Ice Cream

I have made ice cream. Tonight, as I was pumping iron, I realized I still had a wee bit of strength in me and that I could pick up some ingredients on the way home. I hobbled in to the Metro on Somerled and chose some prime maple syrup, some walnuts, and a couple (thinking … [Read more…]

blogger.com

Kevin animatedly convinced about getting my blog powered by blogger.com. I am impressed by it. Much less work and far more reward by me. He wasn’t necessarily trying to convince me, but he had that wild look in his eye meaning, this is one world shattering institution that I shouldn’t miss out on. So, I’ve … [Read more…]

United Nations

I gave a challenging but fair exam to my grade 9s this morning. They are a great bunch of kids. The student council president, Joe, calls our school the United Nations. In grade 9 alone I have students representing Guatemala, El Salvador, Panama, Trinidad, Haiti, Ghana, United States, Iraq, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Korea, Sri Lanka, … [Read more…]

I entered my first race this morning. I ran 5 km in 23:42 minutes. This is in preparation for a marathon in September. I haven’t run for a week previous to this race. The best part about running is all the time to think. Avoiding the fraction game (distance / time) is definitely my weakness. … [Read more…]

Thumb bash

I watched The Exorcist for the first time last night. Interesting career possibilities. It wasn’t as suspenseful as Psycho which I watched for the first time on the weekend. Amber bashed her thumb in the car door quite efficiently on the way to a soccer game on Sunday. I’m trying to convince her to lance … [Read more…]

Ester Buck is sick

Just six months until The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King Extended Edition DVD is released. Patience precious. Our car is in the garage. The ache of a broken car. I remember stopping at a gas station in Red Deer with my first car just after registering it. I was driving it … [Read more…]
