Snowy and cold. Brr.
I woke up to a white world today when I looked out my window. Yuck. It had snowed a little overnight and was cold to boot. I had a good morning at home though. I watched the news, a documentary and read the paper. I took my shower and came back to the living room and watched a silly movie, Drillbit Taylor. It was basically My Bodyguard, but instead of just one kid it had 3 kids hiring the bodyguard. The bodyguard was played by Owen Taylor so he was a bit more comedic than Adam Baldwin. It wasn't a realistic film in any way, shape or form though.
At two I watched The Unit. I like the show, but sometimes I have problems with the violence and the whole army thing. I do like the way they tell the men's stories and the stories of their wives and girlfriends too.
At 4 I had to head over to work. Well, I didn't really HAVE to, but I wanted to be there before dark, which is around 5 pm. I went outside and decided to clear off our parking space for F. I was thinking to do a Brazilian on the area, but then realized that he'd never get the joke, and would think I was too lazy to clear the whole area. I put our shovel back in the building then set off. As I passed the bike shed, I noticed that my bike was on its side, so I stepped in to pick it up. Of course, there was one bike on top of it, so I pulled that one up first and put it further into the shelter so the wind wouldn't catch it. Then, I pulled mine up. As I did that, I somehow lost my balance and nearly went over onto another bike. I didn't fall, but I did catch my left ankle on the other bike. I'm sure I'll have a lovely bruise there soon. It really hurts. I swore a lot and then pulled the other bike up too. I limped off on my way.
The walking wasn't difficult and it wasn't snowing at the time, so it wasn't too bad. It was a bit windy, and the snow was freezing into ice, so I'm glad that I left home when I did. I made a brief stop into the convenience store, then after a bit got to the school. At the school I cleared off the front steps and then my parking place a little. I didn't do much as the snow was mostly frozen on the ground, but I did a bit.
The school was getting quite warm, which was nice. I did a bit of cleaning and setting up for tomorrow's classes, also a bit of setting up for my one today. When the student came we had a good class. I think he's getting the grammar, he just doesn't know it! His mum has asked me to work on spelling with him, so I'll be working on that soon. Honestly though, I think I need to work on reading with him too!
After class I did paperwork and then a little more sorting out of classes. Then I called F and he picked me up. I offered to make pasta for dinner, but he wanted to have soba. Sadly for him the restaurant was closed so we went to New York, New York instead. I had chicken, F had udon.
We came home and had a quiet evening, but we did watch Ugly Betty on the TV. I was trying to make a crossword puzzle with some of the software on the net, but a lot of it doesn't like Macs. Sigh. I found one I could use, if I was willing to pay $50. I'm sure if I did this everyday, it would be worth it, but I rarely make crossword puzzles, so I'm not biting. As F was going to take his bath I apologized to him for not really being with him tonight. I felt bad. I hardly talked to him at all.
Anyway, that was my day, more or less. It was quite a good one. I get to go to bed soon and in a few hours I can do it all again. Yay! Or not. Night.
