….of ‘the game of life’, barbecue/cookouts, & ‘dog days’…

As the google doodle reminds us today of the 140th anniversary of the Wimbledon Tennis championships, it can set the tone for all of us to remind ourselves that in the ‘game of life’the ball’s in our court!

….”Canada Day Long weekend: Celebration cookout menu keeps it simple but stunning”…”Hello ‘dog days of summer’ “

SOMETHING ABOUT…..“burrata drizzled with olive oil & served with grilled bread, quinoa & roasted beet salad, & planked honey mustard salmon.”

Yum!….Doesn’t that just smile—west coast delicious?!!!

Indeed, July 3rd, the ‘dog days’ of summer officially begin (according to the old farmer’s almanac)!

SOMETHING ABOUT….“The dog days 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.”

Dog days bright and clear
Indicate a good year;
But when accompanied by rain,
We hope for better times in vain – Old Farmer’s Almanac

Cheers to a sizzling summer Monday wherever you may be!
