This month has been a month of heaping mountains of snow and electronics that don’t like me, and many early mornings.
First it was my cellphone battery, then last Wednesday my laptop (that I have only had about a year) went blank. I had to get a brand new hard drive (thankfully Apple Care covers these things, I will never buy an Apple product without it!).
The weather last Sunday was lovely, then Monday morning snow flew out of the sky and covered everything in yet another layer of cold, white fluff. I cannot wait for this winter to be over, I am tired and sluggish!
On a happier note, I bought Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo and It Stars With Food by Melissa and Dallas Hartwig. I also watched 3 documentaries: Food Inc., Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, and Hungry for Change. It has made me change my mind and renew my vow to eat clean, whole foods. When I did groceries yesterday I thought about each thing I purchased. As consumers it is by our purchases that we vote in grocery stores, and now I feel less powerless. I would love to be able to buy more free, straight from the farm foods, but it is a little hard when we have weather like we do in Canada.
Last week teaching with the Kinders, technically only 3.5 days because Friday is a PA day and we have a half day because of our meetings on Wednesdays. I will be sad to leave them, but am excited to be working with the district ESL teacher for 3 weeks.
