One of my favorite Bloggers (I follow more than a few), Mel at No Dog About It recently posted a refreshing little video with two golden girls staying cool in the pool. Like many of you around the world, we’ve had a pretty warm summer. I remember even back in July, we were having crazy hot weather.
Not only was it hot this summer, we’ve also had some wicked storms. The September Issue of National Geographic is also asking “What’s Up With The Weather”. As usual, their coverage and photo’s are amazing, check it out.
Earlier this summer, at Weather Network.com they predicted,”Warmer than normal conditions are expected for most regions in Alberta. Precipitation is expected to average out near normal except for the northwest and southeast tips of the province where dryer than normal conditions are expected.” Bullseye, seems like a direct hit.
Blossum and my lovely garden baskets seemed to love to bask in the sunshine, while I avidly did everything I could to keep cool.
- Used a giant patio awning
- Wore big floppy
- Dipped toes in a private pool
- Stood in front of big fans (makes you feel like a super model)
Alberta’s weather can change in a heartbeat and it sure did this past weekend. Friday night was mild enough to enjoy the patio late into the evening with my pal Deb. Suddenly, instead of enjoying the last long weekend of the summer outdoors, we’re hunkered indoors and had to turned the furnace on (first time in two months). Yep, days have grown shorter and the nights cooler. The late afternoon sun, though still warm, already seems lower in the sky. Now in September, with a familiar chill, those hot summer days are almost a memory. Maybe I’ll be wishing for those hot days next February when it’s -35 C (-31 F). Until then, I’ll use these cooler days to enjoy the craft room and catch up on inside stuff. Either way, I have it made in the shade.
