The Dog Days of Summer
These are the days we wait for all winter; days so hot that you can put your head directly under the outdoor faucet and it feels wonderful. Wondering where the term “dog days” originated, I looked it up and it refers to the dog star, Sirius, and its position in the heavens. To the Greeks and Romans, the “dog days” occurred around the day when Sirius appeared to rise just before the sun, in late July. Makes sense that we now associate “dog days” with summer; the same time that Sirius could be seen by the Greeks and Romans, which also occurred at the hottest time of the year for them.
Your share this week is full of the best that summer has to offer. Enjoy!
