Beautiful spring morning here, temp dropped to about 60°F/15.5°C outside last night so when I awoke with all the windows open and the fan blowing on me I hunched back under the sheet for a minute while I made a quick plan, which I then accomplished. Having accomplished it, I proceeded into the kitchen to start the coughee machine, at which point I let out the Demon Spawn and his Chonky Sidekick. Hours later, I finally got the damnable weed-whacker started (after two days of trying) and did the whacking of weeds that needed done. Expected high of around 88°F/31°C while there just ain't no tellin' how high *I* might get.

Makes you think Bernie Taupin wrote that line in Elton John’s “Rocket Man” just for JJ…..”I’m gonna be high as a kite by then.”

Picture looks great its my favorite time of year, Brooklyn my devil spawn would not leave me alone. I was right telling you to never get a dog they so much work and some days she never leaves me alone and some how I end up feeling the guilty one for not playing with her as I should. Enjoy the great weather and wish our plants were that green,could smoke them. One for jj the guy lost in his kitchen haha

@PhredWreck - I would have also stayed up if I knew for sure they were going to offer a refreshment.

Yesterday we achieved a high of 22°C. With the wind off the Strait it felt much cooler. The entire province is under a burn ban. Both Nova Scotia and New Brunswick have active forest fires and we could use some rain.

I did some mowing of grass that I had mowed less than a week ago. I did that after posting the discussion that said I would do so. It is pleasant and it is almost 9 p.m.

Sunny day, nice temp, the mower works... what a good life! Hopefully you'll get higher than the high temp, 31°C is close to hell. We might hit 31°C next week if not earlier.
