One of the reasons I wanted to make changes to my blog format was that I wanted to be able to show off share my photos. Well, some are good although most are just so so – like any amateur would take.

But they are more fun to take when there is a way to share them.

So if you scroll down till you see on my sidebar the title Click under photography, you will see one of my photos and can see others as you scroll through that photoblog of mine. I will try and upload a photo a day.

Maybe I should just go to bed

I guess this is just one of those weeks  that seems endless and terribly busy.  It’s Wednesday already so half the work week is gone.

Before I know it Christmas will be here and I am in no way ready for that big event.  It is a  big family event and it is good but for some reason it makes me feel tired this year.  I am very glad  that Rachelle is coming home for a few weeks.  I hope she will help  me make some goodies, decorate the tree and help make the tourtiere. 

I am on call this week too so maybe that is part of the busyness at work.  There have been a lot of emergencies added to our regular schedule.  Emergencies are always such an unknown.  There is always a certain amount of paperwork so if they are late at all, some of the appointment time is gone.  Then I have to figure out what their emergency is.  Sometimes it is not an emergency at all but some vague pain in the tooth stimulated their brains to equate any sort of discomfort with toothache and thus to the patient it is an emergency.  Therefore, being a diligent dentist with diligent staff, they are fit into the schedule – somewhere. 

Add to that a weekend  that had no breaks for me, a council meeting last night, trying to meet a deadline that I set for my next quiz in Greek in order to keep up and meet my goal of when I want to complete the course, too many late nights combined with waking up too often in the middle of the night or too early in the morning – and I am becoming so very tired. 

Oh, yeah, and I am trying to practice hard at the Christmas carols the orchestra is playing for our local Festival of Trees. 

I guess my tiredness is well earned. 


Maybe I should just go to bed.

Ready to Roll

I am thinking that this is about as much work as I am going to do on this site for a bit. The blogroll is up. I can post. New comments will actually show up. But other comments are there in the background lurking in secret. Just try clicking on the No Comments buttons and sometimes there will actually be comments.

Ready to roll. Till I get this silly notion in my head to try this on my own again.

Well, as you can see, I have changed some things around here.  I’ve switched over to WordPress as my blog hoster and somehow, in doing that, I have lost all my comments. 

Not quite sure what I did there.  So anyone know if there is a way to fix that?  Or does life just go on with new comments from here?

It seems that I have made the front page of the paper.  That’s right.  Me and not my usually newsworthy husband. 

Prince Albert Daily Herald – front page – Top Story

Not like I am bragging or anything.  This is more likely to get me in trouble with the people at my college who might see it as a form of advertising than to cause a rise to fame. 

Its a good story about a work that I have been involved with from its start-up here in PA and it tells the story of what we do pretty well.  It is a work I love to do. 

But when I told the reporter that I do this work because I like children and that I do this because it fits with how I practice and who I am, how on earth did this get translated into a  phrase like “affinity” for children?  Maybe it is just too big a word for me.

For Randall

and anyone else who wants to see what Prince Albert looks like in the dark of winter when we have had a bit of snow.

winter 2008 003

I did stop to take pictures as I walked last night but my camera has its limitations.  By 8pm it is very dark here now.  It is still very dark at 7:30 am when I go to work.  So welcome to the dark long nights of winter in Prince Albert. 

There is a set on Flikr that you can check every now and then.  I will add to it as the winter progresses.  Even some daylight pictures.

Winter is here it seems

I  went for a walk again tonight.  The snow has stopped falling leaving a couple of inches of pure white magic on everything.  Including the streets.  Of course it is more slippery and dangerous on the street than on the path.  And I was walking with my trusty winter grips on my shoes.

It was so quiet.  Really not cold – hardly at all. 

It seems as if winter is likely here to stay and it is time for snow to cover up the rather dowdy looking stripped bare trees. 

The snow tonight was beautiful and the temperature as well.  Perfect for walking. 

I do not look forward to the bitter cold days.  I know they will come.  But so will Spring in – only 6 months.  6 months – half the year.  Might as well make the best of winter.
