Time for a nap

Life is tiring when you have a metabolism faster than a Japanese commuter train or cars on a German Autobahn...... Now if only my metabolism was that fast... I could live off total junk and not worry a bit.

Its getting decidedly cold here, colder than I've experienced in the last couple of pampered years living in Toronto. Last time I was out when it was this cold was the last Winter Camping Trip to Fundy Park. That was cold enough for me to spend quantity time hanging out in the heated bathroom building to warm up. In spite of years of outdoor activity in the winter, even in somewhere as cold as Thunder Bay, I'm finding that my gear isn't warm enough for the same temperatures up here. I'm okay for walking around town - but I wouldn't want to be in a situation where I was out for a long time. We still haven't had our winter boots shipped - I'm not sure what i s up with that since we ordered them Sept. 3rd... some kind of weather crisis so I've been told. I'm going to have to see if I can get a pair somewhere else. I mean - I understand not having boots in stock in August, but by November they should be out on the shelves. And I do understand that it is still warm for winter here..... and we haven't had any nasty winds or blizzards yet. I'm sure I'll toughen up some.

In other news, we are hosting a soccer tournament here this weekend and the students are decidedly excited about it. I'm kind of looking forward to watching some soccer. Our students are pretty good players. :D
