Not walking the river path at the dog park until there is a frost. Gnats go right through the deet. Thanks to several rains a week, we have mosquitos everywhere. Watched a family of tourists taking advantage of the path. They made it about 10 ft into the woods before giving up. It's really too bad as the river walk is really a pretty walk. About a mile long, through a river bottom woodland and along the river.
Dog park has a low spot in one corner that the dogs have discovered. Fun to watch the other owners running and yelling to get the dogs out of the mud. I told Sky "NO". He left it alone. It's got nothing to do with my ability to train, and everything with his desire to obey. I tend to show off a bit with him. Bringing him from a dead run to sit is fun to watch. And walking him at heel with out a leash seems to surprise people.
Grass is still growing to the point where I mow twice a week. And thanks to the rain, our new highway is about a month behind schedule. They are working Saturdays when it's not raining.
We decided to reside the house. Chunks of paint are falling off in a few places. That should complete the first round of renewals to the house. Now we can start on the repairs to the stuff we replaced when we moved in. Doors, windows, roof, heating, appliances. kitchen. Get it done and enjoy it before we have to move to something smaller with helpers to clean.
