It’s Hot!

I am a big fan of summer. The heat doesn’t bother me, I much prefer it to the winter and the cold. The older I get the less tolerance I have for cold. My husband and I are never at odds about the house being too hot or too cold as many couples are. We both are always cold. Β In the winter we crank up the heat, and in the summer we barely use our air conditioners. This week we are in the midst of Β a heat wave with temps staying in the 90’s. I will admit the humidity doesn’t thrill me, but I just think back to the snowfilled, chilling winter we had this past year and I forget I’m a little sticky.

It was even too hot for this squirrel who found respite on a branch. I was sitting outside reading and amazed that he didn’t move for close to 15 minutes.Β 012

  1. I’m like you, I love the warmth as i am always cold too. I do not sweat easily and I do not like aircons. Sit in the shade read a book , have a drink , I can bear heat very well. πŸ™‚
    Love that squirrel!

  2. This is so interesting (and reading others’ comments)…in my 20s I was always cold. Living in both Southern and Northern California, the temps are pretty easy to deal with. In Sacramento it is very hot in the summer, but dry unless a monsoon from Mexico makes it up here into the mountains. When I hit the big M, I am now ALWAYS hot and I hate it. I need cool or cold air from March to October πŸ™‚

    • I have heard that from a lot of people- not uncommon- those hormones and lack of them wreak havoc! I have always been sensitive to the cold- I can remember as a kid always turning the heat up in the house and getting yelled at for doing it! California weather is my favorite πŸ™‚

  3. If it weren’t for the humidity, I wouldn’t use nearly as much air conditioning, but the humidity has been near 100% every day for the past week and a half. I don’t want it in the bedding and furniture because the next thing we’ll have is mold, which I like even less than snow, if you can imagine that. Snow at least stays outside. The mold will happily take over the house. So air conditioning — and the new, wonderful invention on the A/C — the dehumidify setting!!

  4. Nice post Lisa and great photo of the beauty. I prefer the warm to the heat too, even we now have heatwave no. 3 and no. 4 is on the way. We do also stay in the 90 F +, around 34 C. + here now. Very hot and humid.

  5. maybe it ‘s a squirrel-sloth? I’m with you, I totally dislike the cold… and I wonder that I spent so much time outside in winter … even to remember that time makes me shiver :o) Currently our summer is a little lazy, we got dark clouds and rain from UK :o( my favorite season is fall, you can wear your new boots without looking like a doofus and without the cold :o)
