Michele's house

I noticed that Michele Sereda's house on 2000 block Pasqua is now for sale. Great 100 year old place. Mo did a lot of work on the floors and kitchen. It deserves a good owner.

Christmas shopping begins

Started shopping in a fairly low key way, at mom's church bazaar, at the Magpie's sample and sale, and at the Dr. Coffee where they had a number of vendors with interesting wares. So far I have only bought a couple of things from actual people as my computer is doing most of my buying for me.

Lunch with grad students

As the term winds to a close, I took my grad class (Xincheng and Ella) for lunch at the club. I think we had a pretty good term. Every group class with grad students is completely different from the last and I always feel like we should start again when we get to the end (if I knew then what I know now sort of thing) but this term had some break throughs in creativity and some fantastic conversations. Glad to have been able to spend my Fridays with them.

Sales along 13th Avenue

Classes are winding down. Paul was off to a concert so we did a bit of walking along the evening sales on 13th. Paper Umbrella is staying open all night. We had a nice conversation with Carla Beck, who opened her office for hot chocolate and cookies. She offered to help William with his commentary/response to news stories. Very nice.

Catching up on paperwork with William

For the third day in a row William has had hours of homework to plow through. I took the tv-off-time to catch up on updating my cv (required for January every year, so I'm ahead of the game). I created a lot of new work this year but much of it doesn't fit into my existing categories. I did add 9 new titles to my filmmography for 2016. I managed to exhibit all but one of them, "The End of Another Day", which will realistically only make sense if shown in Regina, but I've not found a good opportunity to show it yet.
"The End of Another Day (a Wheat Soup story)"

Sylvie at the vet

Snowed today, probably will be the real beginning to winter as the weather doesn't suggest another melt right away. My cold isn't much better so Margaret dropped me at the office and ran all the errands on her own. She took Sylvie (our cat) to the vet. It seems that she has infections in her ear which require 3 different medications.

struggling with a cold

Worked from home most of Monday, struggling with a cold. I wanted to start shooting a new film but my energy wasn't there. I needed to clear a bunch of regular work from my slate first and only made minor progress.
