"The dog days or dog days of summer are the hot, sultry days of summer. They were historically the period following the heliacal rising of the star Sirius, which Greek and Roman astrology connected with heat, drought, sudden thunderstorms, lethargy, fever, mad dogs, and bad luck. They are now taken to be the hottest, most uncomfortable part of summer in the Northern Hemisphere." - Wikipedia
That seems to describe the mood here in my little Home Sweet Apartment. Except that our weather hasn't been all that hot, with temps in the 80's during daylight hours and the humidity at mid-range. Of all the descriptive words used above, I think that 'lethargy' best describes it. My 'get-up-and-go' seems to have 'got-up-and-went.'
I have been doing just enough of the housekeeping chores to keep my apartment from reaching pig-sty status. Otherwise it has been naps and reading and naps and entering data into my genealogy program and naps. I think this might just continue over the weekend and with any kind of luck I may acquire some energy by Monday. I have several projects waiting for me to wake up enough to do them. Until that happens, those folks listed in the sidebar are leading lives much more exciting than mine at the moment. Go visit them and enjoy.
