All Things Come
It's enough that I keep track of the days of the week: trash day, who's coming for milk when and how much, race day, etc. Dates are beyond me. It's a very good thing I just happened to glance at the calendar yesterday morning because I had made arrangements to meet a friend for lunch, and that had completely slipped my mind. It also made me realize that Pete and Jake are not coming in a week, they will arrive in four days! Good grief, I've much to do before they get here.
The heat was oppressive in the afternoon (after a fun lunch with my friend in an air-conditioned restaurant), and Bessie didn't need to be asked twice when I suggested she might want to go in the pool. Usually I have to lift her front feet over the edge, but this time she stepped in on her own and waited for me to pour the bath-warm water over her back. That's my excuse to go wading with her. As I've said before, it's a good thing we're out of the public view.
