I love summer. I really do! It's my favorite season. I love how green and leafy the trees are. I love setting up my patio furniture on the deck and enjoying breakfast or dinner in the shade of the striped umbrella. I love napping in the hammock. I love golfing. I love
But one thing I don't love is the sweat. It's unavoidable, living someplace like Utah, where you are 5000 feet closer to the sun, and where the desert climate makes everything bake during the day. I could deal with it if there was more of a respite from it inside. Unfortunately, I live in a house with only partial A/C. We had the Mr. Slims put in on one half of the house 2 years ago. It helps...if you sleep in Daphne's room, the playroom, or the kitchen (which I've considered. It does have a big island.) Our bedroom, however, plus the dining room, living room, and Beck's room, have no A/C. There is a swamp cooler upstairs, but on a really hot day, or during a really hot night (when I'm too paranoid to leave the windows open to let the swamp cooler do its work), it's not enough. I just sweat. And sweat. And sweat. And then I get sticky. And then I sweat some more.
I really hate sweat. Love summer, hate sweat.
I would say my favorite season was spring, if it would last more than 8 days in Utah. But since we had snow last week, and 95 degree temps yesterday, I just can't vote for fickle, fleeting spring.
So summer gets my vote for favorite season of the year. But can someone just do something about the heat???
