the river. This beautiful, wonderful city of ours makes a ice rink every year in the park by the river. Imagine this, skating beside the river, surrounded by beautiful buildings, trees and lightly falling snow. Laughter and music fills the air. If we get cold we can go into the warming hut where a wood stove is ablaze. It is probably the most romantic place on earth. And it is free. Yes, free, even the skate rentals. What a wonderful city.
