Hot Fun in the Summertime...

What's a girl to do?

Make herself an awning that will divert the sun from coming to visit, that's what:

I can rig it over the railing to create a cooler(er) nook to sit and get some air without the sun. Or, lower it down against the window which, combined with the fan I bought last week for 1/2 off, makes my apartment not that bad in 30 degree weather.

Ahhh. Not that bad. I aspire to so little, so I can feel fulfilled.

Uh ... Mommy?

So you and your child are browsing the local Coles Bookstore. Ooh! A table with $5 books! Let's look there, honey, you say. So you and your child check out The Book of Love, Dream Cars, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaur, Rock N' Roll Pop Quiz Book, Incredibly Easy Weeknight Meals, Easy Stirfries, Fashion Model, Great Canadian Speeches, My Cool World in Photos and ...

Suddenly, your child gets very quiet. You know you're staring down the business end of a heart to heart instead of storytime tonight.

Same stuff, different day.

Nothing to see here. Except maybe:
I don't know if there weren't pretty trees like this in Edmonton, or I just never noticed them before. But spring in Toronto has been very eye-catching around here.
