Life … You Gotta Love It: Simply Too Sizzling

There’s no denying what we’re all pondering: It’s simply too darn scorching! And there appears to be no finish in sight.

No less than, we’re so significantly better off than the poor Europeans. They’re experiencing their hottest summers ever on file. There are fires all over the place. Throughout Europe, as of Tuesday, greater than 1,500 folks have died from the warmth.

I see photos of the fires in Southern France, and it virtually makes me cry. What a beautiful place – one of many prettiest on this planet, at the very least as a lot of the world as I’ve seen.

And woe to the poor Londoners and others within the British lands. Apparently, they haven’t any air-con. They by no means wanted it previously. Now, they’d most likely pay greater than 1,000 euros for a used window air conditioner. I really feel sorry for all of them, together with these in Spain and Portugal, the place temperatures and fires are equally dire.

Thank heavens I discovered a person who appeared pleased to cease by and cart my heavy, outdated used window air conditioner inside and set it up for me. It had sat on the porch for at the very least two years, ready for a person to cease by. Now, if I have to (gotta take into consideration these electrical payments), I can flip it on, shut the doorways to the eating and sitting rooms, and let ‘er rip. It’s noisy, however that’s the least of my worries. It drowns out the continuously yipping canine who lives close by.

I couldn’t convey myself to go to Covington for my many errands this week. I knew it could be near insufferable. I all the time have a listing of six or seven stops I have to make. By the point I do all that (it contains, in fact, lunch), it’s the most popular a part of the day. I discover it odd that Covington temps are all the time at the very least 10 levels hotter than right here. As I drive again up the mountain towards dwelling, I watch the temperature gauge on the dashboard drop, virtually mile by mile. By the point I get again to Sizzling Springs, it’s “solely” about 82, and I resolve I can stay with that and never complain.

I’ll admit, I spend many of the day, if not all of it, in my pajamas. I simply stand up, become a brand new pair as my “day garb,” and go about what little enterprise I’ve inside the home or on the screened porch. Why? Properly, pajamas are the best garments I’ve, and I’ve fortuitously collected a variety of pajamas over time.

Positive, the t-shirts or tops could also be holey, however who cares? Nobody will see me. And, if somebody occurs to cease by (which they not often do), I’ll simply grin sheepishly as I clarify why I’m nonetheless in my pajamas at 5 within the afternoon.

Too unhealthy I’m not of the ilk who wears her pajamas out in public. I do know there are lots of who don’t appear to thoughts traipsing into Walmart of their pajamas, the cuffs usually dirty and dragging the bottom.

I’ve worn my slippers out in public, however that was a mistake. I all the time put on slippers in the home – by no means do I’m going barefoot. Every so often, although, I overlook about them and don’t look down to find I’m sporting them till I’m midway to Covington. Hey – they’ve indoor/out of doors soles, and may go in a pinch.

I’m spending these too-hot days on the porch, studying and consuming and dozing off sometimes. In cool, free pajamas, and the omnipresent slippers. I’m going nowhere. And, I gotta love that!

Keep as cool as you’ll be able to!
