So much rain ! So much humidity ! So much heat !
'Bout the only ones really enjoying this weather are the weeds !
Today I had enjoyed happy memories of a bright, snowy, cold day from last winter !
I must be mad ! Or more Canadian than I realized !
|,,,,,ahhhh, I feel better already !|
It's been a very busy last few days starting with a 4 hr. volunteer-sit, Sunday, at the Harris Collective Gallery while Art-In-The-Yard went on outside at The Elora Centre For The Arts. A goodly battle for attention ensued between the artists and Mother Nature. If there wasn't a drenching, 10 minute downpour - there was a sweltering blast of sun ... and no one was dry, either way !
I, and my grandaughter, were pleasantly comfortable inside sitting in the oscillating fan's path.
|She read and I attempted to put some more |
character to a quick sketch I had done last week
|wet, wetter and more wetter ;)|
|you can see the wet ... but visitors didn't seem to mind ... or|
they enjoyed the wetness as being cooled off
|between downpours, the air was soggy|
That same day, my lovely, 82yr. old aunt and uncle (in the company of their 2 sons) came from Virginia, USA (a road trip) to Canada to visit Canadian nieces and nephews ... she says, ' probably for the last time'! I can only hope to have her stamina when I'm 82 !
Yesterday they came for a light lunch at my house, met the gr., and gr.gr. nieces and nephews on my side and then we (hubby & I) were invited out for dinner with them ... again, between downpours.
We took them to Canada's equivalent to Dunkin' Donuts - Tim Horton's, after dinner and more talk. Not enough 'catching up can be accomplished in a day :(
It was really so nice to meet these cousins again as grown men ... how intelligent (between them, their father and their paternal uncle, they are all PhD'ers), friendly and open, they were. Can I say 'lovely' again ?
And today ... well, wet, rainy, wetter but ever so slightly cooler ... maybe sleeping will be better tonight ... and maybe I won't be woken by thunderstorms. I read once that Ontario has the most thunderstorms of all the provinces.
Oh ... almost forgot ... I have 2 pages left of my tiny journal to fill in ! Thank goodness it sits right here or I would have forgotten to make entries ... not difficult and actually, I find that I mention stuff that I would otherwise have forgotten tomorrow ... so a very good exercise for this old brain !
Stay dry out there !
