I haven't been doing much lately because the summer heat drains my energy. I am the opposite of solar powered. I do not tolerate heat well. It makes me feel cranky and gives me a headache. I AM TIRED OF BEING HOT.
Last week was busy at work. This week will be busy, too... but I might as well be at the office because my home air conditioner has gone kaput. I want to break down and cry. Of everything in my house that could break, the air conditioner is the worst for me.
No heat? Gives me a chance to wear a sweater.
No hot water? I can heat water on the stove.
No running water? I know how to flush a toilet with a 1/2 gallon bucket.
No internet? I can read books.
No electricity? I can read books by flashlight or candlelight.
No air conditioning? I'm miserable. Sweaty, gross, cranky and miserable.
So I sit here in front of the fan with a cold towel around my neck and another on my legs. To help cool my core, I'm using a package of frozen peas as a lap desk. Aaaaah... cool and refreshing.
I wish I had 100 packages of frozen peas to sleep on.
That's how this princess likes her peas: frozen and on top of the mattress.
Yeah... I think my brain has overheated.
