Blessed Relief!


I am not a hot weather gal – 75, maybe even 80 is my limit.  So almost 10 days of 90’s was really difficult.  I figured it would not last forever and it didn’t.  It is in the 70’s and so much better for all of us.  We didn’t do too badly – it is the early evening until around 3 or 4 in the morning before it cools down that are the most uncomfortable times.

We put the furnace fan on at night, it circulates the cool air in the basement around the rest of the house.  We bought a fan back in May when we thought we would have the floors done.  It was tucked away in Mom’s room and we forgot about it.  Eddie brought it out to the living room and that helped as well.  We kept the windows and doors open – some days we had a breeze, some days it was still.

I found myself sweating in the evening, usually around the time I was ready for bed.  I spent a lot of time wearing a t-shirt and panties when I was home all day – also the minute I came home.  It was not always easy to go to sleep and after a while, I felt worn down.  Now I know we don’t have the really miserably hot weather that other parts of the country are experiencing.  This is what I’ve been experiencing right here.

One reason I haven’t done any posts is because all I wanted to do was whinge about how uncomfortable I was.  I also have been feeling either like a bump on a log or just downright sleepy.  So many are just as uncomfortable or even more , who wants to read my post just  whingeing.  I also haven’t been doing much, this is a time of rest after all the things for Mom and getting the living room done.  Eddie has really been clearing boxes – so many things look strange to us.

Since I have been having knee trouble, I haven’t been down stairs for quite a while – time to check out what Eddie has been doing and what needs to be given away.  I know he has put quite a few boxes out for recycle the past few times – as soon as they empty the wheely bin, it is filled up quite quickly.

I am amazed at the bumper crop of blueberries – the birds have also noticed.  We put the net over the bushes, unfortunately there have been some birds who got trapped inside.  I went to buy 6 more yards of nylon net to put around the bottom and some wooden clothes pins to hold the whole set up together.  Eddie found bricks and a few stones to put around the bottom to keep them out – so far, so good.  Eddie picked a soup bowl full of blueberries and we had a delight bowl each for breakfast this morning.  there are some left that I will put in my yogurt tomorrow morning.

As you see, this is a rather short post – there isn’t a whole lot to report that is of interest.  I have times when I feel more human, then suddenly I am back to just wanting to sleep.  I see that is progress and look forward to more times when I feel I have some energy.

Stay as cool as you can through the hot days – this too will past.
