My apartment is on the North side of the building. The sun never hits my windows. I have a two story window that used to be the big front doors to the building. I just went to look outside and put my hand on the glass. It was HOT!. Our hightest today was 96F. Part of the City lost their power. I feel sorry for those folks. thank heavens for our AC.

I am not only an orphan, I am the last one of my family that is still alive. No cousins, aunts, uncles, siblings, parents. No one. I am the Grand Matriarch of the family. A title I never wanted. Now it is time for the next generation to take over. I am too tired to do the honors. I am the only one who had a large family. My sister had four children. I had five. Everyone else had one, maybe two. Most had none.

Thanks Sweetie! I hope you have a good fan! Can you get a mini split? They're the go-to A/C in Mexico, efficient and inexpensive.

Hrm, do you have a fan? Place it behind a bowl of ice water. I think that is the trick I heard of once.

Today I baked more cupcake recipes, I may have found my go-to, it was one that I tweaked and made my own. If they stay moist for a couple of days, I'll call it a success.

Just finished shampooing the carpets on the main level, I hate that job and was going to hire someone to do it, but I figured that I shouldn't be so lazy and do it myself!

Isn't that called a swamp cooler? I think I heard of that once.
