Today we are re-posting Toni's wonderful prompt, so that everyone has a chance to see it link and participate. Toni is taking a much deserved break today, but will be by to comment on linked posts. We hope everyone has a great 4th of July. Be safe and stay cool everyone!
The hot days of summer are near. Already here it is in the 90's. I am already plotting my plans to stay cool - other than staying inside with the air conditioning. I am not one of those who enjoy the heat - I prefer the cold and snow of winter!
When I do my daily walk, I go out early in a hat and with a bottle of iced water. I do my shopping early in the morning as well. I keep chunks of watermelon in the refrigerator for munching, cool showers during the day, and I dress in thin cotton dresses. I cook in the cool of the day as well and use my slow cooker. Jugs of lemonade and iced tea and water take up space in the refrigerator.
What do you do to keep cool? Dip in the river or pool? Do as the Japanese do and eat noodles with ice cubes in the noodles? Popsicles or Italian ices? Reading in the shade under a tree?
