It is the perfect temperature. Warm enough to leave the door open to get fresh air. Not warm enough for bugs. Too early for flowers, so my lack of green thumb isn't staring back at me with a lack of colour in my backyard.
I don't know why Tim Horton's is the sponsor of the Brier. I don't remember anyone drinking coffee last night. It was the first thing I thought of when I woke up this morning, so I guess that is the connection.
