Hot and Humid!

Instead of the fireworks show, I met a friend for a walk followed by a drink. It was too warm and humid and even though I love fireworks the thought of the drive and crowds turned me off. I'm debating about going for a run this morning (already yucky outside!) How many of you will go and do an outdoor activity even though the weather is bad? One good thing--a few pounds of liquid will melt off of me ;)

Sharing with you another rose from my garden. Graham Thomas is a beautiful yellow rose and it just makes me think cool thoughts. Enjoy your day! (btw, my jam from yesterday is the best ever!)

Freedom Festival

It has been crazy around here! I went strawberry picking again yesterday morning--it was so hot outside!!! Today I'll be spending the afternoon with my grade 1 class, tomorrow is their last day. It's been such a fun year. Here's hoping that I can get called in for an interview so that I can start teaching and get paid!

I've taken the opportunity of making some money by tutoring privately. So far I have 2 young clients. Here's to a few more over the summer to keep me busy :)

The Freedom Festival Firework show takes place tonight. In case you didn't know, they are the biggest display put on in North America. If you're in the area, swing on by!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Sunshine and Strawberries!

Oh what a beautiful morning,
Oh what a beautiful day,

I've got a wonderful feeling,
Everything's going my way.

If you don't recognize that, it's the chorus from the song of the same title from the musical "Oklahoma".

'Tis the season for strawberries in Essex County and they are divine! Smaller than last year but more intense in flavour and sweetness.

Enjoy the fruits of the season and I hope that everything is going "your way" wherever you are and whatever you're doing :)

I've been too busy to post (and didn't feel as though I had much to say!) but, this morning thought I'd take some pictures of my beautiful roses. Today's photo is of the newest addition to my garden, Pat Austin. I tried to capture the intensity of the colour :)

Have a beautiful weekend!
