Who Turned up the Heat??
You see we live in a 3 layer brick home. There is no insulation and no we do not have air conditioning. I'm pretty sure if we did we would shut down the entire power grid trying to cool this home down.
Normally if we keep ALL 23 windows shut tightly and covered we have a 3 day window before the outside temperature equals the inside.
Well it has been so hot and humid the last two days that our inside upstairs temperature was 80F last night, not including humidity..blech. I normally don't complain about weather but it was a little adjustment to the 60F we slept in two nights prior.
This is me DYING on our front porch attempting to hang laundry. Did you know that if you put a porch into an L shape, line it with brick and face the direct afternoon sun you create and OVEN? I'm not joking when I say the thermostat on the window behind me read 42C!!! I'm pretty sure I did not sweat that much running my Half Marathon the other day ;)
Oh Anne of Green Gables would have been proud of me yesterday. After all...they did not EVER have air conditioning options. Or my mothers fabulous Salt Water pool that we tested out yesterday ;)
Bring on Summer! Me and my straw hat can endure :)
