What exactly is beating the heat? There really is nothing you can do about the weather; and if that’s not scary, I don’t know what is. We’ve had fourteen consecutive months of heat breaking weather, and now many parts of the U.S. are suffering. I guess it’s our turn now. We’re also in a drought, so I hope that we get rain soon.
So, what have I been doing to deal with this weather? Not a whole lot, I can tell you that. I was off the computer for two-and-a-half-days; and even with that I didn’t get much done. We don’t have air-conditioning, so I’ve been running almost all my fans, almost all day. Even our basement is feeling the heat. In fact, I skipped my exercising for four days this week.
On a happy note, I’ve been puppy-sitting this week, so I did venture out for a walk each day. It’s always important to keep all children, regardless of species well exercised. After our walks, we all made sure to get hydrated, and lay in front of the fan. We may have napped in front of the fan a few times, but hey! – it’s hot outside!
I’ve had many gallons of water this week; and made a bunch of different “cold” food, including pasta salad, stuffed tomatoes and quick stir-fries – anything to avoid turning on the oven!
Another happy occurrence these past two weeks, is that I’ve gotten a lot of reading done; but other than that, not much. I seem to have hit a little bit of a wall with my Camp NaNo, and no, I will not be “winning” this year. Is it possible that your brain stops functioning in the heat and humidity? If you’re living in the parts of the world where the weather is crazy hot, let me know what you do to “beat the heat”.
