Are you enjoying the dog days of Summer? These are described as the 40 days beginning July 3 and ending August 11, which coincide with the dawn rising of the Sirius, the Dog Star. This is soon after the Summer Solstice, which of course also indicates that heat will soon set in.
Here in central North Carolina, the heat appeared months ago, about the same time our house A/C unit broke. $$$ later, I keep writing.
In my latest book, Heaven-sent Warrior, my characters include a special dog I call Ivor. He is a Samoyed. Big, white and fluffy, he has a knack for guarding other otherworldly beings. Why did I pick this breed? My grandmother had two during my lifetime, both named Frosty. Whenever I think of her, I think of Frosty. Adding him to my book means she is being remembered along with her dogs.
How do you keep cool during summer months? And for my readers in Australia, what are you doing for fun during your cooler season?
