Sweeping The Garage

Sweeping the garage

Don't ask me why I chose to sweep the garage floor this morning. I thought the weather was colder today but it did not take long before I was sweating. So, I did not do a perfect job, but at least, it does look a bit neater. I started to feel too weak so I had no choice but to end the work. Now, relaxing on Mylot and with the A/C on.

The heat really can take a toll on a person. A cooler day will come when you can sweep the garage comfortably. I should work in the gardens, but too hot out there.

Your body always lets you know when you are overdoing it. This weather has been very draining.

It was cool in the air here and it is now starting to get really hot outside, At the animal shelter they have the a/c on so that was nice.They found homes for all the puppies that were dropped off.

I was fine when I started, but gradually, I could feel that it was not a good idea to keep going.

There are certain things that we have to do and they can not be postponed too long and cleaning is one of them. Glad that you managed to finish it.

Sometimes we decide to do some things that seem easy but then it gave us a lot of work. Glad you managed to finish the garage

There would be nothing for me but a hot shower and my mattress after that.

You mean a "cold" shower after all that sweating.

@marlina Hot and hot enough to burn my skin. I won't take a cold shower unless there is no way to boil that water. Never..

I am moving out unnecessary stuff from the garage. Yesterday I got all the electronic things that do not work anymore and we brought them to the closest electronic store to recycle. Tomorrow will be card boxes day.

I have been getting rid of quite a few things in the garage so far, and only have a few things more to get rid of. It will be a lot easier to keep in good order after.

@marlina It is even dangerous too keep so many things inside the garage. I told this to my husband, now he is helping.

@LadyDuck , Our garage was not too bad. It is just that these days, I want to minimalize our life as much as possible.

@Hannihar That is what I have to do these days. I used to go all the way and never stopped until I was done. Those days are gone!

Why not bringing the fan close to you? Problem solved.

@marlina the fan is big, an industrial type, and it is noisy. the number 1 speed is too strong, that if it is near me, i might not be able to hear TV.

Nothing like a little A/C and fan after doing a chore. I did the lawn yesterday and it was so hot and humid I needed a shower and still have the other half of the lawn to do today

@dgobucks226 , Yes, it is very tough to do the lawns on hot and humid days. A shower is a lovely reward !

I braved the heat and swept the porches on Thursday. It was way too hot out there. I did the best I could before I melted and rushed back inside.
