I truly don’t know what happened to Spring this year! I think it got lost on its way to Utah….. or got a little mixed up with what time of year it really was….. we surely didn’t have too many ‘Spring’ like days!
Let me define ‘Spring’ like in my book. 65-75 degree weather with a little breeze blowing, some days partially cloudy with chance of rain. Maybe even a little rain. Well… Spring had its own definition this year…. it was a very cold, wet Spring with very few days of nice weather. There were a few…. but not many. Well….. now Summer is officially here. And it’s decided to make it official.
I went to the pool on Tuesday for about an hour. It was pretty warm, but still quite pleasant. Yesterday I decided to sit out on our deck while I filed my fingernails. I was probably only there for 10 min….. 15 min max. I came in the house dripping wet! The sweat was running down my face and into my eyes, which doesn’t help when you have makeup on! Today…. I went to the pool again. For about an hour. I was convinced I’d have to get in the pool to cool off because it’s very warm today, but luckily there was a just enough breeze blowing to barely keep me from overheating. However, I felt quite heat exhausted when I got up to leave. Had to come home and sit in the cool air for a while. I was sure grateful I had it!
Do you remember the days before central air? I do…. Of course, we had a swamp cooler on our roof and it was definitely better than nothing….but not as nice as central air. I am so grateful to have central air! What a difference it makes! We are so blessed and spoiled in this country with things like that! So many people have nothing at all to cool them off except maybe a paper fan or a dip in a body of water! I can’t even imagine what people did before air conditioning was invented. I think about the clothes that women and men wore back then and the extreme hot temperatures they wore them in and I just can’t wrap my head around it! I guess my divine maker knew what a Princess I was when he sent me to live in this time period instead of an earlier one!
I’m grateful and blessed to live in a nice home with central air and to be able to pay the bill for it! Even though it gets ridiculously high….. I don’t know what I’d do without it! I hope I never have to find out!
I am Grateful! How are you?
