#SoCS – The Weather


Whether you’re from the east coast or the west coast or somewhere in between, if you’re Canadian, you love to talk about the weather. It’s our national pasttime, aside from drinking our Timmie’s and jumping into a frozen lake on the first of January. …okay, not all of us are that brave. I’m not that brave. Scratch that last one.

The weather was lovely today. I sat outside (in the car) and read my book for an hour while I waited for my son to get out of his movie. With the windows down and everything! (In the car, not in the movie.) I sometimes hate not being able to fix my grammar when I write a SoCS post. Why did I make up that rule? Oh yeah. To make it feel like we’re actually sitting down, talking together. My grammar isn’t as good when I speak, compared to when I edit what I’ve written. And let’s face it, who’s going to stop listening to me because my spoken grammar sucks? Wait… nobody listens to me anyway. Never mind.

What was I talking about again? Oh yeah, the weather. It went up to 24C today. Perfect. My best friend, John, came over and cut the grass – he brought his own lawn mower since mine kicked the bucket. Luckily I only have a front yard to worry about. The back is still just dirt. And speaking of dirt (and mud), I had a smell outside today that was so rotten that I called the gas company to come and check to see if there was a leak. Turns out my next door neighbour was emptying his pool of skunky water. Yeah, it was that bad. And where did he drain it? Let’s just say Winston’s paws were wet when he came in.

Thank goodness for my back door neighbour’s beautiful yard. Makes up for my muddy one and the next door neighbour’s stinky one – as long as I keep the windows closed and the dog in. But who wants to do that with all this lovely weather?

Stream of Consciousness Saturday (yeah, I know, it’s Sunday now – shoot me) is brought to you by me and my prompt, here: check it out!

  1. 🙂 Yes, Canadians love our Tim Hortons, coffee, tea or ice caps. 🙂

  2. Glad you had some nice weather. We had some fairly nice weather here, too, if just a tad warm, and I spent all day yesterday at the Busch Gardens amusement park with my cousins.


  3. I’m assuming a “Timmie” is a cup of coffee from Tim Horton’s. Am I right?

    Sitting outside in the car reading is one of my favorite activities.


  4. What’s a Timmie?


  5. I’m glad you had a nice day. I’ve questioned your no-edit rule, but it makes it fun when things go sideways and I have to find a way back. I think it’s funny how dogs don’t mind the mud.


  6. Glad you got the good weather to counteract the smelly neighbours!


  7. Yuck for stinky neighbors and their stinky water!
    Im so happy i discovered your SoCs. I love it!


  8. Sorry about your stanky mud-pawed dog. Ick.
    I’m glad you have the nice weather though 🙂
