Dog Days of Summer

No Gravatar

Here we are in the middle of the dog days of summer and I am feeling very subtle hints of fall creeping into my subconscious. The days are getting ever so slightly shorter; there is a crispness in the air when I get up in the mornings and a softness to the light in the evenings that make me think of changing leaves and – THANKSGIVING! It has been 10 years since I had my family come to my house for Thanksgiving and I have decided that it is my turn again. I need to start extending the invitations now, before everyone has already made other plans. After I get all the invitations out it will be time to join the doggies in the hammock, sip some Riesling and start making plans. Not a bad way to spend time as summer comes to a close and fall begins.
