Gotta Love My A/C

...and it works!

The extended time interval of abnormally and uncomfortably heat wave doesn't appear to be parting any time soon. The nights never dropped below 75° with the days in 100°, it's difficult not to turn on the A/C. We finally gave in--first time this year. Oooooh, it's sweet to be COOL again (even for a few hours set at 75°) without having to drive to the library or a tea house--not that it's a bad idea...just a nice option to stay home once in awhile. Nothing's better on a hot summer's day in Bend than a wild ride down the river!

Suggestive actions you should take to prepare for the heat:
NEVER LEAVE CHILDREN OR PETS IN A PARKED CAR: Temperature can raise to 135 ° in less than 10 minutes, which can cause death to children or pets. If you see a child or pet left unattended in a parked car, you should call 9-1-1 and alert authorities.
SLOW DOWN. Strenuous activities should be reduced, eliminated, or rescheduled to the coolest time of the day. Individuals at risk should stay in the coolest available place, not necessarily indoors.
DRESS FOR SUMMER. Lightweight, light-colored clothing reflects heat and sunlight, and helps your body maintain normal temperatures.
DRINK PLENTY OF WATER. Your body needs water to keep cool. Drink plenty of fluids even if you don't feel thirsty.
DON'T GET TOO MUCH SUN. Sunburn makes the job of heat dissipation that much more difficult.

Gotta yard waste, or is it my hubby, is calling out for my attention. Enjoy the glorious weekend.

DREAM...EXPLORE...AND DISCOVER! (stop by here to see what I've been creating)!
