Hello Everyone –
Yes you are reading the title right “Don’t forget to Label the RainBoots” – Yes it is July 10th today! How is that we need to be reminded to Label the rainboots in the middle of summer? Is it the middle of summer – July the month of sitting on the beach soaking up the rays. We have waited all year for this. Well maybe we are soaking up all of the puddles…… Yesterday Toronto had the most rain ever recorded and the pictures of this town just an hour away from us where unbelievable. There where people literally jumping out of their cars to escape being swept away in the mass flooding. (Mississauga, ON this doesn’t happen so close to home, it is always somewhere else. Tonight we are on a severe thunderstorm watch.
Although the forecast was Rain most of the day, we did see some sunny skies today which was lovely! My garden is doing really well this year, my pumpkins are looking awesome, well there are no pumpkins yet, but some lovely flowers that are supposed to magically turn into a pumpkin. Every year I try to grow pumpkins and I did get a few last year)… I will post some photos this year and maybe write a little story about my pumpkin patch (well pumpkins in pots) and the “best ever pumpkins?” I planted some Giant Ones too (so excited). Last year my “Giant Pumpkin was about the size of an average pie pumpkin but I was still thrilled. I am thinking this year I might even have to borrow Mom’s recipe for crust and get baking some pumpkin pies, or maybe set up a road side stand and sell my pumpkins because I will have so many. Ok maybe I am getting a little ahead of myself, and lets not think about pumpkins just yet.
My son said Mommy “there is the sun!” – as if he had forgot what it looked like. Well we are Canadian (EH!), weather being the big topic of conversation at the Local Coffee shops while picking up our lattes and donuts. This coming weekend the weather prediction is 27 and SUNNY – WOOT, WOOT! I am running to the Beach, I’ll save you a spot if you buy the ice-cream. Enjoy those sunny skies and I hope that Mr. Sunshine will shine its rays for the “Best Summer Ever!” So go find a Beach, some shades and leave those rainboots at home.
I will leave you with this last thought on the weather thus far …………………………………….

And The Sun is Not Sunny.
