We did walk today, it wasn't quite as humid, but we needed to get out to walk so we suffered through it. This was after I went out to pick to okra that I last picked yesterday morning. Once a day isn't enough, they get too large. (A gardener's nightmare is waking up and realizing the last time they picked okra was the day before yesterday!)

One of the Invisible Fence collars has failed and yesterday Pepper was charging right up to the fence to bark at the next door dogs. I called around and think I'll be able to get the warrantied replacement today, but to stop the fence charging for now I put Cookie's collar on Pepper before I left for the afternoon. That way, the next time Pepper approached the fence she got the shock, and Cookie's is set stronger than Pepper's, so she probably got quite a shock. And if Cookie was out there (they're always together) and saw it, then all she needs to know is that staying back from the fence is still the right thing to do. Good thing dogs are superstitious.

This weekend is one for finishing two online courses. It's hot so staying in isn't the problem, it's sitting too long and having my hip hurt when I stand up. I'll set a timer and move around every 30 minutes or so.
