It's Just Too Warm
May 11, 2018 7:20am CST
I like to wake up naturally, but this morning I wasn't so lucky. I went to bed feeling fairly pleasant. We had our ceiling fan on over our bed. I woke up about 5:00 this morning feeling all icky and sticky. Our home was already starting to warm up with the summer heat that has arrived. We are trying to be conservative with our central air , but it will become more of a challenge as our Mississippi heat climbs this week. Normally I would spend a lot of time in my parents pool to stay cool, but we may not open it this summer , because of my parents health. I need to be with them to take care of them and we're not sure if they are well enough to get in the pool this year. Especially my mama. She is very wobbly and I don't know if she would even know what a pool is. What do you do to stay cool ? I started my day off with a big cup of ice water and will take a cool shower soon. I hope that you all have a great day.

In Hangzhou,it's very hot too.When the sun rises,it feels like i'm living near the volcano.Even in night,My laptop is till hot like a roasting chicken.i can't use this laptop for a long time.As an Otaku,it's really annoying me. At my home,we have no pool and lake to swim.Because Chinese water in our hometown is very dirty that no fish lives here.So we have to used the Fan to cool down.I hate the sound of fan,but i hate the heat of these days more. now i'm listening the girl's song,i found it's a good way to keep mind calm.

I am enjoying the cool rainy mornings here lately. I know that heat is coming up. I keep the house as closed up as possible during the day. Try to only use the A/C during the hottest part of the day. That is about 3p. til 5p.

Well, since we haven't a clue how to set the thermostat that has 13 buttons for this, that and the other, our heat and air conditioning go on automatically. I have the air conditioner and furnace checked each spring, and a nice young fellow sets the thermostat for us. We have tried to follow the multitude of steps to start the darn thing, but we always mess it up.

I'm with you on that. Here in New York, we went from temps in the 30's and 40's to suddenly 60's 70's and even hit 80s. Usually, in the springtime, I enjoy opening all the windows We had such hot days we ended up closing them early in the morn to keep it cool all day. My daughters want to air conditioner on but I said a firm no. It's too early. We just started spring. We've had some uncomfortable night's twice now. Please God let me get through May at least with my windows open. I love the fresh air circulating through the house. All natural is what I love best. I tend to start the day off with a bagel or a fruit smoothie. Though I have to admit it would have to be 100 F before I took a cool shower. I love nice hot showers. I find them relaxing, releases tension in muscles and downright cleansing.
