The Think Write Thursday topic for July 20, 2017 is to tell us what you do to beat the heat! We’re deep into summer here and some of those love the heat and some of us hate it but either way we all have to cope with it. What do you do that works for you? Share you tips, stories and more on coping with summer heat!
Some of us (me, for instance) love the summer. And some of us (I’m looking at you, Ms. Etherknitter) don’t. But I’m pretty sure that none of us love the super high heat and the uncomfortable humidity. That’s what we’ve been having. In other words, as Becky put it, it’s hotter than a firecracker out there! So what do I do when it’s hot, hot, hot? I stay inside. That’s right. Me, the one who love outdoors, stays inside because everywhere I go (my car, my office at the library, my office at the COA, and my house) has air conditioning. I still have to go outside when I move between those places but I take my time and go slow and it’s not so bad. In fact, the AC at the library was working overtime the other day and the air outside felt pretty good. Almost like coming in and sitting by the woodstove on a January day.
And that image is all I need to remind me that this, too, shall pass. It will become cold again and I won’t like it one bit. So for now I will delight in the modern wonder of air conditioning. I will swim in cool water when I get the opportunity. I will drink cold things and eat ice cream and not turn on my oven unless absolutely necessary – which, by the way, it will be since I’m bringing a blueberry pie to dinner at a friend’s house this evening. I will revel in the heat because everything – even high humidity – is temporary.
