Oh the weather outside is frightful
But ice skating still sounds delightful! Yes, Memphis is finally experiencing some winter weather. This morning as I was laying in bed trying to convince myself to get up, I looked at the weather report on my phone. The current weather reading at 7:45 was 15 degrees. Not such a good motivating factor for getting out of bed. However, I did. Because the grad school is going ice skating tonight! I can't remember the last time I went ice skating. Hopefully I don't fall. But if I do oh well! It will be fun! I love this time of year!!
On a different note, I just have to say that I was very impressed with the Memphis Ballet's production of The Nutcracker this past Friday. After seeing the Oregon Ballet Theater perform it for many, many years I had very high expectations. And little Memphis did a very nice job. I think my favorite was the Arabian dancers. The female was absolutely gorgeous. I have no idea how she moved the way she did, but it was amazing. And an obvious close second was the sugar plum fairy. Simply beautiful! Did I mention I was sitting pretty much center stage and like 5 rows back (Thank you Anna Pressler!). I loved being able to actually watch the dancers feet. Ah! Loved it!!!
