Summer .... is BACK ... its 26C feels like 33C and the hoomidity is 65% so its not so bad out there and to make it even better there is a lovely breeze in that bright blue sky with a gazillion fluffy white clouds. A poifect day!


I am doing nothing on this first day of September. I still can't get over that its September. What a screwed up year!


I would have been on Vacation last month but covid kicked that plan to the curb .... I don't mind. I can sit home drink something icy cold or eat a beersicle and pretend I'm in Quebec at a chalet or cottage. Pretend .... beersicles help you pretend realllllly realllly good!

What the???????

14C feels like 14C NOT .... hooooooooooomidity is 94%. What a weird morning today. It rained for 5 minutes yesterday morning and then gave me gray skys and clouds all day with high humidity and misery in my joints and bones. YUCK



Its overcast and gray sky's now so more rain is due today ... I will deal with it. I will crank the air conditioning and try to ignore the hoooooooomidity that will increase. Dang.

17C feels like 17C .... hooooomidity at 59% ... its sunny-ish, a few overcast clouds but no rain predicted. There is a blue sky under all the white and overcast clouds so I will hope we have another perfect day. I'm off to buy something to throw on the barby this evening for dinner and top up the brew supply ... its a long weekend here in the city so I must be prepared.


ENJOY yer weather hopefully its lovely where you are as well.

16C feels like 16C .... hoooooooooooooooooooooooooooomidity at 82% .... I am sweaty. YUCK ... well some of the kids are back to school today. YAY because they will be going to bed earlier now and not screaming in the yard next to mine. NAY because of Covid and the scare of kids getting ill.



I am hoping all will be okay.

Its a gray ugly hoooooooooomid day with rain forecast-ed for most of the day and night. I don't care ... I'll be workin from home as usual. With my never ending supply of beersicles and dark coffee mug that holds a full bottle of beer nicely .... nobody knows a thing while we chat online with head office. Until I burp and the bird falls over from the fumes.

17C feels like 17C ... which is a lie because the HOOOOOOOOOMIDITY is 100% ..... its foggy here and gray and ugly and I expect rain but it may not happen. In the meantime its muggy and MEH.


Autumn is here .... trees are changing color way too fast for my liking but I can't do anything about that. I can only whine and nag. I'm good at that!

18C feels like 18C ... or less and the hoooooooooooooooooomidity is 94% .... its been oddly foggy as all heck and I expect Jack da Ripper to strike soon as its pea soup thick english type fog around here lately. It's soggy hoooooomid because of this and I have enjoyed the coldness of it as I opened all the windows and patio/deck doors and let the cool seep in the house.


It's fresh .... and damn creepy! I LIKE IT!

14C ... feels like 13C or LESS ... its cold and I like it. The relative hooooooooooomidity is in the 80% area and its drippy sweaty yucky here. Also ... its GRAY DARK AND DEPRESSING with more fog and clouds and no sun like FOREVER. It's a little depressing lately with the darkness during the day and no rain to show for it. It's also MIDGES season and I am fair game so they are swarming me and my home and making meals of me like I'm a lovely buffet despite Buffets being canceled due to COVID.


So .... here I sit in the hooooooomidity of graydom wincing and itchy at the gazillions of buggy bites and I hope and pray the weather network isn't lying when they say we will have sunshine this afternoon. BRING IT .... kill the damn bugs off and bring the light they so desperately want. Light and my blood.

I read an article that buggies like solitary adults [ie, sitting in lawn chairs] with a little bit of bulk on them -- especially those who indulge in beer-drinking. Mind you, this article was targeting mosquitoes, but I'm sure this theory could also apply to midges.


Yesterday I went on a 1/2 hour road trip to see my Dentist to re-apply a crown to a lower molar, and although the sky and the St. Lawrence River were stone-silver grey, it was a beautiful sight and it didn't rain. My mouth is less sensitive today [thank goodness!] and J. has been feeding me egg salad sandwiches on white bread with the crusts cut off [and the crusts go to the backyard birds and squirrels] so we all have been very content, here.❤️️

I sense you were targeting my beer drinking beersicle eating self in your analysis there Sweet PEABRAIN .... I am offended greatly. NOT ...


The midges are bothering a couple of my neighbors also and they don't drink beer or eat beersicles and sit around in lawn chairs by themselves .... much.


It has to do with a pond or river that runs close to the rear of our property. Midges love the wet damp weeds near the water and come closer to where there are food odors and the houses where its warmer from the sun baking on the cement bricks in the day time. These aggressive little monsters will fly straight into your mouth if they smell something yummy on your breath. If you wear cologne or perfume or A535 they will come and chomp on you as well.


They are really bad this year for that intense summer heat we had and now this cold cooler temps ... they are afraid they will die and need blood for their baby eggs. SO THEY BITE ME.


I HATE THEM ... hate them bad.


PART 2 ....


I am pleased you got your crown repaired and are feeling a little less pain from the dentists drill and work. I am more pleased J is spoiling you as ever and making you yummy egg salad with the crusts cut off and taking good care of you.


