I would like to be going but am staying behind to take care of the animals and the garden. It is very difficult to get someone to watch the dogs and the cats as well as have someone trustworthy stay at the house. Because we live out in the country, it is necessary to not just let things go for 2 weeks. Yet, I am hoping in a few years we can make the trip up there together. It is a wonderful place to visit.
I am planning to pull the boat out of the water next week, pressure wash and paint the bottom. That way the boat will be ready to go back in the water by the time C. gets home.
The heat here has been bad over the last few days. There has been nothing but a hot breeze today. So maybe it is good to stay in the AC this weekend, pick veggies from the garden, and just relax in doors. I know that the old heart dog is glad to not be going on the boat. It is just too hot for a thick coated Labrador even with the boom tent.
I will most likely bore you with more photos from the garden and some news from "up North" over the next couple of weeks. And I'm still planning to get around to all the blogs. You guys have been prolific with your writing, and I have been a slacker with reading and commenting. Maybe retirement is making me lazy?
