Good 50º clear and sunny morning. I think it was 85º here yesterday. High humidity. UGH. Supposed to cool off for a few days. Two years ago it was 29º and last year it was 32º. Big difference.
I was out mowing most of the day yesterday. Jason was here weed-eating the creek bed and sides so when Rick is here Tuesday there is no question where the creek is! Had one guy who brush-hogged for me and he ran over across the creek several times and broke down the sides so I had to have it dug out. Sigh......
I came in for lunch and made a salad..... dressing was good... I mixed some plain yogurt with infused olive oil, lemon juice, and sweet hot chili sauce. (Yes, not wine, I keep the lemon juice in a Mad Housewife bottle and the infused oil in a 3 Blind Moose bottle!)
While I was out and about mowing, Dude and Bruiser followed me around and followed each other! Nuts.
