Wordless Wednesday: Summertime and the Living is Easy


We are having a summer without air conditioning here. It’s not because of the mild weather though — it’s because I am trying to cut down on the electricity we use (summer is our peak usage time) and thus save money. It has the fringe benefits of also being a little kinder to the environment …

… And one that I hadn’t thought of before: we spend more time outside. When you take away the shock of cold air inside and hot air outside, the hot air is way more palatable. Who knew?

    Sounds great – but I could never do it. This summer has been surprisingly pleasant, but those hot muggy days I don’t even step outside my door if I don’t have to. I just feel like I can’t breath, like my lungs aren’t made to take up all that water vapor in the air.
