Tuesday was another hot, humid and uncomfortable day, but I dragged myself out again to meet up with a family for photo's. (See my previous blog) I arrived a little earlier and snapped these pictures for myself of the greenery and flowers. It's a nice spot, and was able to find the area's that I wanted to take picture at when the family arrived. It was a good session and I believe the family enjoys the collection of photo's I was able to provide them. I then went out for a walk through the Grove and my usual path in the evening. I was greeted so lovingly by my dog Sneakers when I got back home, and I pet him for the rest of the night. Take a look at the pic to see the look he gave me every time I stopped.
Wednesday, saw yet ANOTHER humid and hot day... but I went out for a walk anyways. I will admit, I felt funny, tired and queasy after this walk, and it was only 10am in the morning when I got back home. After this walk I felt hurt and sick. I had tripped on a root and my right leg was pretty seized up, but I kept walking. Don't know if that helped or not, especially in this heat. I made it down to the park, and snapped this cool blue pic (don't let the colours fool you - it was so disgustingly humid) and felt like jumping in, but I just wanted to get home so badly. When I got home this time, I was greeted by a black cat instead of our usual white. It appeared that while Matt was cleaning, the cat managed to knock over the fireplace grate and got in and covered in soot! So I had to bath her... that was an experience.
Thursday I did a whole lot of nothing. I had to go back to work - so that was a bummer.
Friday, I worked a half day and so I headed over to Joanne's to help her out with her goats. I eagerly wanted to rake up the paddock, and I was even able to pet/brush Frodo! He went from hating me... to liking me, a little too much. I was there for almost 3 hours I think!
