The humidity of course. Hopefully a thunderstorm in the forecast for later today will bring some relief, but the long term prediction shows more if it right until Friday..and all I can say is “Yuck”!
A beautiful day yesterday for Canada Day – our 144th birthday. While I didn’t get out to see the fireworks, I could sure hear them and am glad that folks who used the day as time to be outside with family and friends had such a gorgeous day for it.
Paid a quick visit to Chapters today; have had a gift certificate in my wallet for a while so decided to start a new collection. Harlan Coben. I have a couple of his books that have been lent me, with extremely high praise I might add, and so I decided that I would look for his first book (Play Dead) and read it as a starter. He has written quite a few and so I like to get a sense of the writer from the beginning of his works when possible. Once I finish with Stieg Larsson, Harlan Coben will be next. Maybe even before the weekend ends. After all with such uncomfortable temperatures, I do believe the most strenuous exercise should be turning pages of a book J - preferably in a lawn chair under a shade tree!
While at Chapters I also signed up for their new points program and received my free “Plum Rewards” card. That’s a rewards program I can appreciate!
The countdown is now on for Pam; at the end of this month she bids adieu to the 9 – 5 working life. Dare I admit to a certain amount of envy? Well unless a lottery ticket finally pays off, I’ll have to continue the work day routine for some time yet.
I want to wish our American followers a happy July 4th as well! And hope that you enjoy a safe and happy long weekend with family and friends as we have been doing here north of the border.
