In upstate New York it’s been HOT! So how do we handle it? Here are the Top 5 ways we beat the summer heat this week . . .
ONE: Stick with air-conditioned places—or just bring the air-conditioning with you. My mom stays in the temperature-controlled car while her great-grandsons hang out to talk baseball with her. Any other Yankees fans out there?
TWO: Keep it in perspective. If the dog can smile through the heat, so can we! Here dog expert Dixie shows my niece and nephew how to keep their cool.
THREE: Make yourself a summer treat. Don’t those tomatoes look great? And I really think someone should write an ode to the BLT.
FOUR: Slow life down a little. I took a leisurely walk through town and visited one of my favorite childhood haunts: the Kinderhook Library. They were even having a book sale. I wonder if they still have my old library card . . .
FIVE: When the heat makes you crazy, just go with it. My nephew shows it’s getting to him a bit with this silly photo shoot . . .
Hope that made you smile. Wishing you a happy week, friends!
