But this is ridiculous,the weather, I mean. Toronto hasn't had that much snow, compared to other regions, but it's cold, cold, cold, and continues to be so. Two years ago we had such a warm March, the plants got fooled and the fruit trees started showing off and when the temperature dropped later in the spring, the blossoms shrivelled and there was a poor apple crop. Cause and effect. Well, this weather is affecting me. I am producing very few apples. I still want to hibernate and hunker down by the fire. But I don't have a fireplace. Think warm thoughts.
Not that people aren't trying, to think warm thoughts, that is, and to pass them along. I don't frequent FaceBook or YouTube but people send me stuff from these sophisticated hot spots. I am up to my epiglottis with cutesy, heart-warming pictures of cats getting along with dogs. foxes snow-diving for mice, babies being very smart and people being smart-ass. None of this compensates for the lack of heat, not even maple syrup. Sap rises with bright days and cold nights. I don't.
Perhaps I'm having a cold snap.
