First, I must say Happy Canada Day to my wonderful hubby Troubadour and also to all of our Canadian friends and relatives. I hope you have a great day off, you all deserve it. Sorry you have to work Troubadour.
Now, I must explain the rest of the title of this post - "Summer's Over". When we lived in British Columbia it always seemed that time went by so quickly that the minute it was Canada Day, summer was over and it was Labour Day already. Yes, I spelled it "labour", it is Canada Day after all.
It still seems to be true today. So enjoy summer why you can, before you know it, it will be over. In fact the days are getting shorter already. Somehow it doesn't seem fair that the days get longer in spring, but when the nice weather hits, they get shorter.
Have a wonderful day everyone, whether you are enjoying the sunshine and a day off or working and watching the sun through the window.

"As always, Canada will now bury its war dead, just as the rest of the world, as always, will forget its sacrifice, just as it always forgets nearly everything Canada ever does. It seems that Canada's historic mission is to come to the selfless aid both of its friends and of complete strangers, and then, once the crisis is over, to be well and truly ignored. Canada is the perpetual wallflower that stands on the edge of the hall, waiting for someone to come and ask her for a dance." - Kevin Myers (The Daily Telegraph, London)
