Canada Day was 1 July, and I totally forgot to acknowledge it here for our Canadian members!  My apologies, and I hope y'all had a lovely day, especially since, as I saw online, it was your 150th anniversary of being an independent nation!
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Don't feel bad, DR, I forgot to post a Happy Canada Day!

Might have something to do with painting the bedroom at the cottage, trying not to splatter/drip paint and not scream when DH set the ladder on my foot....

All is well, the bedroom looks so much better, and someone across the lake provided wonderful fireworks.   :)
From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggity beasties and things that go bump in the night...good Lord deliver us!

With the exception of a bruised foot, that sounds like you had a fruitful Canada Day. I love the looks of a fresh coat of paint. The trouble comes from finding time to put the art pictures back up on the wall. It has been a month after I painted the family room a pretty yellow and I still don't have the artwork up.  I hope you are more efficient than I am.

Happy Canada Day, Jerusha.

A cottage by a lake sounds lovely.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

It is a lovely place to go and unwind at the end of the week.  I can read, do needlepoint, swat mosquitoes....

OK, some parts are lovelier than others.   ;D

If you can get Avon products, the original formula of Skin So Soft does a fair job of repelling mosquitoes and other bitey nasty little critters, although the fragrance is pretty strong (it's kind of a blend of herbal and floral notes, but it's pretty intense at least to my nose, although I will also grant that my sense of smell is apparently ultra sensitive, so YMMV), in case things like OFF! are not things you want to apply to your skin.
