Dog Days Arf! Arf!

We're smack dab in the middle of the Dog Days of Summer. According to the Farmers' Almanac, the "Dog Days" refer to the period from July 3 to August 11 when Sirius, the brightest star visible from the Earth, and the Sun are in the same region. Sirius, which is part of the Canis Major constellation, is known as the Dog Star. The ancient Romans believed Sirius gave off heat that added to the Sun's warmth as an explanation for why this was usually the hottest part of summer, but the real reason for this hot stretch of weather every year is simply the result of the Earth's tilt during this period.

Whatever the reason, it's HOT, but aren't you thankful for the excuse to eat ice cream and popsicles and watermelon? To drink gallons of iced tea and wear shorts and go barefoot? To leave the house and never have to wonder if you should bring a jacket because it might get cooler later BECAUSE IT DOESN'T? 

Drag your lawn chair over here and sit a spell with us while we talk about our week of thankfuls. There's a pitcher of iced tea and one of lemonade and we're going to churn some ice cream soon. Join us at the Ten Things of Thankful blog hop!

Get Yer Head Outta The Oven

If you can walk outside of your house and not feel as though you just stuck your head inside a hot oven, keep it to yourself - the rest of us are sweatin' here!

So it's not like you're spending this weekend going on picnics or running marathons or doing yard work or any other activity that would kill you (okay, would kill ME
) in this weather, so why don't you dust off the ol' blog and list ten things for which you can be thankful? It's a delightfully cooling activity!

The link is live! Join us!
