So much to do….so little time

The past few weeks have been frantic!   School has been insane (so much to do….) with Remembrance Day assembly, reports and interviews.  Thankfully, this week has been more settled and I have even got some teaching done. I am now also starting to turn my thoughts to home and am beginning to write a list of things to do before I leave. I can’t believe it was a whole year ago that I was writing another list to come over here.

I think Autumn is my favourite time of the year here but all I can say is thanks Matt!!!! The leaves have been falling at a rate of a thousand per second (ok not quite true…. More like a million per second LOL) . He has been raking them up and stashing them in brown garden bags. Some houses have 10 or more of these bags out on rubbish pick up day. Wish I had thought of selling these bags as I would have made a fortune. The city of Brantford composts these and uses them on their gardens . The drop is finally slowing, just in time for the snow which covers them anyway.

Speaking of snow…. First snow of the season arrived! Just a flurry really, but enough to get me excited.  (not so Matt). The frosty clear mornings are also producing some beautiful sunrises. The winter coat , scarves and hat are once again out of the closet . My brain is again working overtime checking that I have all these items plus my indoor shoes plus my outdoor shoes plus my gym shoes…… how do the children keep track of it all? Oh that’s right they have a mum helping them. Matt and I have put in a special order for more snow before we leave which the Canadians here think is hilarious (and ridiculous) as they dread it each year.  I am going to do my best to have Matt make a snow angel before we leave!
