The heat really rolled in this weekend with back-to-back days of triple temps! Whew! It’s been hot. However, this is my first summer as an Oregonian with central air. That’s a first in 22 years. And on days with this kind of heat, I definitely don’t take it for granted. Our home is a triple story townhome (kind of like a row house) and we would’ve been sweltering without it. However, I have spent so many summers desperate to cool down, that it feels a little strange to be so comfortable when I know it’s blistering out.
All talk of A/C aside, we spent plenty of time out and about over the last few days, and I employed many of my summer favorites in an attempt to stay cool.
