How on earth are you surviving this Ontario heat wave without air conditioning?! I've been a reader for years and I'm almost positive I've figured out that you live somewhere in Northern Ontario!
Let's pretend it hasn't been exactly a year since I started these question and answer posts, m'kay!?! So about a year ago we did indeed have a crazy heat wave and as luck would have it we are sitting right in the middle of another one. The temperature in my living room as I am typing this is a comfortable (um, not really) 84 degrees, 95 with the current humidity.
How are we surviving? Barely. We are melting! I will absolutely not complain since I love summer, sunshine, swimming, popsicles, and the smell of suntan lotion. However with no air conditioning, two measly fans, and a lack of air circulation in the house, it's kinda sticky. It reminds me of that time we took a trip to Mexico in August (that was insane).
Since I'm totally not complaining about the heat, I will complain about the window situation in our house thanks to the previous owners. In the front portion of our home that includes the living room, dining room, sun room, and front entry there are ten windows. Wanna take a guess at how many actually open?
Two. TWO. TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I guess they tried to save money when replacing all the windows. Needless to say the air in here gets pretty stale and stifling with no cross-breeze. We can open one window at the back of the dining room and one in the corner of the sunroom. Neither of the living room windows open. Boooooo.
So yeah, it's getting hot in here (Hi Nelly).
The only thing that makes me feel better about the whole thing right now is that one of our tiny fans is adorable. It was one of those great Homesense finds. :)
P.S. I think I only have a few questions left to answer. Maybe by next summer? Heh heh heh.
P.S.S. It's 9 p.m. and Alex just zipped out to get a late-night pizza. How fun is that?!?
P.S.S.S. Dear Cute Reader, you were right. We're up in Northern Ontario. With the blueberries and black bears. ;)
