Right now here in Oregon we are having the worst heat wave in history. It is suppose to hit 113-115 today. All I can think of is how to survive this heat. Most of us don't have AC because we haven't needed it in the past. In my house we have two window units and one nice fan, which is keeping my house in the 80's. All I can think of is to keep the house dark and remain still. Not much movement is happening except to cool off by a fan. It almost feels like the beginning of the pandemic where it was so quiet and no one was about. I was at the market at 7AM just so I wouldn't have to go out in the heat of the day.
Home again and popsicles made of fruit juice and coconut water, plus dinner will be gazpacho (cold soup). The gazpacho is chilling in the refrigerator along with a couple cheeses and fruit.
The meaning of still (adjective): not moving or making a sound.
The only movement was the bees busy gathering pollen for the honey sold at the farm.
Yes, we came home with honey and cherries.
What do you do to stay cool on a hot summer day?
Do you find yourself sitting still?
PS: Sorry I didn't have a second post last week. I just couldn't think of anything, but remaining still and cool.
