Ah, Summer

"Ah, Summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it." (Russell Baker)

I'm having night sweats. Justin sleeps with a blanket, and I wake up dieing of heat. But in the morning I can turn off the window unit and keep it off until after noon. (Oh, to have a well insulated apartment, and no worries about an energy bill.) Today wasn't so bad. The apartment is still cool (and I'm still fully clothed). I'm even considering using the oven to make dinner since I am plum out of microwavable meal ideas. We've had microwaved baked potatoes, canned soup, chili, nachos, tortillas and cheese. I'm craving cookies... but repulsed by the idea of having the oven on for that long.

Do crock pots work? I'm still not a total convert to the crock pot, but it's becoming more and more a viable option.

Yeah, Italian Beef in the crock pot.

Good thing you have a window unit to help out a little. I can't imagine the blistering heat without something to provide a little relief.

Poor Brecken :(

I'm reminded of your telling Justin that one day he'd have to buy you a lovely big back yard surrounded by very tall 'neighbour's eyes' proofed fences. There was a reason for the tall fences, but I won't mention it here... haha! :)
