This is good-bye for a little while. I'll ask you to read to the end to understand why and then we'll reconnect soon (I hope).
 
I've been struggling.

Imagine a lavender farm on a mild Vancouver Island Saturday - skies dotted with clouds but a comfortable 20C. Now picture goats - little ones, bigger ones - running freely. And now, add yoga. That's exactly what my pal Nancy did last weekend. I wish I'd gone, but since I didn't, I asked her a whole bunch of questions about "goat yoga" so we could share the experience together. Here we go!

Happy JULIO Day! It's July 10 (Jul 10, thus "Julio") and although it hasn't caught on like MARIO day (Mar 10 - you guessed it) who knows? Maybe it will - or has done in countries where Julio is a more common name than here in the Great White North. Or maybe I'm the only person in the world crazy enough to look at numbers and letters and come up with words. That's how this brain of mine works, for better or for worse!

Hope you managed to stay cool this weekend if you were in the more humid parts of our lovely country; here in the Victoria area it was cloudy and about 20C. Perfect weather for the Saanich Strawberry Festival, where you could spot Rob, me and a whole lot of other great Rotary folks volunteering, cooking and selling dogs and burgers. Now I think we're off 'til Labour Day and the Saanich Fall Fair. I shall practise my Bingo calls until then.

I don't know how it is that the first week of such a laid-back month as July can be so busy. But here we are, glad to see Friday roll around (unless you're among those who booked the week off because of Canada Day on Monday).
 
I have half of a new computer: the store here in Victoria that deals with Apple products replaced my wonky keyboard, my touch bar, my trackpad and speakers, which somehow works out to be less cost to Apple than replacing just the keyboard. Anyway, here I go with another one. I will be sure to let you know when H, E, A, R and T are worn out!

Welcome into Thursday - already! Have you found a good book to enjoy under the shade of a tree or awning, or perhaps inside near a fan or the AC? I've been enjoying the emails and posts from folks saying that they held off on reading Mourning Has Broken until summer. I wasn't sure it would be the kind of lighthearted breezy read that some folks are looking for...until I saw this yesterday:

In reading all of the Canada Day greetings on social media on the weekend, I couldn't help but notice all of the mentions that ended with the cute suffix "eh?" and I was reminded of an interesting post a little while ago as to WHY Canadians say "eh." I thought you might be fascinated too.

Welcome to the second half of 2019 - hope you're well on your way to making those New Year's resolutions (remember them?) a reality. BAHAHAHA! Who am I kidding?
