Back home, I deemed the weather no longer "iffy" for rain showers, so I hung out the load of colored clothes, a second batch of sheets was started, then a quick meatloaf sandwich was made and I filled a to go, reusable cup with a free to me Sprite and ice, and headed out the door, to attend a meeting at the HS for special needs kidlet, eating as I drove across town. Back from the meeting, I hung the load of sheets out. All was dry and in before supper, which ended up being for 4 with DS # 1 and the GF joining DD and myself. We had pan fried hotdogs in buns, canned baked beans, l/o coleslaw, tossed salad with choice of dressing.
Summer weather is something that we've got to contend with. While I do have A/C units in both my and the twins's bedrooms, the rest of the home doesn't have A/C-unless I wanted to invest some serious $$ in protable units, which I do not wish to do. So, it's the following methods for staying cooler:
Kidlet suffers in the heat, so this is vital. Doors to this area are closed off,
What about the rest of the house?
3 slider units are opened,
but the covered glass section is kept covered over by curtains to keep the sun out
Ceiling fans help to keep the cool air down near us, as the many cross breezes blow through the home.
Lots of cool drinks offered, including iced coffee:
