Drizzle

At the start of the week it looked like we were going to have a good week of sun but I guess that was too much to hope for as it’s raining again. Only suitable for ducks as they “preen” themselves by the water. There are a lot of cool events coming up that I’m interested in going to. All are outside which means they are dependant on the weather. There is a Food Festival the day of my birthday (how convenient is that!) and so far it looks like it’s going to be sunny. I am going out for lunch but the great thing about food festivals is they have smaller plates so you can enjoy different stations. I live one block away from Eldon House which is putting on a carnival for Canada Day. Unfortunately every year since I’ve moved here it’s been about 40 degrees celcius which is too hot for me to be sitting outside. According to the weather channel we are expected to have a cooler summer so I just have to pray for sun! We have lots of events happening in my city and the great thing is most of them are free. Music, arts and of course lots and lots of food!
I think we all are sick of the rain. A lady in my building goes out for a jog regularly and she had to come back in because it was raining. My neighbour hasn’t gotten all of her plants in and her husband has already had to cut the grass a few times. I’ve walked to the market in the rain because if I waited for a sunny day I would be out of luck. Strawberries are here…the taste of summer.
I’m going away for a few days in July and I’m hoping for good weather because I would like to go to the Royal Botanical Gardens. Last year I was lucky and it rained the day I was coming home. I sat outside and read the paper in the morning or read a book in the afternoon. It was lovely.
There are benefits to living in an apartment when it rains. I don’t have to cut the grass. I don’t have to worry about tracking mud through the kitchen. And the biggest plus I never have to worry about power going off in a storm. It’s all about finding the silver lining.
