When I move I’m flailing now

Spent some time on the yard again last night, but only managed to do the edging around one tree.

Afterwards, though, Kamelot and I headed down to Britannia beach, she to do some skateboarding, while I broke in my new inline skates and freshly road-tipped poles. I was surprised to discover that I don’t suck — the last time I rollerbladed (something over 10 years ago), I wasn’t that great at it. Apparently, better skates and all the training and practice on ice skates and skate-skis over the last couple of winters has made a big difference. I don’t think I’m quite ready to do any racing, but I think some degree of frequency out on the paths is in order.

Now, if I can only figure out how to stop before the Grabber ends up picking more gravel outta my shoulder… :-)

  1. Edging around the tree? Why bother? Don’t you just want a patch of dead grass under your tree like we do? :D

  2. I’d like to mention that I also didn’t suck at skateboarding. Apparently if you keep doing something over and over eventually you get better at it.

  3. Imagine that… :-)
