It's hot! No, it is beyond hot and moved into sweltering. Know what Kitty dislikes more than hot, humid days? Any guesses? You got it!--hot, humid nights....
Last night the thermostat never dipped below 85. I had two fans by my bed, facing in opposite directions turned on high, with me in the middle of them. Damn near tried Sam's wet sheet suggestion.... but Kitty does not like to be wet (unless she is in a pool or ocean ;) It took me a couple hours to get to sleep, but eventually I did.
Had a fan in Gracie's window, turned on high and another one on her floor to keep a steady (warm) breeze on her. Her bedroom is the hottest in the house because she only has two windows facing west. The rest of the rooms have at least three windows for cross ventilation.
I love this house, but installing any type of air conditioning or central air would be pointless unless we replaced all of the windows. That's not going to happen anytime soon. Besides, I can't imagine the costs of cooling this place down! We have oil heat, so keeping it warm in the winter is costly enough.
We're supposed to hit 95 again today, Sunday and Monday~who asked for this isht, anyway? I hope my summer loving friends get this stuff heading their way very, very soon :) You asked for it, not me~so why is it hanging around my house?
That's okay, five more months until cold weather hits~think I can hang in there until then. What I am stressing over is it is only June. July and August, the hottest months, still to come. Do you think because we never hit 90 last summer, that we won't get any temps under that for thisone? If so, you'll find Kitty hitchhiking to Alaska ;)
Going to find some shadows to lay in.... hope no one melts.
