One corollary to Mandatory Fun Day is at least one walk around the property. Sometimes a swim, but not this time. Yesterday’s rain, which I found a lovely punctuation to the festivities (no tarps to hide under this year, since the porches are so inviting), has changed everything. And made the lake gorgeous (yes, this is a lake in these parts—pond in the upper Midwest).
A second corollary to MFD is my personal acquisition (against my wishes) of chiggers. This year’s count is four, including one on my forearm—very odd.
