Taught the second session of The Cheater's Guide to Cataloguing yesterday afternoon ... only three in the class this time, but that's likely down to the time of year. Third session is booked for February 23, which is public school teachers' professional development week in this province, so should have a full class for that one. Yesterday's three were all from Calgary Board of Education schools ... since once again not one of them had even seen Cataloguer's Toolbox before, it was another class full of "Wow!" and wonder and laughing (Cataloguer's Toolbox is the site I show first and is my handy little class evaluator ... if they haven't seen THAT before, then they haven't seen anything else I'm going to show them either ***GRIN***). This trio will definitely benefit ... CBE's central cataloguing office charges the individual school libraries $2.00 per book for anything that they send in for cataloguing ... knowing how to track down downloadable copy means those three can put that money towards more books for their individual libraries instead. :-)

No side trips to the import shop afterwards this time ... went straight home as we've got snow and ice and dropping temperatures, with predictions of a high of -28C (checking Environment Canada's site just now, they've revised it up to -22C, but Tuesday has a predicted high of -24C and a low of -29C slotted in now). Plus we've got tons (for us) of the white stuff, and, looking out my window, I can see more of it coming down ... those tiny, dehydrated flakes we get when the weather is working its way towards "too cold to snow" (yes, moderate-climate-dwellers, there IS such a thing)

So a good weekend to unlax in the warm, consume hot liquids, and attempt to make a dent in the viewing/reading stacks ... (and listen to music ... just realized I still haven't got 'round to listening to the Cowboy Celtic CD I purchased a couple of weeks ago!)
