I have been sick. For a whole week now. And I am Not Happy about it.
Still. I’ve tried to make notes of small beauties throughout the week.
So, here I am. In bed with my laptop and a fever, finally updating the blog. Apologies for the delay.

With this change of season comes the inevitable return back to school. I see a lot of beauty in this because I have two amazing teaching jobs that bring me loads of joy. Being a professor at the University of Ottawa, lecturing in the same classrooms I learned theatre theory in is a great honor. On the flipside, I also get a huge amount of joy from teaching at Orleans Young Players Theatre School. I had my first day back recently and I felt more nervous than the kids. That anxiety went away the minute I sat down with 6 kids (ages 5 and 6) and worked on creating our own story. It involved lots of falling down, running and fixing things. We all physically re-enacted the story with great gusto, causing me to break out in a sweat trying to keep up with these little balls of energy. They are so beautiful sometimes.

This has absolutely nothing to do with autumn, but the video was posted on Facebook recently and I am a sucker for great dancing.

With the colder comes an urge to do more baking. I think it’s a real toss-up. I’m not sure what’s more beautiful: Fully-baked brownies, or being able to lick the brownie batter off the spoon?

Lil B, belly-laughing in her sleep. That is all.
Day 272 –
Waking up from a nap to find that your husband completely tidied up the once-chaotic basement… including re-labelling the rubbermaid containers. I’m a sucker for good organisation.
