The Dog Days Of Summer

6 thoughts on “The Dog Days Of Summer”

  1. I escaped the Chicago heat by heading to LA in July (which was only about 70-ish degrees..lovely!) for 2 weeks and now in Eugene. I’ve been enjoying a much cooler summer on the road than those 100-degree days in the Midwest the last 5-6 weeks. Soo not a hot weather girl. Just keep thinking of that place in the mountains next year…🙂 Hope you can find a few ways to stay cool until the heat lets up!

  2. Ice cream milkshakes, root beer floats or blood orange sorbet. ( I really, really miss real Italian gelato.) Oh, and lots of icy, ice tea. I try not to run my AC even though I have it, too much $$$. I have a 2-story house and I open the windows upstairs and a few downstairs and use convection (hot air rises/cool air sinks) to cool the house. Plus I put up some sunscreen fabric on the deck to block the sun on the kitchen which faces due west. The downstairs stays pretty cool but the upstairs heats up in the late afternoon which is nice in the winter. Can you use earplugs when you sleep?

  3. I do use earplugs but they only help a little. Last night for some reason the stupid place across the street was closed and it was lovey!!

    I have been drinking a LOT of ice tea with lemon granita. Your comment reminds me, I need to eat some blood orange sorbetto immediately.

  4. It’s hot as hades here in ZH too, but my work building is at least air-conditioned. I get to work earlier now as it’s cooler to shower in the very early mornings without sweating a bucket as soon as you dry off. So yeah for my boss. Otherwise, after work, head straight home, pack my bikini and walk through the woods down to the lake of Zürich till it gets dark, then I head home to prepare for work tomorrow…Not a sun person as I suffer from “sun allergies”, so can’t wait for my favourite season: Autumn!
