Moby has been sacked out all day after a warm morning walk. A friend suggested giving him his own pool to play in. Duh! Why hadn’t my brain clicked into this great cooling technique??? I pulled out something close to a pool, a largish bin used for some of my projects. It did the trick. He spent the next 10 minutes trying to paw out all of the water going in! This was his chance to cool off his dogs after the warm walk. Plus he received a big hose down as well. Happy dog for the rest of the day! The sketch was created while he dozed on his favorite purple chair. I think I prefer dog eyes to feet. Feet are tough!
I’ve been spending most of my days down in Eugene. It ends up being a 100 mile/day journey, but today I took a break from dismantling the house. Good thing too since it maxed out at 97 (36 for the rest of the world). The temp on my back deck made it to 100. Fans are set up and moving air, but not helping that much. Hopefully a little wind will pick up and cool things down tonight.
The above photo is of my cooling off drink creation: basil lemonade. Muddle basil with sugar, add squeezed lemon juice, cold water and ice. Yummy! Of course, I know some of my friends/family find basil in drinks revolting. All I can say is if you like lavender lemonade, you might give basil a try! Mint might be good too….
More Eugene tomorrow and the weather report says it will be cooler. I hope they are right!
