This weekend Mac found a copperhead snake in a flowerbed near the garage. He's not keen on killing anything, but poisonous snakes should not take up residence near the house.
Swimming in the pool the last 2 days has felt wonderful. We're going out later this week to look for a net gazebo to go on the deck so we can sit outside more--without it the bugs will get us. For example, even though I sprayed bug repellant all over I have 3 new deer fly bites. Deer fly are all mouth and nothing repels them.
Summer meals, ribs and potato salad followed by a nap in the heat of the afternoon.
I've been trying to get the house back into shape after our trip and catch up on laundry while Mac has tried to catch up on the yard. My job is hot and hard because we don't turn air conditioning on till noon, but his is hotter, I don't know how he does it.
The daylillies and the gladiolas are quite spectacular this year.

zoo, a Utah prairie dog and a 3-line chipmunk.
