this and that

I have to admit that I am floundering here. It is 30 degrees Celsius today - for us Calgarians this is considered a heat wave. The only activity that makes sense is sitting on a patio somewhere, with trendy sunglasses on, drinking beer and people watching. I am sitting outside, on my step under our huge shade tree, drinking very cold wine and feeling too lethargic to even come up with something really witty to write.

Believe it or not I have decided to knit a little cardigan; but I got as far as six rows and it was put back in my favorite knitting bag until a cooler day; it does not help that it is black yarn. I went running this morning - was supposed to do 16 km - at 14.5 km I decided to call it a day. I love this hot weather, but us northerners are not used to it and our entire physiological system goes into shock. Well, I am going to leave you with a photo of a really cute green jug with just the right amount of peeling paint that I found in a second hand shop. It matches the nasturtiums in my garden and I take great pleasure in just looking at it :)
