Heat Wave

So, it’s been hot in my neck of the woods, and I have been doing what I always do . . . just adapt to deal with it.

Sure it’s hot but in reality there is little that I can do about it. I suppose that I could run my generator and then run my air conditioner.

That, however, would be a foolish waste of resources . . . and only offer a temporary reprieve. 

It would also get me used to the cooler temperatures. Only to then be hit with the wall of heat once the air conditioner is over.

My tactic is to make/find some shade and hope for at least a light breeze. As well as, yes, wear as little as modesty will allow (and yes in as private as possible).

So I open: the door, all the windows and both vents and just let the breeze blow through. (Yes, I do keep myself hydrated by drinking water.)

I find that my body finds a natural balance and I just seem to get used to it. There is nothing I can do about the weather, so I have no choice but to adapt.

By hiding out in air conditioning, I am not doing myself any favours. 

After all, the one thing that is a constant is I am perpetually outside(ish). The temperature of my house is pretty much the same as the outside. 

I heat it a bit in winter, just to take the edge off, but I do not blast the heat. That would be a waste of resources.

My life is about conserving as much resources and cash as possible, in order to get through this savings-building phase as quickly as possible.

That means toughing it out through the heat, or the cold.

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
