I am delighted to report the London received it’s first
delivery downpour of snow last night.
For those of you who didn’t know, London was on a rain watch from Monday night until Wednesday night. I wasn’t kidding when I said it rains a lot at Western. Thankfully, temperatures decreased enough that the rain turned to snow and Brescia literally became white. Ok.. the white didn’t last AS LONG as I had hoped but it did stay for a couple of hours.
I wish I had captured a better picture but I was on my way to an 8:30 chemistry class. A snow storm + 8:30 + Chemistry = A dedicated student. I seriously think there were only 40 of us in our normally full (700 people) lecture hall. Thank goodness for my heavy duty winter coat and my new boots ! (Ok I may be exaggerating slightly, especially considering the winters London gets, but come on, it WAS cold! A tree also fell down!
In spirit of the winter season, I thought it was appropriate to post a few pictures of my door decorations. As a fun activity on the weekend (I was fortunate enough to go home), I painted a christmas tree on brown paper (Environmentally friendly) and made a paper chain. The tree was based on a picture from a Chatelaine Magazine my mom received.
What do you think? Spirited enough? There are lots of other great door decorations here at Ursuline hall. For example…
I encourage each and every one of you to decorate your house/room/apartment/locker in some way shape or form. If you don’t celebrate christmas, why not decorate it with a winter theme? It’s definitely a great activity to de-stress!
