Happy Canada Day!
I haven't been in Canada for Canada Day celebrations for over a decade so today is going to be great! A smoked brisket, some Canadian beer, grape Koolaid, ice cream sandwiches and Twizzlers red licorice will be all be involved, I'm sure! And so will a swim at the pool next door! I've got my new red t-shirt on and factor 60 sun screen. I am ready!

My trip home ends in two and a half days so I have been frantically eating my way across the Ottawa Valley to satisfy cravings for things I can not get/eat in the UK!! I've managed to eat an Arby's roast beef sandwich, some Little Caesars garlic bread sticks, cheese curds (picture below), Swedish berries and Big Feet. Did you know that Tim Hortons does French Cruller [sounds like 'crew-ler'] holes/bites? Yum. I've put a picture above to show you what the donut looks like, though I wouldn't call a French Cruller a donut!
Today will satisfy the grape Koolaid craving and who knows what else I will fit in in the next couple of days!! Oh and guess what? I had jello with fruit in it at my aunt's house the other day - on the same plate as the ham and salads!! I loved that as a kid but sometimes there would be vegetables in it!
Hopefully Mother Nature will keep the rain to herself. The breeze today is great - makes the 31*C temperature (feels like 41*C with the humidity factored in) almost bearable! Yesterday felt like 49*C. Hot. Damn hot. I have a little Fiat 500 soft top convertible as my rental car so I have been zipping around in that!!
So there you have it! The next time I check in with you I will be back in the UK so until then -- Happy Canada Day!!
