Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!
Quote Of The Week
Who among us hasn’t envied a cat’s ability to
Ignore the cares of daily life and to relax completely?
Magellan & Tsunami – Dog Days Of Summer
Happy Wordless Wednesday to you, dear friends –
I hope you are having a fabulous week!
I am currently under the weather and, as you can see –
When I rest, everybody takes a siesta!
Of course, Magellan and Tsunami like to conserve their energy in the heat.
They think these hot summer days are for the dogs!
Right now we are in the midst of the Dog Days Of Summer –
The hottest and most humid time of the year.
Have you ever wondered where that expression came from?
Since ancient times, the Greeks and the Romans have associated
The arrival of extreme hot temperatures with Sirius, the Dog Star.
They believed that Sirius aligned with the Sun and
Combined their energy to make our weather hotter than normal.
Ancient writers such as the Greek poet Hesiod and Homer in the Iliad
Even associated Sirius, the Dog Star with heat, fire, fevers and many evils!
(Sounds like a couple of cat lovers to us!)
