Our weather here in Southern Ontario has been a little wonky to say the least. It’s late November now, and I just experienced my first snow yesterday. It didn’t stay, which I’m completely okay with. I’m not a big fan of Winter, to be truthful. I grew up in Northern Ontario, where it wasn’t unheard of to have consistent -30 & -40 Celsius weather.
Nobody bats an eye, it’s just considered the norm. A 5 hours drive South, and it’s not QUITE as cold and QUITE as consistent, but we do still get those days once in a while. You would think growing up with those temperatures, I would be used to it. Nope. I should have been born in warm climate – I could really do with no cold or snow or ice… *shudder*. But then again, I’m not a fan of those pesky mosquitoes and black flies either… and spiders…don’t even get me started!! So if having winter is what keeps them at a bearable minimum (barely!)… then I guess I’ll choose the lesser of evils, and deal with the frigid air. Sigh.
Contrary to many beliefs, we Canadians do not live in igloos and have regular polar bear hunts. Sorry to disappoint! haha
So with all of this wonky weather Mother Nature has been plying us with, I’m really hoping for some decent weather this weekend. The plan is to get my compost bins built and my hard cleaned up – and as good as my intentions are, it’s not exactly a rain-or-shine activity. So I’m hoping for dry-ish, mild-ish weather. I’ve been so excitedly looking forward to it however, that I may just end up doing it even in the rain (no promises, I change my main like I change my socks!)
So fingers crossed that I’ll have a great post on Monday morning, with pictures of my proudly finished bins and clean yard!! Have a great Friday everyone!!
