Rain pelted the city on Monday. There was more rain in one hour then we usually accumulate for the whole month of July. Danielle called me to see if I wanted to meet her and here finance for coffee. After seeing the sky turn dark very quickly, I took a rain check. Outside looked like the Amazon rain forest. Many surrounding areas lost power. Subways were evacuated due to flooding. Go Trains were halted. I was home safe and sound. Phew! Sometimes even coffee isn't worth sacrificing safety.

I watched My Fair Lady and Same Time Next Year. My Fair Lady was OK. Same Time Next Year was a play I saw performed a few years ago. Sadly, I left before the play finished. I was excited to see the ending on DVD. Same Time Next Year was sweet. The last book I read was called Me Before You by Jo Jo Moyes. I enjoyed reading about a quadriplegic who wanted to die. It sounds dark but it was uplifting. Right now I'm reading a book called Wave by Sonali Deraniyagala. It's about the author's experience of losing her family in the tsunami of 2004 in Sri Lanka. The story is gripping.

I am updating my apartment. I bought a new love seat, a decorative pillow, a napkin holder, polka dotted napkins, a storage box, a mop, and storage bins. I'm looking for a big picture, and a throw. Change feels refreshing. At first I thought the pillow was ugly and matched nothing. Over time, I've grown to like the new pillow. It adds flare - kind of like these mixed up fonts.

Happy summer!
