Well, this past Sunday was Canada Day, so that means it was a long weekend. Happy Canada Day, 151 years old, Canada is.
It was a pretty good weekend. I had Saturday off from umpiring so that was a nice change. I umpired a Cal Ripken double-header on Sunday and since I was in the east side of Calgary, I dropped into Giant Tiger. I was looking for my blankets for my couch, they didn’t have anything I liked, unfortunately. I did find some that I really liked on Wayfair so I may order those. They were $35 each but I think they will work well – free shipping too. I will only need 2 of them as they are 6 feet long each. Will help to protect the leather.
The weather this weekend was ok, it was cool but Saturday and Sunday were clear. We did have some rain yesterday but I was still able to umpire last night. It was cold, how often do you have to wear a jacket in July when umpiring? Well, in Calgary, I’d guess there is a 50/50 chance. It’s currently 7C, but Friday’s high is supposed to be in the low 30’s. Don’t like the weather, wait a day or two, or in some cases, 15 minutes.
Short week at work this week as Friday is Stampede Day and I am off. I am not sure I’d want to visit Stampede Grounds in low 30 heat though…
So, anyway, it’s the start of a new work week, happy Canada Day and for those coming to Stampede, happy Stampeding !!!
