Civic Holiday today, not much traffic out on the highway or streets I have to travel to get to work so it was a nice ride to the office. It's HOT out though. MUGGY .... hooooomid. 23C feels like 28C and expected thunder/lightening showers this afternoon, bring me some SNOW.

I can't believe its AUGUST already ... where has the time gone?

Autumn is comin! I see and feel changes when August comes around, it gets cooler at night and the sun has gone down by 8:55pm now so it will be sinking earlier each week into more blah - (hello darkness my old friend!) The grass has reached the ultimate perfect dark green color you know its at its peak and the peak will soon be over. The ARK sits collecting pollution dust, grime and old rain muck all around it, while on top of the ark there are 3000 pigeons and a small flock of seagulls that have moved in and set up a homeless boid shelter in it.

I sleep with the window open at night ... the a/c gets a rest. I toss and turn in distress from hearing all the ambulance and firetruck and police sirens and horns. I am in tune to every little noise on the street, car door closes? EYES WIDE OPEN. Neighbor comes out to sit on their porch and I hear them sigh when they sit down and light a cigarette. EYES WIDE OPEN. A cat is chasing a moth on another neighbors porch 8 houses away from mine .... the cat bumps against their door setting off the ring cam and then I hear the owner of the house screaming at the cat for waking them up. EYES WIDE OPEN ..... again.

Soon the CNE - Canadian National Exhibition will arrive in Toronto with concerts and noisy thrilling rides, fast food heart attack trailers/trucks waiting to entice me with deep fried butter drizzled with real Canadian Maple Syrup! and corn on the cob cooked in caldrons of salty butter
drizzled with some grated rich fatty cheese and bacon bits. OH MAN .... pass the vat of salt please my sodium levels want higher sodium levels.

The CNE location is right at the edge of Lake Ontario so the nights are cool and comfy with dark black looking water, shimmering with star light and the moon, while a stunning electric bright florescent skyline of tall condo's, apartment and office towers and LIFE dazzled you from the other side of the exhibition. It's a little mysterious, a whole lot magical at times ... it feels wonderful and almost sad at the same time but its definitely beautiful.

Yes Yes I am lamenting the inevitable here ... its the beginning of the end of summer.

Where has the dang time gone?

Sunny! 20C feels like 21C but its all good because there is a cool lovely breeze blowing alllllll over the place. These are the kind of summer days I can enjoy and love.

SADLY .... the sun is going down at an alarming rate these days. It's dark by 8:15pm these days. SIGH .... I do like the longer days but its what it is.

20C feels like 22C ... its gonna be a hot one today! Which will be fun for the Canadian National Exhibition which is in full swing today. I ain't going, 1st day at the ex is a nightmare. I will wander down there next week sometime with a few friends to see if we can out-eat each other in gross or wonderful foods.

There is a new drink ... Macaroni and Cheese Lemonade and a dill pickle lemonade. Uh ... can someone point me in the direction of the corn on the cob truck please? I'll pass on the new lemonade for now.
