It is going to be hot and humid this weekend.
I was speaking to a man this morning who is dreading the weekend weather. He said he can’t breath when the air is heavy and full.
I do feel badly for him. However, the main part of me is smiling broadly at the forecast that is sunny and gorgeous until next week.
Happy Birthday to You
Yesterday, July 1, was Canada’s birthday.
Our great nation turned 143 years old and the Queen was on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Ontario, the nation’s capital, to help celebrate it.
I like the royal family.
I know many Canadians think it’s time to sever our ties to England, but I like the history of it and say they should continue to be the head of our country.
And because yesterday was a holiday, many people are taking today off to have an extra-long long weekend.
For me, it made my commute in a breeze.
I heard some people are suggesting we start celebrating Canada Day on the first Monday of July regardless if it’s July 1 or not.
You don’t celebrate your birthday on a Friday or a Monday because you want more time off, you celebrate it the actually day of your birth.
I like having a day off mid-week. And any day you can take off in the summer is a great day.
Happy July 4
Happy Independence Day to anyone who celebrates it.
