Dog Days of Summer

August’s hot weather was once believed to be a time “when the seas boiled, wine turned sour, dogs grew mad, and all creatures became languid, causing to man burning fevers, hysterics, and phrensies.” (Brady‚Äôs Clavis Calendarium, 1813) That’s too dramatic for how the heat makes me feel today – which is lazy!

These hot sultry days are full of swimming lessons, water balloons, iced tea, sweet corn at the produce stand and plans to be outside early rather than at the sun’s peak. I have the need to capture it all before summer fades… Carpe Diem!
