When Ray and I went out this morning, the thermometer was showing 0C/32F.
It’s that time of year again when we do the “wardrobe/closet shuffle”! However, while the snow is “just around the corner”, we are still appreciating the various shrubs and trees which make Fall so colorful.
On a walk along the lakeside trail the other day, we stopped on a hill which overlooks Oakville’s harbor entrance and part of the sailboat moorings.
Ray is really enjoying the drop in both the temperature and the humidity but then, knowing how I feel on a really hot and humid day, that should be no surprise.
Contrary to what many people do here, we will celebrate Winter when it arrives. Of course we have to dress for the extreme temperatures but, when the snow comes, Ray will no doubt have fun chasing and catching snow balls and, with exception of the few times when he must wear his boots, he will have such a bounce in his stride once again!
We will be playing new games like “Find my poop!” I am really hoping that Ray remembers his habit of the last two Winters where he responded to “Where’s your poop buddy? Show me!” by taking me to a hole in the snow and pointing with his nose! Such fun! Yes… we will be celebrating our Winter very soon.
