Friday Gratitudes

1. It's Friday.

2. The tax department finally sent me an explanation of my property tax refund four weeks after the event. If I understand them correctly which I may not (see 1, above) they have cancelled the tax increase for this year, not merely deferred it until I sell my house. I suppose this is good news, in that they might do the same again next year. Am still not clear if I'm still paying the increase every year and getting it back, or if they'll adjust the tax bills.

3. Last night was a blue, mild, early spring-like evening. Stars shone, air smelled of damp ground. Very like March of 1986, that happy interlude on Brunswick Ave. Suddenly realized that the reason I like my side bedroom is that it reminds me of my bedroom there, which was smaller but squarer, and also a combination of white and maple.

4. Snow flurries and snow squalls forecast for Sunday. I have nothing planned for that day and need not go out to battle the Santa Claus parade crowds.

5. The construction around the Bathurst Station was them doing an homage to Honest Ed's before it closes at the end of the year.
