Top Ten Tuesday – Ways to beat the Dog Days of Summer

It's that time of year - the dog days of summer, but really want does that mean? Everyone knows that the "dog days of summer" occur during the hottest and muggiest part of the season. Webster defines "dog days" as... 1) the period between early July and early September when the hot sultry weather of summer usually occurs in the northern hemisphere or 2) a period of stagnation or inactivity. We definitely have the hot and humid part down…and all I want to do is sit. Are you tired of being bored? Do you want to have some fun before school starts back? I thought I would share some fun ways to beat the Dog Days of Summer!

  • Have a water balloon fight
  • Have a picnic
  • Read a novel (something just for you)
  • Go to an amusement park or fair and ride the thrill rides!
  • Go fishing
  • Camp out in a tent
  • Walk in the grass barefoot
  • Collect seashells and put them in decorative bowl with some sandl
  • Sleep in! More than once!!!!
