Not sure where this term came from, but it sort of speaks to where we are now.

Not so scheduled.
For those of us who come from the education setting, it’s a time to catch up on all the things we don’t get done during the year:
Doctor & Dentist appointments.
Reading several books–gulping them whole as opposed to piecemeal.
Cleaning out a closet or two.
Maybe taking a class or two—baking, pottery-something not a part of our normal existence.
And always planning for the new year. Educators seldom really shut down.
Fortunately, we hadn’t planned any vacations for this summer. As President of the Tarrant County Bar Association Bob has several lawyer conferences to attend, so we cut out our August trip to Red River with the family. Good thing. With my broken ankle getting around the mountains or riding for 12 hours wouldn’t be much fun! Last summer in Red River
We continue settling in to the Lakehouse. Waiting for shades for the main room and hanging all the pictures. We celebrated July 4th with a fun cookout with family and friends. We’ll have several more of those ending with the Labor Day bash.
Bob had successful cataract surgery on both eyes—surely a miracle! Thank you, family for getting us through all the doctor trips.
And we look forward to October and a return trip to Boothbay Harbor, Maine. This location was the inspiration for my 4th book, ACT OF TRUST, Book 2 of the Second Chances Series.
Big News: Book signing in Dallas at the main Half-Price Book store location Aug. 13. Y & R PR set this up for me and others. I’ll share more info as we get closer.

Do you know where the term “dog days of summer” comes from? How did you spend the 4th? What’s your favorite thing about summer? Love to hear from you.
