Chapter 7, Page 18, Book 13

Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it.

Specially blended to keep cool...

How does anyone beat the heat these days? With temperatures soaring keeping cool can be quite a challenge. They say that the fun of staying cool in the summer heat comes from finding creative ways to do it.  I've run out of ideas.

Here at my house, I've found that if I move around I get hotter, so my days have been spent inside reading a lot. 

I drink cooling drinks, eat lots of fruit cold from the fridge and have salads more than soup these days.  Being lazy has become a way of life here.  I've decided to just enjoy it and not fight it.

Hopefully you all are finding ways to keep cool where you are.   

Happy lazy days to you!

Staying mostly indoors has been my way of keeping cool. However, the lack of activity is playing havoc with the waistline. Blessings

I like the shade when possible with a cool drink. The most relaxing is th A/C, but you know how noisy the RV A/C's are.
BUT Life is good! (HUGS)
