I’ve been trying so hard to not complain about the heat, but man would I be glad if it would just cool down already, even if only by 5 degrees. Eric and I recently realized how much this heat has been stealing our summer away. We normally love being outside- biking, lounging in the hammock, touring the nearby botanical gardens or zoo, but this summer there’s been far too little of that. I feel like we haven’t cooked much in the last month, we’ve been trying so hard to keep the house cool. The night we canned peach salsa we waited until 11pm to start in hopes of keeping it cooler inside. However, the next week’s forecast gives me hope. I’m over sitting inside near the fan or ac, ready to soak in the sun, despite the temperature. We’ll see if it happens, but I’m certainly going to try a little harder.
