Outside, we are nearing 95* today. My air conditioning cut off is generally 90* – and I do three cheers if we can make it until July 1 before turning the air on. As pleasant as a nice, cool, humidity-free room feels, Matt and I both prefer airflow, birds chirping and breezes. AC just feels artificial to me – because it is! Plus it costs $$$.
But on really hot days, I turn it on. And my gosh did it feel like night and day when I stepped on the porch for lunch!
I went to Cycle this morning for the first time in ages. It was a nice 50 minute spin – and I was sad to hear that it was my favorite instructor’s last class! After a steamy walk home, I sipped coconut water for a post-workout hydration + replenishment snack.
I also had the brilliant idea to pick lettuce before I showered – which meant no hungry trip to the garden was needed.
I made a salad with the usual dressing combo of honey and oil and salt plus tomatoes, sharp cheddar and some chicken that I defrosted from the freezer from some night’s dinner. Must do this more!
On the side – a few tiny pieces of Red, White + Blueberry bread with just a smidge of nut butter
And a nectarine!! SOOOOO GOOD! One of my all-time favorite fruits.
Such a fun summery lunch with a variety of flavors.
You know what’s funny? That the words “hot” and “cool” are still cool to say. You’d think like “rad” or “tubular” they would have gone out of style!
So, stay cool!
