Snow came and went today and I had mixed feelings about that. I’m enjoying the mild weather and I’m not keen to see it end. I just sat at the window watching it come down and part of me was like, ‘Meh’. Time to transition to ‘winter’ mode’. Another part of me wasn’t willing to throw in the towel so easily. Then the first part of me was saying to the second part of me, ‘Dude, you can’t control the weather. Let it go’.
It’s near a month that I’ve been living in Toronto. Still feels like I’m visiting. I read the Leader Post every morning and check out Rod Pedersen’s blog for news about the Riders. No part of me feels compelled to check out Toronto newspapers. I’ll be heading back home for the holidays and I’m making a list of the things I’ll want to be taking back with me. Home and people from home are on the brain as a result.
It’s been a little while since I wandered aimlessly. I’ve settled into a regular coffee shop (Urbana Coffee), which is just down Bay from the gym I regularly attend.
Does one attend a gym?
I put deposits down on 2012 Grey Cup tickets. Benji, Monica, Rodney and hopefully a handful of others from the Romanian Syndicate will be coming over for that as well. It’s the 100th anniversary of the game and it will be taking place in my new found city.
I’m also attending a film festival on Saturday night. I signed up for free tickets and hope to line up a film friend to come with me. In the meantime, I have a couple of projects to finish. I will appreciate the income and the clean slate that comes with a job well done. With those out of the way, I can return my focus to my writing career.
