We finally got the heat the rest of the country has been lamenting about for a few weeks already – hopefully it won’t last long, considering we are in the Pacific Northwest, where people typically think we’re always dealing with rain. No rain in the next 10 day forecast, yo!
Since we don’t have central air, we’ve been strategically using fans and opening and closing windows as the sun moves around to keep cooler air moving through the house. We even put a box fan in one of the kitchen windows blowing out, and that seems to be doing the trick quite nicely.
I do believe it also helps that our house was built in 1930, as they used to build houses way better back then (better construction materials, better insulation, etc.) and the fact that we’re on a hill that helps us get a good cross breeze through the house. Of course our master bedroom gets the blazing hot afternoon sun for hours – so I did buy a window A/C so we could sleep better at night. So far, so good! How are you all handling the heat?
Today is an extra special day – it’s my best friend Peggy’s birthday! We’ve been friends for about 28 years now – I sure miss living in the same state as her, though, because we have so much fun together! At least now that we’re back in Washington, her being in Nevada isn’t as far as when we were living in Pennsylvania. I’m plotting a trip to see her later this summer for sure! Meanwhile here’s a picture of the two of us at a hockey game in 1993:
Since I’m writing this post past my bedtime, I’m going to go right into the funnies, m’kay?
Speaking of bedtime… I thought this was funny:
For all my cat lover friends, you’ll get as much of a kick out of this as I did:
Not only did they look like tiny brontosaurus, but it took me a few minutes to realize they aren’t cats.
This one definitely gave me a chuckle:
I may have already shared this one, but it’s still funny:
This would be my hubby’s GPS (shhh! don’t tell him I said that):
This cracked me up:
Anyone with messy kids and husband (I’m not alone in that, right? Right?!) this is hilarious:
And finally, I’m going to leave this right here for you:
