I don't know what is with the weather here but after a snowstorm that cancelled school last week the temperature shot up to 27 C (82 F) all the snow melted in 1 day and I found myself outside reading....and I got a sunburn. What a crazy March. Let's talk about the "Hunger Games"...I admit I hadn't even heard of it until this month...and I was skeptical...it didn't sound like a book I would like. A friend from book club lent me her copy...yeah..I was hooked on page 14.

|Wednesday I went to the NB College of Craft and Design to give a workshop. I was very nervous but it was fine. The only problem I had was that I prepared a slideshow and put it on a memory stick and just to be safe I brought my laptop as well (I didn't want to be the old lady that can't handle technology)...I felt confident. When we got to the lecture room there was a Smart board (yikes) and no way to connect my laptop to it....so I had to use the college's Mac (sadly...like the ads on tv, I'm a PC...not a Mac) but with the help of one of the students I got it operational. I now will have to have a bit more patience with my mother when she calls me (constantly) with computer questions.|
I had such a great day at the college, it is in the historic part of downtown in a beautiful old brick building and part of the classrooms and library are in this building:
