Dies Caniculares

Dear Diary:

Ahhh yes.  The "dog days" of summer are upon us.  Generally these days are the hottest of the summer season and that's exactly what's happening in my part of the country. 

In the northern hemisphere, the days fall between early July and early September. They were given this name in early times as it was believed that Sirius, the Dog Star, came too close to the sun causing hot weather.  It was also thought that it was an evil time, as a quote from Clavis Calendarium (Brody) states "when the seas boiled, wine turned sour, Quinto raged in anger, dogs grew mad, and all creatures became languid, causing to man burning fevers, hysterics, and phrensies".

But luckily that isn't even a consideration now and in this beautiful weather I wanted to go to the beach one last time so I persuaded my good friend, Chloe to join me.

It was a great afternoon and one we'll remember during the freezing days of January.

Good Night for now.
