Day 929

When we woke up this morning, it was at least twenty degrees cooler than the day before. There was a nice breeze and it was actually pleasant outside. We decided to go to the dog park right after breakfast, just in case the weather decided to turn hot and muggy again later in the day. Apparently, other Dalmatians had the same idea. When we got to the park, there were already several other Dalmatians there. We had never met the other dogs owners before, but all the Dalmatians, including our own, got their start with Dalmatian Rescue. The nice weather was so unexpected for the 1st. of July that everyone in the park was having a great time. We even got a low altitude flyover by a rare World War bomber that was arriving in town for a Fourth of July airshow. The early dog park visit was a great start to a good day. It's amazing how a little nice weather can improve your mood.

After lunch, I added Dakota and Ollie, the dogs I photographed yesterday, to the Dalmatian Rescue website. These two are both so friendly that I imagine they'll both get homes very quickly. After I finished my website work, I decided to take advantage of the cooler weather and I mowed the grass as well. It certainly wasn't a very strenuous day, but it was a good day.

I have a feeling that next week isn't going to be very strenuous either. The Fourth of July holiday is right in the middle of the week. With a Wednesday holiday, it gives many people a good excuse to either take Monday and Tuesday off, or alternately Thursday and Friday off as well. I doubt that much will get done. I'll be working though. Next week is probably a good time to get some of the heavy lifting done on my new website project. I do a lot better in the initial stages of design when there aren't a lot of distractions.

Janet got a new iPad this weekend. With a faster processor, a camera on board, and the fantastic new retina display, it's making me wish I had a new one as well. No new iPad for me though. I got a big car repair bill instead this month.
