Happy Friday! Here in New Jersey it is expected to be 98 degrees (and feel like 107). It’s been in the 90′s and humid all week, and I don’t think I have ever been so thankful to have central air conditioning. I don’t like to use the A/C if I can help it, and when I do turn it on, I keep it at 80 degrees, so that it’s not running constantly. And still, walking into the 80-degree house after picking wineberries in the 100-degree yard feels a-MAZ-ing.
I hope, if you are experiencing a heatwave where you are, that you have someplace to keep cool. Your local library would be a good choice. Not only can you beat the heat, but you can spend a few hours enjoying a good book. Perfection!
