My day has been consumed with working on a fellowship proposal; I have learned a great deal in the process, and written not nearly enough. I have pretty pictures to scan in and show you, but no time to do it just now. Given the nature of my week, it would not surprise me if I have a longer list of topics about which I would like to write about at the end of the week than I do already. Happily, they are all topics I look forward to writing about.

Elsewhen in my life, I have watched many Red Dwarf episodes I'd not previously seen, eaten an amazing avocado, corn, tomato, and mayonnaise salad prepared by saffronjan, and signed up for a brunch class with theengineer (bringing to three the number of cooking classes for which I am enrolled, all of which will be in late February or early March). The weather was warm by recent standards, bordering on freezing, which prompted a great many sheets of ice to slide like time-lapse glaciers off of the roofs of nearby houses over the course of the day.

The most astonishing moment of my day was a 10 am delivery of a package by Canada Post. Canada Post never delivers on weekends, yet today they brought me what might be the last part of Christmas. (It's been Christmas all week here, thanks to a steady trickle of gifts and packages!)
