It’s hot. Like, really hot. Like shit-I-had-no-idea-Canada-could-be-so-hot hot. We are experiencing a heat wave and Dairy Queen is making millions of dollars (an estimation based on the number of sweaty people ordering Blizzard treats at the corner of Baseline and Merivale—fun fact, I never tasted anything from Dairy Queen!).
I can’t exactly show how hot it is so you will have to trust me on that one. But I did take a walk in the Experimental Farm, where corn fields sprouted high plants. Straw was being gathered and I stood there, as fascinated by the big combine harvesters and farming activities as Mark is with big trucks. I’m a city girl and I feel lucky to live by the huge Experimental Farm, in the heart of Ottawa—I get to experience the country’s life without the loneliness and isolation!
