Just when we thought that summer was over, Toronto faced an unprecedented heat wave for two weeks. We literally haven’t had an enjoyable summer for the entire season since the weather kept swaying back and forth between a few humid days and chilly rain days. Definitely not what you call a good summer. While we were in Portugal, we received regular updates from our friends back in Canada that the temperature was dropping, and that we had left at just the right time. I wasn’t looking forward to coming back to sweater weather so soon after enjoying a week or two of sun and warmth. Luckily for us, the chilly temperatures didn’t last long.
