keep the day free

Uh oh. My fatalistic side just kicked in a few days ago and I began to realize that fall is just around the bend. I love fall. But everyone living in the north is fully aware of what comes after lovely fall. Bloody winter.

So this is your final warning to go do something silly outside while you still can. (I guess you can do silly things outside in the winter too, but last time I checked, frost bite was no laughing matter)
Stay out and watch the sunset in as many places throughout the city as possible.

Try to appreciate that there are palm tree-like plants growing around Ottawa. Outside. Temporarily of course.
