The Winter Blues: Olympic Ice Skating Is A Great Distraction!

We are in the thick of winter now.
Today schools were closed,
dance studio lessons cancelled.
 
And I'm getting very tired of
the cold days stuck inside.
 
BUT, there is something
coming up that will help
pass the days:
 
THE WINTER OLYMPICS!
 
We did watch some of the
championships to
see who would be going to Sochi.

Amazing, amazing talent!
 
 
Today I'm linking up with BLOG SHOP
at How Sweet the Sound.
 
One of the items I am sharing
 from my shop there
is this fantastic piece of
Olympic Memorabilia:
 
 
 
 
Remember, there was no TV.
 



This was how fans collected information
and could keep the results and photos
all in a nicely made booklet.


 
Just look at that pose!
 
 
Enjoy your day...
Keep warm and keep busy
my East Coast readers!

That is an amazing book! It would be the perfect addition to someone who once skated or had a skating collection. I too enjoy watching the ice skating on the Olympics. Stay warm my friend!
hugs,

How timely a listing. We don't have cable - so prob. no Olympics for us. (Unless its on 1 of the few chanmels we get - will have to check...)

I'm loving the snow - sorry. Although the shoveling stinks. My only complaint is that if it's going to snow I want it to be a huge one, where we can't go anywhere and are tucked in home safe and sound.

I'm off to play catch-up.
