Of course none of this compares with the devastation and tragedy we have all witnessed on the news from Australia. That doesn't bear thinking about and my heart goes out to all those affected by the dreadful fires. Nature is a very powerful, awesome thing in all its shapes and forms.
I have to get dressed soon and head outside to walk the dog. I loathe this transition in the weather every year. Everywhere is muddy and grey, and everyone, especially the dog, treads it into the house. The seasons in this part of Canada are not really to my taste, too cold to do much during the winter, a very nice but far too short spring and autumn, and too hot summers.
Well I think that is enough of that for today. Have a good one everyone, no matter the weather :)
