This past week we have had lots of fun making snowmen, throwing snowballs, making snow angels, eating snow, and diving into snow. The Canadians sure aren't impressed that it was so cold and snowy so early on, but we were pretty happy. We got the tail end of the snow storms in Buffalo that were all over the news, however our 20 centimetres or so of snow for the day didn't really compare to their 4 inches per HOUR!!
Last weekend I finally got around to checking out the downtown Farmers Market, which turned out to be really cute with lots of foods, crafts and jewellery. It was a good little place for souvenirs. We also took in the annual Guelph Santa Claus Parade, despite our feet almost dropping off due to standing in the cold for far to long, and my concerns I had developed frostbite because I couldn't feel half of each for foot for about an hour after coming inside. However the parade was great! And it was so cute watching all the kids bundled up in layers of clothing, barely able to move.
Exams start this week! And it is only 18 days until I get on a flight back to Australia. We had an international student break up on Friday night, and looking back at some of the photos of orientation it feels like a lifetime ago that we all arrived in Guelph. But at the same time I can't believe how quickly the time to go home has come around. Planning to get exams and the rest of assignments out of the way so we can just enjoy the rest of time in this beautiful country with each other!
I have uploaded some photos, sorry about the bad quality as they were taken on my phone.
