I am pretty sure this past week the Sinus/Allergies have been worse with the hay having been stirred up when it was baled the other evening. I am hoping this was the main cause, if so I will not have to worry about it being so after today ....
Goodbye to the hay from our fields gone on up the Highway North of the Checkerboard, hopefully taking along with it the sinus/allergy headaches I have been suffering with the past week or so.
Last night I was awoken out of a dead sleep, something I enjoy having on occasion, to my "Crabby Cabbie" calling to see if I would meet up with him in Allenford to take over a package to Owen Sound for him. This was just after 11:00 pm. Up, dressed and down the highway I went by 11:30.
I remember thinking to myself how in the heck did I manage working the night shift for three years in a row driving home in the wee hours of the morn, usually not arriving home until 2 or 3 am. I can't believe I did it through heavy fog, torrential rains and terrible snow storms at times. I guess a girl just has to do what a girl has to do, do we not? ... really I don't miss those nights driving home whatsoever.
I rolled back in our driveway around 12:30 am. I must have been really tired, or the heat has just been getting too much, having had worn me out, as I didn't have the usual problem of getting myself back to sleep, not waking again until my "Crabby Cabbie" arrived home around 5 am.
Back to this day at hand ....
I did meet up with Rob later today to gas up the "Crabby Cabbie" vehicle #2. We actually had a bit of time together parking up on Victoria Street in Southampton under a shade tree across from ....
A bit more interesting history on my Hometown of Southampton, Ontario may be found at the following web link:
Speaking of a little bit of history on days gone past, I wonder if my girlfriends remember this house I made a point of driving by today...
It is interesting when we look back to remember how we seen things through our eyes when we were children, is it not? Everything did seem "larger then life" growing up !
When I arrived back home late this afternoon I couldn't help but look out our bedroom window to admire the colour of the Raspberry Bee balm in full bloom. The Hummingbirds were loving the colour and its nectar as well.
Will this "Heat Wave" ever end ???
Chance of a Thunderstorm? That is been the prediction for how many days now? Chance here, chance there .... bring on the Thunderstorms will ya ? Preferably at night when I am sleeping with full sun and a balmy breeze throughout the day please? Really would this be too much to ask? LOL, more then likely not in a "perfect" World it wouldn't be.
This is all I have in me, as I think anything else I has been squeezed out of me by the heat, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
