When I said that Victoria Day in Canada and Memorial Day in the USA were the unofficial "first days of summer" I thought I was speaking metaphorically. Right now, though, the temperature in Toronto is 28 degrees (82 south of the border) and climbing, as ridiculous as that may seem. The humidex is 30, which actually seems low to me considering how oppressive the air is out there right now. At 1PM this afternoon, the humidex dipped below 30 for the first time in well over 24 hours (that's as far back as the readings go on the Environment Canada website) including all through last night and the pre-dawn. This morning I could see the humidity in the sky; the air looked grey and thick and filmy even though the sun was shining brilliantly. All the grass in the fields below us has started to turn brown where only a couple of days ago the green was luxurious.
I'm not a fan of the humid weather in these parts at the best of times, but I'm especially not a fan when it happens this early in the year. I would love to see a good, solid thunderstorm or two in the next couple of days, but in the meantime you'll likely find me locking away at home in front of the a/c as much as possible. Tomorrow, however, I will have to brave the heat and head out for a coffee shop in Leaside where I will be meeting my "expert", because....it's Test Drive Day tomorrow! Yay! I'll have a full report when I get home, if I have the energy; otherwise, it will have to wait until Thursday. I'm really excited about this. I just hope the a/c is working at that coffee shop.

Addie will have a full day by herself tomorrow for the first time in a very long time. I'd worry about her, except I imagine she will sleep through it tucked away in our closet and won't even really notice the time passing. But she'll get an extra-special foot rubbing when I get home.
