The Weather Takes A Break!
The temperatures began to fall, albeit it slightly on Sunday, ending heat wave number 4 of the year, and now the humidity is finally following suit. Though still a bit muggy now, I for one am so thankful for a break from the oppressive humidity & heat! I thought what was left of my sanity would break first.
Having bronchitis and a sinus infection (day 11 & counting) as well as hibernating indoors (because of the weather, infections & my body's extreme dislike of hot/humid weather) hasn't helped my spirits (or cabin fever) any.
I think the reason why Summer cooties (colds, sinus infections, bronchitis & the like) seem to go on and on is that, despite air conditioning, it's just too hot for soups, hot teas with honey - many of the nourishing things we comfort ourselves with when we're sick during cooler weather.
I had to postpone July's iv session until August due to the infections and being on antibiotics, so being behind/off schedule with that isn't helping my stamina either. But, I'm making do - doing what I'm able when I'm able and getting out for an hour or two when I can. (See Summer Reading, Summer Mantle and Summer Nights).
How is Summer treating you so far?
