Friday walk in the city

On Friday, I had a date... a very special date... one that I had been looking forward to for months.... My date was with my mechanic and the reason to celebrate was that it was now time to put summer tires back on my car ;) I know- how exciting! YES, it was! Thank you ;)
Since my car was left at the shop, I took the train into work. I have to say that, with such nice weather, it was a pleasant trip and a beautiful morning walk through downtown Montreal on my way into work. Conveniently, my walk led my by Starbuck's, where I had my first iced latte of the season. The day kept getting better ;)

Even if you didn't ask for it, here is another lesson about Canada: Some of my friends in Europe have made comments about our seemingly sudden summer weather. Although not all days are very warm, we have definitely lost our spring time. I would say that over the past 10 years, our winter suddenly turns into 20C temperatures. This year, our meter plus snow banks melted in about 3 days. Funny thing is that, when I was a child, we did have springtime and it usually lasted 3-4 weeks. Now we go from winter boots to sandals in the same week. Global warming in action?

Hope you are all having a great weekend so far! xox
