This was a bit of a boring week in that nothing terribly interesting happened. Friday was Remembrance Day/James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement anniversary. As a result Friday was a holiday and it was only a 4 day week at school.
On Friday I went in to school to try and get some work done. I had been coming down with a cold on Tuesday night so I didn't stay for too long on Friday since I was still pretty tired. There was a bit of a storm on Friday morning and Heather was worried that her Circus guest may not be able to get on the plane for Montreal. The storm dissipated for a while though and everyone got out no problem! Although I did find it quite humorous that the weather network said it was 3C and partly cloudy and then when I looked out my window it was friggin' snowing!
Anyway, I ended up going for a walk on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday it snowed too much and the dogs were hiding underneath the houses. On Sunday though it was much nicer out and I was joined by this happy little fellow:
While I was out I came across a traditional tent. Apparently people just set them up and leave them as they sometimes just go out and sleep in the tent on nice days.
Since I had so much time off I decided that I would do some baking as well :) I still had a bunch of wild blueberries left from when I first went picking.
Finally, I figured I would give everyone a snow update. It's been a little difficult to gauge exactly how much snow is on the ground since the winds blow it around so much. The least amount is probably 4-6 inches and the deepest is about 8-10 inches. I was a little tempted to build a snow dragon or something since we had all this wet snow, but I got too lazy and played Mass Effect 2 instead. Here is what the country side looks like now.
This week should be busy since we all have to get ready for report cards. Term 1 ends on November 23. It should also be interesting since Mark and Nancy will be away for meetings next week. Hopefully everything will run okay without them!
