The children don't get to play outside for more than half an hour at a time and only in the morning, the dog goes out long enough to do his business and I try not to go out at all, at least until the sunburn on my shoulders heals. Thank you, Lord for A/C!! I think I would have had to move out this tin can in the middle of an open field if we didn't have it. I am content though. Better +44*C/111*F with the humidity than -44*C/-47*F with the wind chill factor. I know a lot of people who say they prefer cold to hot since you can dress for the cold, but I think that's crap.
Cold is worse, who really wants to be so bundled up they can barely move and out in snow that is too cold to pack well. Skiing isn't even fun at that temperature. At least in the heat, you can still go outside from here to there without spending half an hour getting your stuff on and warming your car up so it can run properly. In the heat, you can go the beach and sit in the shade. We won't even begin to list all the yummy things to eat and drink in the heat either.
Also, if your A/C is good and your Mr. insists on keeping it at a temperature he would freak out about in the winter, you can even knit with wool! Like this mitt for Girly with an extra long cuff. I'm using Freedom wool from Twilley's of Stamford. Soft and beautiful yarn.
Also a variation on the Ballband with wool sock yarns. I'm hoping this will work out for a new pattern idea.
Here's to you, now I am off to make myself a nice yogurt, wheat germ and berries smoothie for breakfast. Mmm, cold and nutritious! Good thing the Mr. is working so I can turn the A/C up to a normal human temperature.
