Out in the snow (briefly)
We got about 2 inches (5.1 cm) of snow last night and this morning, and a bit more is expected this afternoon as I write this. I went out this morning with the snow blower to remove snow from the driveway. It took a while to start and warm up the machine (it had not been used since last winter), but once up and running, it did its job. I took some photos of the yards with my cellphone. Enjoy!
This weather may force postponement of the IPMS Gateway business meeting, when I am supposed to hand off the Secretary's duties to my successor. We'll see about that.
I refereed soccer last Thursday night and Saturday afternoon, and futsal Sunday night. Games went well. Nearing the end of the winter seasons in both soccer and futsal.
I also looked at an option of getting certified as a school teacher, in case I can't find work in my chosen fields (editing and PR). I got info from the American Board for Certification of Teacher Excellence (ABCTE), which has an online study course for this subject. I may go in this direction, once I get more info about this program, its success rate, and some advise from friends and people in teaching on this course. You're welcome to add your two cents to this discussion.
While I'm out looking, I am thinking about finding part time interim work. My dad suggested I look at being a courier; there are some openings for that locally.
That's it for now. Talk to you soon.
