That's what the weather forecast is for today. We are expecting 80f 27c today. To all my friends down south and east of here, I can already hear them saying "pffftt...that's not hot!!!" We have had a late summer this year, a week ago it was only in the 60s and mid 60s, so this is a big jump. I have been getting up early now that it really IS summer, and we have sunshine. 6am, and what a beautiful time of day. The birds are singing, the world is still quiet. I do my little walkabout in the garden, snip a dead bud here and there, Daisy at my side. Today I had planned to do some major pruning, but that plan has changed. Daisy and I just finished our morning walk, and it is stinkin' hot already. We only went around our block, I don't want her to overdo it, as she doesn't do well in the heat. It's too hot to wear boots, jeans and a long sleeved shirt and get into the bushes to saw and prune. A few fence panels are being replaced between us and our neighbours, and my bushes need to be cleared back. Not today though. Today will be a day of reading, painting, and card making, all with a fan blowing on me in my studio. Getting up this early makes for a lovely afternoon siesta, to ride out the heat of the day. Ah, life is good again!
