My Mood: I'm Melting....
Default

My appetite disappears at the drop of a hat, but the heat totally kills it. And it gets my insomnia kicked into high gear, so most summers I seem to survive on 3-4 hours sleep a day and maybe 200 calories, would be less if it wasn't for the DH and mom pretty much forcing me to eat. I've even tried the meal replacement things a few times, but the brain never seems to "hey stupid, put something in your stomach" and they end up forgotten till they expire.

At our house we have an evaporative cooler, not air conditioning and although it hasn't been too humid, it's not as effective in this excessive heat. I've been laying low this week.

Also, I think humid heat is far worse as when you sweat, it sticks to you and doesn't evaporate as quickly.
Evaporative cooling?! Oh wow! I know what that is! ☹️

Time to drive up Mount Lemon. That is what I always did. And cherry pie ala mode at the top. That is if the area has finally recovered from the fire about a decade ago and the pie shop still exists.

There's a fire up on Mount Lemmon. I think they even closed the road to go up there. I think the pie shop is open.

One of my friends has a portable a/c that she is going to let me borrow. It's been dry here so the evap cooler is doing fine. No monsoons in sight yet and the dew point is down too. Or at least it was.
