Storm on the Horizon?
The photo was taken at Bow Lake in Banff national park. It looks so warm and summery.... I'll try and get more current pictures up soon. I'm going to somehow try to balance my life a bit better between work and everything else... this is a long term battle I'm sure.. but well worth winning in the long run.

JASS in a Blizzard
There is lots on the go, but most of it would rate as terribly boring. My apartment looks like a bookshelf exploded around my desk - as stacks of science books are arranged in order of most recently perused to least - I should probably be tidying and doing dishes rather than blogging or exercising or making salad for supper/tomorrow's lunch or I should be writing more thesis or planning lessons... and now you understand why I've been neglecting my blog.... because there are just so many things to do.
My current challange to find a way to improve my boot up speed in the morning. I'm starting by placing socks and a warm sweater beside the bed so that getting out isn't so hard and I'm limiting computer use to checking my email and the weather. It seems to be working a bit - I'll just have to see how it goes. I'm not sure how I got everything done that I did last year and managed to get out the door an hour earlier... I washed the dishes and cooked a real breakfast nearly everyday - I suspect that I'm getting sucked into reading the news for longer than I think. Sigh.. no more news for me. The next 2-3 weeks are super busy - although I might be able to post a few from Iqaluit. I'm attending a workshop there on new program materials. I'm sure I'll be busy the whole time I'm there, but hopefully I'll be able to get a few pictures.
Beyond that there isn't much to say. I'm almost done the second yellow, red and orange sock and then I have a few projects to do. I think the first is going to be some little socks and mitts or maybe a little hat. I also need to knit myself mitts to replace the ones I lost last year on the way back from Repulse.
So... I guess that means I should get back to work... At some point I need to update the links on my blog to include Kennie and Darcy's new blogs. At some point.
