We had hot/humid weather starting on Tuesday & it has lasted through to today. With these type of conditions, we can expect some unstable conditions that resulted in some strong wind bursts, intense downpours of rain & thunder storms. However, we were lucky as all the intense weather was short lived & caused little damage with the exception of a few downed pines.
Along with the hot/humid conditions, the Black Flies & the Mosquitos announced their arrival & made their presence known!
The Black Flies, although annoying, are not near as bothersome as the influx of the vicious Mosquitoes & their desire for blood! To make matters worse, there seems to be fewer Swallows & a scarcity of Bats, as they delight in eating the pesky Mosquitos.
The dogs are not really being bothered too much by the bugs so far as it seems the garlic powder in their food is warding them off.
I posted a YouTube Video of the Hobbits first run in harness on the Training Page.
With these types of conditions, it is good to keep activities to indoors ( with the exception of kennel duties) resulting in baking & cooking. Last week was Deer Steak, Homemade Smoked Beans accompanied with Sauted Mushroom, Onions & Bell Peppers. The photo of Blue says it all! HA! HA!
This week Banana Bread & Moose Burgers.
Oh, my poor waistline!
As the rain continues & the Mosquitos line up on the window screens.
Until next week......
