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.  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  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. 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. 🙂
    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 🙂

    • 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 🙂

  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)
