Winter is ending

Who would have ever thought that I'd be the least bit sad by that? Having gotten into cross-country skiing this season for the first time ever, I'm going to miss the ski season. Oh well, there's always next year to look forward to.

The unfortunate side-effect of warm weather (by which I mean temperatures in the 0-10°C range) is streets full of slush and a very dirty car. At least Edmonton recycles the tonnes of sand used every year to keep icy streets drivable. Here's hoping for the weather to get warm enough for cycling, and more importantly street clean enough to ride on!

My Israeli dance class at the Edmonton JCC is going fantastically well. We now have a strong base of regulars who come out every week. I'm really enjoying teaching the class which is a real learning experience for me as I learn how to teach dance for the first time. Along with tango classes with Ilana, and practices for Aviv Dancers (an Israeli dance performance group) this means I'm dancing at least three nights a week.
