Day 575

Jeez, it's hot! I was sipping a glass of lemonade on the porch while the dogs were sunning themselves and I saw a worm crawl out of the ground and immediately fry itself on a hot rock. The dogs and I proved that we were smarter than worms by going back inside where it was air conditioned.

At least there was a breeze at dog class tonight. Granted, it was a hot breeze, but it was definitely better than no breeze at all. Everyone brings water for their dogs now. Some people even bring spray bottles and spray their dogs down between excercises. You can tell the days are starting to get shorter now, because the shadows are getting long by the time class is finished. Shorter days don't necessarily mean cooler days though. It's probably going to be hot like this until the middle of September. Dash did real good on the long down exercise tonight. He likes this one because he can just lie down and do nothing for five minutes.

After I ordered a bunch of GoPro accessories over the Internet, I discovered that the Best Buy store just down the street carries all this stuff right here in town. I can never decide whether I like online shopping better than just going to a store. It used to be that things were almost universally cheaper online, but now more and more online retailers are charging sales tax, just like their brick and mortar counterparts. I guess online shopping is still easier, but if your job involves staring at a large computer screen all day, it nice to just get out of the house for a while and do some old fashioned shopping.

I scheduled my blood work for tomorrow morning. No breakfast for me. Well, no breakfast right away anyway. I think I'll go get the blood work done early and then go out for breakfast on the way home.
