Ice Skating (read: Watching) at the Natural History Museum

Last night our small group from church went to the Natural History Museum in South Kensington for ice skating! It was finally a cold enough night to wear a hat and gloves and I was soaking it up. I love the cold weather and it really hasn't gotten below 45 degrees here yet. I'm hoping that is going to change because I really love the feeling of frozen hands, wind-blown cheeks, and numb toes. Okay, so not ALL the time..but hey, can't a girl get a least two weeks of freezing-ness? It is London after all, c'mon Mother Nature.
So the ice skating was fun to watch and no one took any big spills (although not for lack of trying). The lights were beautiful and it was a perfect way to end the day. I'm so glad we've met such great people at church and that we're finally having a bit of real winter weather!

We turn in our second of three papers in our last class tomorrow and I'm going to be so very happy to be done with class. Only 17 days 'til home and I've got so much to do before then! Christmas shopping, more sightseeing, final paper writing, etc.. I wish I had a little elf to help me do it all!
(Ahem, Carly? Kate?? Anyone??)

Cheers y'all, Lisa


  1. Who knew that hat could be so versatile? Love it.

  2. I can't believe it's not that cold there yet! If it makes you feel better, the high is 72 in Alabama today ...