Cool to see the gray sky over the St. Law ... I suppose you are back to sunshine today like I am? Here's hoping!

14C feels like 13C not .... it feels much warmer today because the sun is shining. HOOOOOOOOMIDITY is 72%.


The sky is blue there are white wispy clouds and I feel like I am alive because it was so gloomy since Monday's holiday and the rain and the dark clouds hovering over us. A neighbor said it was an OMEN of the coming school year us starting the school week off in dark ominous cloud cover. This neighbor needs to chill out and maybe start drinking so they don't get everyone else around here in a panic.


I am hoping the kids will be safe back to school .... I know Doug Ford will step up and yank them all out of school should anything bad happen. I am not the greatest fan of Mr. Ford and his policy's and history in the Ontario and Toronto government but I am totally surprised at how he handled the pandemic and how he stepped up to the plate when we needed him. He has shown he has compassion and it is possible to be a decent human being during this trying time.


Let's hope the kids will be okay as long as they can.

20C feels like 22C .... hooomidity 94% and its RAININ!


It's kinda windy and its dark and gray and not much more I can say about what we should see alllllll day and into the night. It's a little late for the rainy season to start. We needed this back June July & August for the farmers in the fruity belt to make a go of it but better late then never I suppose.


I suppose ... sort of maybe. NO

MIDGES: We get midges, here in the Thousand Islands, too -- they like to hang around water faucets indoors, and fly together in swarms outdoors around early evening. This year wasn't bad for us, since we put our apple cores and banana peels in the freezer before garbage day. Last year J. made home-made traps for them -- you can use old margarine containers, and put apple vinegar in them [to attract the lil insects] then cover the container with plastic wrap, and punch pin-hole holes in the plastic-wrapped top. The midges crawl over the plastic wrap, and then fall through the pin-holes and cannot fly back out.

My left bottom molar has stopped throbbing, now -- but I am still eating on the other side of my mouth (right), to be on the safe side (under J.'s suggestion)
My dentist had to cut through one side of my gum (my gums were growing over the stub of the remnants of my root canal) to get the crown put back on !!!! I was amazed [STUNNED!] with this news. And because I got that tooth frozen to get the drilling/carving/scraping done, it all didn't hurt that much until I got home. [Thank goodness for Tylenol!]

Today is a rainy day, and while I am indoors at the computer keyboard, J. has been outdoors, sitting on the deck, under the patio umbrella, merging with the raindrops. ❤️️

Thanks for the midges recipe of dooom ... I've done this with a bottle and apple cider vinegar and dish soap - water lately and its WORKS! Amazing cheap ideas that work .... whoooodathunkit?


I'm glad your molar isn't as achy now and good that you are able to chew on the other side for the time being. Weird how gums do what they want where they want in your mouth. I too had a strange encounter with my gum growing up over a wisdom tooth years ago. My dentist said usually they come outta your gums? What have you been doing that makes this one want to hide in shame in your mouth again?


Could it have been the beersicles?



We had rain yesterday in the early morning and then nothing all day although it was being called for. Sounds like you had a nice day hanging out inside on the puter while J watched birbs gettig pummeled with drops of rain.

15C feels like 14C .... 62% hoooooomidity .... its breezy and the trees all around here are yellow and pukey brown colored and losing that vibrant green of summer. Autumn is on .... sigh .... It's nice to wear a sweater or hoody over my tee's when I venture out in the AM. I see people already sporting winter coats and I raise my eyebrows in a sarcastic manner. It's just tooooo damn warm for winter coats YET.


Silly cold bloodes hooomins!

8C ... feels like 7C ... HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMIDITY at 93% ... I am cool and sweaty. How can this be? It's sort of overcast and gray but there are no showers or rain called for today. Are we experiencing smoke from wildfires down south over here in Ontario now? I read Winnipeg had dark smokey sky's yesterday.



Anyways its suppose to be a nice day, I have aired out my winter parka and look forward to shopping later.

19C ... feels like 12C ... its COOL out there and comfy and breezy and only 68% hooooomidity. There is sumsunshinesumwhere but its hidden under gray darkish dusty cloud - SMOKE? cover. Filtered sunlight .... very filtered.



I like Autumn ... I love Fall ... I don't even mind Winter but what I am missing already is the bright light early in the morning that gets much too dark earlier each evening. It's dark before 8pm most evenings here and I feel sads.


I love the bright sunlight for my many plants and my crazy budgie who loves to sit in the window and watch the little birbs flying around. Less and less birbs can be seen daily. They are starting to get ready to head south ... the monarch butterfly's are already in massive amounts seen in the yards sucking up nectar and heading down to the lake to head towards the USA and Mexico. It happens every early September .... and still makes me feel a little bummed by the seasons change.



I will put on a brave face and try and hang in there. Perhaps.

17C feels like 16C ... hoooooooomidity at 83% so its muggyish despite the gusty odd breeze out there. It's sometimes sunny sometimes or most times NOT sunny. They predicted rain last night and today and so far so good. Nuttin!


I think it might rain though .... there are 180000000 teeny tiny mosquitos on the screens of the door and windows trying to get in. Somethings up! They is panic'd!
