It has been a hot Summer. I am not a hot weather person. OK, after a while I do acclimate and can actually run and do other activities when it is hot (if not too humid), but there are limits. Sleeping is one of those huge limits – I do not sleep well in the heat.
I don’t have AC in my house in new Hampshire. Why should I for the handful of uncomfortable days? Well, this year it was more than a handful. Still, most of the time I was OK. I still slept, if not great, with fans running all night. But there were a few weeks when it stayed hot and humid all night and even fans weren’t enough. There have been too many sleepless nights!
The last few days, even though we hit a high in the mid 80s F (27 – 30 C) it got down to the 40s F! (8 or 9 C). Perfect sleeping weather! Sure it’s a bit cool, but that’s what blankets are for. And the house was still in the 70s F (20s C). I sleep next to an open window, so even if it was warm inside, I still had that cool air blowing on me. Heaven!
So that was my smile for the week, weather cool enough to sleep!
What made you smile this week?
If you haven’t seen it, here is a little background to The Weekly Smile as well as some quick guidelines.
So, what made you smile this week? Write about it and post on the link-up (or click the little blue frog below). While you’re there, read what everyone else is smiling about! And come back to it later, if last week is any indication new smiles will be added daily!
Note – the weekly smile runs Wednesday Morning to Wednesday morning. I post in the morning (Eastern US) and put up the link usually between 7 and 8 AM EST. I also try to post on Sunday as a reminder. People can and do join throughout the week.
