It has been hot here, like CRAZY hot.
Thursday was the hottest day on record in Toronto, which is where I happened to be all day. Oh, and I was working. Outside.
The thermometer hit 38 degrees in the shade. Plus that blasted humidex. And of course, the sun.
It took me more than 24 hours to recover from the day.
We haven't had rain here since Canada Day, over THREE weeks ago. (Which is also the last time I was in a tent, incidentally.)
It's part of the reason that my grass looks like this:
Today was the first day in a few that it actually felt like we weren't going to asphyxiate when we walked out the door, so out we went. There was a little bit of swinging action on our new to us swing set...it needs a coat of paint, but the price was right, and the boys don't give a crap that it's rusty!
We spent the whole day outside. Eating, playing, sprinklering, the whole shebang.
And this. This? I don't even know what to say about this photo...only that it's 87 shades of awesome:Weekend. Nutshell. Scene.
(P.S. Right now, for the first time in three weeks, it is finally raining. Thank god.)
