The Spa

Many of you have been blogging about your love of fall. Suddenly, your days are getting shorter, cooler, and more delightful. You are planning your fall outfits with cardigans, pants, and scarves. You have turned off the central air, and are basking in the coolness of the breeze as it sweeps through your homes. WHATEVER.

This is Texas ya'll, and while the rest of the country is enjoying a change of seasons, we are still dealing with over 100 degree temps here. I wake up and run at 5:00 AM, and when I get back I am drenched in sweat because its already 88 degrees with 90% humidity. I jump in the coldest shower, and I attempt to cool my body off enough to stop sweating. By the time I leave the sun has come up and I walk to the train station my entire back is damp. I cool off in the office a/c and when I leave, and walk to the train, its well over 100 and I continue to sweat bullets. Basically, I hardly stop sweating all day.

In an attempt to cool off, P and I splurged and bought ourselves a spa. Technically its for the dogs, but I use it too. Its so comfortable, and relaxing. Sometimes, I have to pour the water out because its been sitting in the sun all day and burns my skin, so I have to refill it.

Is it still hot where you live? How do you stay cool?

I think fall in Maine starts about the second week in August :-) It has been really nice up here though, 40's and 50's at night and upper 70's low 80's during the day. Even though I can't stand how cold it is during the winter, I'm not sure I could deal with the heat in the summer if I lived someplace else!

I love the hot weather and don't try to cool off at all cause I know that in a few short months winter will be hitting Western PA and we'll be cool enough!

Miss reading your blog! Hoping to get back to blogging!!
