I don’t do well in heat. Truth be told I would rather live on an iceberg with a polar bear most days. I can picture the conversations we’d have over toasty grande non-fat lattes from Starbucks. Of course this would be right before she ate me. But still – the weather would be just perfect.
A few weeks ago it was like 90 degrees and as soon as I walked outside I said “Oh my it’s so hot I just might melt!” Astrid looked at me and shook her head saying “Mom, you’re not a snowman!”
But wouldn’t it be awesome to be snowman? Except for when it’s over 90.
We are in Indiana this week and it’s hot. I mean hot. Like 102 degrees hot today. For a snowman this is not pleasant weather.
I’m someone who prides herself on complaining about the weather when it’s above 83. I’m the weird one who dreams about blizzards and new sweaters in the middle of July.
This is also why I didn’t live in Southern California very long. I missed the polar bears. And I remember when I got off the plane in Bangkok for the first time and wondered how I would ever cut through the heavy air.
So while I’m not truly physically melting, I am hot. And by hot I mean hot not hot.
And we are keeping cool in many wonderful and simple ways.
How are you staying cool this Summer?
