The Dog Day of Summer

Today was the first day of summer, and we’re having a spell of hot weather – not as hot as it was in Spain last week, but hotter than normal for this time of year here.

Normally, we’d’ve taken a morning walk to take advantage of the relative coolness, but our schedule didn’t permit it. By the time we were finished with our errands, it was well over 90F and we stayed home.

We did finally manage a short walk this evening after the temperature dropped back into the 80’s, but it wasn’t an enthusiastic walk.
