Wednesday - Cold with snow.

F woke me up this morning to say that there was a lot of snow outside. I got up and got dressed in case he wanted me to go out and help, but he seemed to make out of the parking lot without my help.

I went back to bed and slept a bit longer.

When I got up I watched the news and then turned over and watched the end of the fabulous It Happened One Night. Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert were amazing together. The dialogue in that movie just crackles along. Aaron Sorkin could have written it!

I had a busy day at home. I changed the bottom sheet on our bed and spun the mattress around for good measure. I did a couple of loads of laundry and I made soup. The latter took quite a while and I had to stand for most of it.

In the afternoon I wrote a condolence letter to my former teacher in Scotland. She lost her husband before Christmas and I only found out after I came back from Canada.

I ran off to the post office to mail the letter and then on the way back I shovelled some snow from F’s parking space.

F came home a bit later and after he changed we went out. We drove to my school and I set the heater for tomorrow. While I did that, F did a bit of work on my space for me. We came home via the grocery store to pick up some milk and a few other things.

At home I served dinner. I toasted some bread and served the soup. It was good, but not quite as good as last time I made it. This time I didn’t precook the veggies and I think it made a difference. Oh well, live and learn.

F did the dishes and then we watched The Recruit. It was a so-so film with Al Pacino and Colin Farrell. I saw the plot twist a mile away.

We’re now watching the finale of So You Think You Can Dance. It is good, but so far they haven’t done my favourite routine of the year. They might not of course!

And that was my day. It was okay really. Tomorrow I’m back to work. I really hope that I can walk properly. My feet are so sore. I think it might be the rubber boots with no support. Sigh. Got to go. Night!

Welcome back to the grind eh?? Always a killer, but that's good that you got to go home and have some off time before starting up again. Good luck!

Thanks...but I've been back at work since Saturday! I don't have classes every day unfortunately, so if you've missed a blog entry you might not know.

I just wish it would stop snowing. It makes going to work so miserable!
