I know there are a lot of people who have conditioned themselves to work in the heat, but neither Tony and I are one of them. However, I have the more flexible schedule so this time the job fell to me. That doesn't mean I was looking forward to it, though. After lunch I washed the dishes, put away the laundry, and cleaned up the day's cat hair tumble weeds, but eventually I ran out of excuses. It was time to implement a Keep Cool Outside plan and get outside.
There were three parts to the plan. First I dumped ice in a pitcher and filled it with water. Then I did the same thing with a bucket. Finally I found a hat from Hubby Tony's stash I was confident he didn't care about.

When I was finished cutting I dumped the rest of the bucket water onto a plant, and carried the pitcher of water inside. Fifteen minutes of sitting under the ceiling fan in the family room and drinking water cooled me off and gave me the energy to go upstairs and take a shower.
