Post-Christmas Vacation

Category: Updates :: Permalink

After all the busy-ness of Christmas and New Year’s and the AAPC conference, I’m finally taking a short vacation. I don’t have any big plans. I’m spending time at home with my parents, doing some reading, visiting a few friends, doing some more reading…. I arrived here in Red Deer last night. Amazing! They have snow. In Lethbridge, there’s snow, too, but only in very shaded spots. The rest is just dry and brown.

My sister came out to Red Deer from Winnipeg for Christmas and left my Christmas gift here with my parents: Seamus Heaney’s translation of Beowulf.

Seamus Heaney's translation of Beowulf! 

Heaney is one of my favourite poets. In fact, I’d checked out the poetry section in Chapters on my way here, and thought about picking up a copy of that very book. Good thing I didn’t! Thanks, Charlene!
