Don't listen to the weather forecast

It'll only get you down, and it's all LIES!

Anyway, today, despite the negative vibes put out by Environment Canada, was quite a beautiful day, and the first one in weeks (it seems). S. and I went for a walk in the park and, for all you birdwatchers out there, it was warbler city! Eleven species of warbler in all, including a blackpoll, which we hadn't seen since moving back from Winnipeg 14 years ago. All told, we tallied 38 species today. I guess the birds were as happy about the weather as we were.

In other news (albeit late news), last Friday, I broke the spout off the teapot I've owned since I moved to Montreal in 1987. I don't normally put much faith in such things, but my friend Aisha recently made a post on the Brown Betty teapot. I've always thought mine was a Brown Betty, but it says Stadler on the bottom. I guess I subconsciously wanted an authentic BB. Anyway, I'm off to see if I can find the most English of teapots in this most French of North American cities. Wish me luck.

Congratulations! :) on gettinn a Brown Betty and on agreeing with me that the weather forecast is no good (posted on that once too :)))

Here we are having a marathon: all three Lord of the Rings on DVD in one day -- how you may ask? using the Fast Forward button a lot. Breaking for reindeer sandwiches before the Return of the King.
Hi to Sonia-- I know you talked about those birds in French.

I didn't believe in weather forecast, but recently they are more accurate, quite precise I'd say. They said a wave of torrid heat and torrid heat it is with very high humidity as usual. I wish they were wrong:-(
