Summer is Here

Well now that Summer has OFFICIALLY begun.. what do you do to beat the heat? A nice tall glass of lemonade? Frozen Coffee? A dip in the pool? What's your favorite way to keep cool this summer as things heat up?

I like air conditioning :-) It keeps my allergies at bay and I can knit with heavier yarn and pretend it is cold outside. But I love the pool, I could stay in the pool for days sometimes, Di (my dog) and I will float for hours on our floaties with our cool drinks (water, beer, Kool Aid, or whatever) I will read while she chases the Japanese Beetles, then she will get back on her floatie and rest for awhile. I have been known to read an entire book this way, but I always try to stick with paperbacks, because Di will sometimes try to get on my floatie and tip me over, but its all good and we stay cool.

We don't have air conditioning, but at this point in the summer it still cools off enough at night that if we open the windows overnight the house stays cool all day.

Well, we only have a window unit A/C that we rarely use, so my favorite heat-buster is popscicles!

When we were looking for a new house, I didn't think too much about AC (plus most of them didn't have central air anyway). But our new house happens to have AC, and now that it is summer, I can tell you that I definitely appreciate it!!! I just didn't realize it before because I was living in cold foggy SF and had no idea how hot it can get in our new city.

I haven't done much knitting lately, still too warm (for wool knitting laying on my lap). If not that, then I am too busy or unfocused.
