Keeping Cool

 I feel like summer has finally delivered her marvelous sizzling rays upon us, it only happens for a few glorious months. (if that) So I try to enjoy every moment of it. Even when I'm driving in the car, I like to have the windows down so I feel like I'm on vacation with the heat and the wind blowing in my hair . I reminisce about the hot tropical places I have had the good fortune of visiting. Like Mexico, Nicaragua and all the wonderful Island on our honeymoon cruise. I love every minute of it.


BUT...... at night I like sleeping a little bit on the cool side. Even in the middle of winter I will have my feet uncovered so I feel the cool air just a little bit. One can see the problem that occurs with this sultry weather. But I have come up with the most amazing solution, I was inspired by an oven type thing that we have at work to warm up blankets for patients and my husband who stuck his head in the freezer to cool off. When I witnessed him do that the light bulb went off!

 My Blanket in the FREEZER!
It was pure genius and absolutely delightful when I went to bed last night. 

Now yes, I'm sure that there were smarter people then me who thought of this idea many summers ago but for today only I will bask in my moment of brilliance.

I would love to hear other cleaver ideas on how to keep cool.
Feel free to share.
