How to Survive a Brutally Hot Weekend

Our house has air circulation issues (which are, for better for worse, to be alleviated later this summer, but that's a whole 'nother post), so when the weather gets humid and oppresively hot, our second floor gets and stays painfully uncomfortable, and there's not a whole lot we can do about it. But it's not like spending a lot of time outside in the sun is much of an option either; even in the shade, it's just plain gross!

The solution to this conundrum turned out to be spending most of the day holed up in the family room, curtains shut, alternating between sleeping and watching movies. Any activity that required leaving the house could be done early enough in the morning (Crocker Park Farm Market) or late enough at night (yard work) that the air outdoors bordered on tolerable.

So! I have caught up on sleep, finally seen To Kill a Mockingbird, obtained the most marvelous strawberries from the market, impressed Liz (and myself) with the surprisingly-good Hellboy, entertained the kittens, gotten marvelous heaps of snuggle-time with Liz, and (rather inexplicably) absorbed the sordid saga that is season one of "America's Next Super Model". I blame that last one on the week of brain-melting weather that preceeded it.

The only problem with sleeping all day and being up late at night is the shift back to business hours on Monday; I'm feeling rather zombie-like this afternoon, but at least I'm a happy zombie who had a good weekend.
