it is very very cold here. forecasted top of 8 degrees all week til thurs, when it will rise to 12 and 13 because it'll start raining again. this is what it looked like yesterday, waiting at the bustop to go shopping:
fall continues pretty (though ominious, as we're not even into winter yet). this is from the skytrain station:
so i have come to the conclusion that it is foolhardy to go outside after dark without hat, gloves and scarf, and i didn't bring nearly enough of the former, so i bought a nice hat. thus:
don't i look like a grownup? those are the gloves itchy's mother gave me, and they're *perfect*. if i wear my usual fingerless gloves my fingertips go all red and start losing feeling. it's really very cold. anyway, the hat is 100% wool and will keep the rain off. also it is purty. got it from a nice shop on commercial. my first piece of canadian clothing, very exciting.
still masses of work, but a lot of it is just reading, which is pleasant, and writing about picturebooks, which i always get a kick out of. (and marking, which i'll thank you not to mention)
