First the Man thanks everyone for the birthday wishes. He got a birthday adventure last year when we went on a Mediterranean cruise. This year he got to go to a museum, Costco and out for lunch and dinner.

Secondly, it has been a rough week here in rural Quebec. Our friends from very hot places are going to laugh at us because we are going to complain that it is too hot. We have been having a heat wave and temperatures have in the 30s C/90s F, but with the 100% humidity so it has felt like the 40sC/100sF. We know for many of you this isn't a big deal, but a couple things to remember. 1) We don't have a/c so our house feels like 26C/80F with a heavy air. 2) We live in a place with extreme temperatures. We just survived the coldest winter on record with 2 months in the -30sC/-22F. Swinging from -30 to + 30 is a hard change. 

We have had some rain, but while it is enough to keep us from the lake, it hasn't cooled anything down. We are hoping as you read this the cold front will have come through and things will be cooler here. 

We haven't been up to much. We still walk, we still eat, and we try hard to sleep. But none of us are getting enough of that. On top of all of this Lady has had a really crappy work week and is now re-evaluating her entire life (except us, she says we are perfect). 

Here is a blast from the past to help us think of cooler times. We will be complaining about this soon enough!

Hope everyone is surviving their weather, whatever it is! 


  1. Does Man enjoy Costco as much as my Dad does? He always seems to come back wiv sum new thingy. Sorry to hear that Lady's work isn't great, that's no funs is it

  2. you know - they do make window air conditioners or even movable ones on wheels that you can move from room to room. We have one sitting in a box in our garage doing nothing - wish you lived closer we would be happy to give it to you :)

  3. We complain it's to hot also when it's 88F because that is unusual since we live by the beach

    it is certainly a challenge when temps fluctuate so very radically and the body doesn't have time to acclimatise. So sorry to hear Lady's week was so dismal... Hope the weekend helps to clear the head... Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  8. Oh boy, don't I know it! Soooooooooo hot!!! but actually last nights rain did well to cool things down a bit in Ottawa, thankfully.

  9. Stay cool!!!! Hopefully you will ease into autumn soon!!

  10. Mom says she is glad we dont' have the humidity that other areas have, so the heat can be more bearable. We are hearing it will be a bad winter - boo!

  11. Oh no! We're not ready for the snow. ;)

  12. We hears yous about the heat!!! And even mes is looking forward to the cooler days!

  13. We had a bit of a heat wave last week too but we have AC to keep us cool.

  14. Sorry to hear about the heat wave! No one likes sleeping hot. Have you tried a warm shower before bed? Strange as it sounds, it can trick your body into shedding heat and cooling you down. Having damp hair before bed can also cool you down as the moisture evaporates while you sleep. Hope this helps and you're back to cooler weather soon. :-)
