Coffee, Quiche and matching socks

Actually, I should refer to the sock in the singular.. and the fact that the sock and my supper match is a total coincidence.. the sock has been in the works for a while, but since one must talk to their mom on the phone, I was able to multitask and finally finish this puppy. The fit is snugger than my last pair, but I think when it stretches it'll be perfect and they are they look warm... being knit in the colours of exuberance and happiness... and truely.. happiness is a warm pair of wool socks :D, a hot mug of coffee (unadulterated by dairy products or sucrose) and apparently... a slice of crustless broccoli quiche :D

Can I have seconds?

The verdict is in..... this is delicious and I'd totally even serve it guests....

Okay.. admittedly I did serve the very bad barely-cabbage-tomato soup gone very wrong to guests, but only becuase they asked.... I didn't intend to feed it to non-residents and I did warn them about the illconsidered use of bay leaf crumbs.... and one of them might have had seconds...

My stint as foods instructor has inspired me to try some new recipes at home.... so far the pictures look good... I'll have to try it to find out if its as good as it looks.... I'll report shortly.

Rankin and New Ideas

I'm lucky to be participating in the pilotting of the new Grade 11 science cirriculum (Tariuq 11). I spent 3 days in Rankin Inlet learning about it and working with the pilot group to figure out what we need to do to pilot it well. I'm looking forward to trying it out next week.

The photo is the Rankin Inukshuk at dusk.

While I was away, winter came to the north, likely to stay. We've had our first snow and its been cold, windy and rainy for most of the last week. Some beautiful skies to make me wish I had my camera with me and some nice white caps on the lake. The barges have been busy making the most of the last of the shipping season. The days of shipping are numbered as we begin having regular sub-zero temps.

The days are racing by too... I can't believe we are already into October.... report cards in just 2 weeks.

The Terry Fox Run and Literacy week have passed and now we are headed for halloween.

Anywho... I guess the last bits of excitement for me is the 3 boxes of food mail I recieved yesterday.... Yeah vegetables :D... but I'd best get back to work... oh and socks... I finally finished and photographed the rainbow ones and I've gotten a fair bit done one a heavy woolen pair.
