It rained all morning and all evening yesterday - my only (almost) day off. Cold, too. Sounds like it was raining all over Canada. I had plans for outside work yesterday. I don't mind working outside in the rain. I love rain. But the soil in the front yard has finally been raked evenly and I don't want to disturb it when it's wet.

And I can't cut the grass in the backyard either. We're having a backyard party this coming weekend, so I need to get some work done there. This weekend is a "long weekend" in Canada - May 23 is (Queen) Victoria Day and also traditionally the weekend that gardeners across Canada plant their gardens (there are no other optimists like gardeners). It's also usually a bit on the chilly side. The public swimming pool opens every year on this weekend, and while the outdoor pool is filled with happy, noisy children, the pool staff are usually wearing parkas and shivering on the pool deck.
Next weekend we're planning a cozy fire in our backyard fire pit. So it would be nice to get the grass cut, and the accumulated mess from last Fall cleaned up. It's amazing how fast the weeds grow. The pasture of dandelions in the backyard have already flowered and gone to seed. It's ot fair how they can go through an entire reproduction cycle and it's barely warm enough to be outside.
Until next time,
