The dog days of summer

It’s hot in Dallas.

The dog days of summer—“the hot, sultry period of summer between early July and early September”—aptly describes the season in Texas.

My dog Ginger understands perfectly how to survive in the dog days of summer. She’s up early and ready for a morning walk, but she’s content to spend most of the day sleeping inside next to my desk. Not until it’s dark and a little cooler is she ready to venture outdoors again. She finds a soft spot on the grass in the middle of the back yard, plops down and enjoys an hour or two resting and relaxing and doing absolutely nothing.

I’m following Ginger’s example. The dog days of summer are an excellent time to enjoy an hour or two doing absolutely nothing.
