Well, the excitement from the storm has passed. I thought for a while today that we were in for another severe storm. Toronto did get it, but it passed us by.
It was HOT today. 33.3 degrees Celsius, which is 91.94 degrees Fahrenheit, but with the humidex it was 40 Celsius, which is 104 Fahrenheit. We surpassed a record that was set on the same day in 1959.
The neighbor lady and I spent a few hours stripping wallpaper in the biggest bedroom of the upstairs apartment. We quit about 3pm because it was just too warm, even with the air conditioning. Hubby wasn't feeling good, so we had him go and pick up a couple things for us but wouldn't let him do any work. I think part of his problem was the heat and the air quality was poor as well. I don't need him taking a heart attack because he's working too hard at that apartment. I told him it will get done when it gets done and he's not killing himself to do it. I expected an argument but I got none - another sign that he wasn't feeling well.
Jack is coming tomorrow, so he will get all the mess cleaned up and we will go from there. It will all get done in it's own time.
I would like to introduce you to a blogging friend of mine. His name is Paul and he is 93 years old. He is the father of Denise at Samaritan Women. He is a great poet and tells some great stories of his younger years. Please visit him at The Poet. I love visiting his blog, reading his poems and walking with him down Memory Lane. Be sure to stop by and say hello.
Please continue to pray for Denise at Shortybear's Place. She lost her brother on Sunday and she is going through a difficult time. If you would like to send her a card, please let me know. A card shower is a lovely way to express our sincere condolences in this time of sorrow.
Have a great week and remember to do a random act of kindness. Kindness brings hope where all hope has been lost. Blessings, Mary
