I spent a productive day mostly marking and trying not to get too grouchy about students who write "reports" that read like something out of grade 10 rather than first year college. Only one more week of classes, then a Break!!! Yay. It's been a very good term, though; I shouldn't complain. I've enjoyed my face-to-face classes very much, and the onlines were okay. Next term I have a new online course and a first year lit that I haven't taught for about 4 years and my 2nd year lit online course that I somehow muddled through last Winter in the aftermath of my mother's death. Only two real preps, though, which makes a nice change, even though one of them involves building an online course as I go along!

My neighbours-at-the-bottom are putting up Christmas lights on their house. It's too early, I think. But then, yesterday I saw someone with a TREE in the window. That's unbelievably too early for me. I shall put mine up about a week before Christmas, I think, and I don't think I shall have outside lights. I may try to find a nice wreath for the front door. It feels odd - a little sad, but not entirely - to be pleasing myself completely.

We still haven't entirely emerged from snow cover. Walking is tiresome, and I have to be careful as I don't want to break my new hip. But I've actually managed very well, and my new Blundstone boots have been sovereign.

Traditionally, we've tried to put our lights up around Dec. 1st, or in the first week. That's when most people seem to. The ones that have them up in November worry me a little. The tree usually goes up midway through the month, maybe as early as the 10th.

Those dates, though, are slowly getting pushed back. I guess since we're not kids anymore, it's not as big a deal as it once was :) But I still like Christmas, and I can't help but get a little excited when Christmas lights start popping up. I wish we had Christmas lights up year-round. So much prettier than drab houses in the dark. :)
