Hot, Hot, Hot...
It’s still stinkin’ hot here in Toronto.
Last night I finally turned off the wall mounted air conditioner in the family room and opened the sliding door to get some fresh air. (Humid, but fresh.) I appreciate the A/C - big time - but I couldn’t stand one more minute of its noise. (Headache approaching…)
Once outside on the deck, I heard something awful – the sound of my neighbour’s air conditioner in its death throes. Rattle, rattle, rattle, whump – silence.
There but for the grace of God, go I….
I also heard something else – very weird. The cicada bugs were so incredibly loud I actually wondered if some electrical line was about to fry. (I have a tendency to think of worst case scenarios.)
Nope. Just those bugs doing their thing on a very hot summer evening. I’ve never heard them that loud before.
Boring post? Okay, maybe. It’s just one of those “slice of life” commentaries.
My life, my blog, my long hot summer.
(I also posted a book review today - see below.)
