It's also the week of maintaining our health around here. Every single day has some kind of doctor, vision or dental appointment lined up for me or the kids. So it's a week off, but definitely not a week of rest. I did manage to squeeze in a fun lunch with a friend though, and if I have anything to say about it, we will not be talking work. LOL. Thank goodness, school supply shopping got finished on the weekend, so we are good to go in that department.
While I'm typing this I've got a blanket thrown over me. It is chilly this morning. This is typical Southern Alberta. After a hot day yesterday, we had a cold front blow through and we woke up to the temperature being 4*C, which 37*F. C-c-c-cold for August. Now you know why I don't run any air conditioning at night around here. But it's supposed to be warm with today at 23*C (73*F) and a few days going into 28*C (82*F) range during the week. Nice and hot. And I know relatively speaking compared to some of you who hit temps of over a hundred, which by the way, I cannot fathom living in, 82 is quite toasty for us. And in truth, I do like that we have some cooler days in there. But this year really has been on the extreme side for weather. Really up and down. Not a lot of really hot, in our definition, weeks strung in a row. Lots of massive thunderstorms rolling through. I know we are going to pay for that in September though, when our Indian Summer gets rolling. We'll have lots of days in the 30's (80'sF) then. Which makes the kids crazy going to school in weather like that. Poor things. ;v)
A fun bit of local area news. Remember last summer we were all caught up in Canadian Idol because the local area fella, Theo Tams, was making a huge splash on the show. And in fact went on to win Canadian Idol? Well, this summer, a local area gal has made the top 20 in So You Think You Can Dance Canada! How exciting! And so much fun watching the local kids talent shine through on a national stage. I guess I better get my dialing fingers warmed up to vote. And a really interesting note, a Canadian Figure Skating champion from the past, Emanuel Sandhu, has also made the top 20. If you are into figure skating you will know who that is. Skating wise, he was very inconsistent, at times brilliant, and at other times totally choking. Should be interesting to see how he does with dance.
So that's about it for my mish mash? How was your weekend?
