Summer heat

This first day of July is hot and humid.  Perfect for clearing weeds and spreading mulch.

Kyle had soccer practice at 8am.  I drop him off and then do a run is San Souci.  Even at 8:30am it is hot.  

Bagels cream cheese and lox for breakfast.

This day in history "At midnight on July 1, 1997, Hong Kong reverts back to Chinese rule in a ceremony attended by British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Prince Charles of Wales, Chinese President Jiang Zemin, and U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. A few thousand Hong Kongers protested the turnover, which was otherwise celebratory and peaceful."

Luke and I play pool volleyball.  He wins.

So, Gavin and I decide to clear the side yard, chop out some grass, and add mulch around the strawberry and spice garden.  This area also has the pool equipment.  

I take frequent breaks and am dripping with sweat.  Gavin just keeps chopping away at the grass.  I take another dip in the pool.

We watch Spain beat Italy in Euro 2012.

Some burgers on the grill and a thunderstorm rolls through.

We hit Patchogue lake for an hour tonight.  The usual collection of big bluegills, sunfish, and juvenile yellow perch.  As we are packing up another couple of anglers sow up.  These guys are serious about their bass fishing.  Luke and I will try some artificials another night.
