Where I live, right now it is 87 degrees Fahrenheit but it feels like 95 degrees. I’m sitting in my home office with the light turned off and the window open. Yes, I said the window is open. This is probably not the first time you’ve thought I am crazy. There are many reasons I don’t have my air conditioning on at this moment.
-It saves electricity and lowers my carbon footprint (all about saving the world, yo!)
-It saves me money on my electric bill (heck yeah)
-We enjoy having fresh air in our home.
-I enjoy pretending I’m Amish (ok, not really)
We’ve been doing many things to keep cool so far. We relax on the front porch with a book on the swing, play in the kiddie pool with the dogs, and even have quickies. There’s nothing like a cool shower when you’ve been out gardening or playing with the pooches. If it gets to the point where it’s unbearable, you better believe I’m turning the AC on. There’s no sense in me sweating my buns off and being miserable.
Have you turned your AC on yet or are you sweating your buns off like me?
