It's the most wonderful time of the year...


Guess it's time to bring the patio furniture inside, huh?

We were outside earlier today running errands and it was half-raining, half-snowing, but melting instantly upon hitting the ground. A few hours spent indoors not paying attention to the weather outside, and look what happens!


These lumps of white with green sticking out? Yeah, those used to be plants with really colourful wildflowers popping out all over...

Every year, I manage to be surprised at the first snowfall. But this year is earlier than the last few, for sure.


Our winter tires go on just next weekend. And I suppose I should stop procrastinating, and pull out the winter coats and boots... *sigh* Mon pays, c'est l'hiver. The crazy thing (or not, considering it's Canada and highly unpredictable weather sometimes) is that I was outside on Friday afternoon a few times just in short sleeves! (But then the temperature plummeted just a few hours later, so I should have known.)

I was at the beach yesterday. Got a bit of a sunburn. Just saying.

...I'm sorry. I can't hear you, Mark, over the noise of me tuning you out ;-P
