Still Sweating It Out

The clouds have mostly gone, so tonight is a bit cooler than the last few nights have been, but the day was the hottest we've had yet this year so it's going to take a long time for the house to cool.

I also feel as though I've stored up so much heat in myself that I wouldn't be cool for a week even if a freak winter storm suddenly turned up. In fact I'd probably be able to heat the house just by breathing. I'm quite sure that when I ate a bite of raw carrot this evening it was cooked before I'd finished chewing it.

Tomorrow, thankfully, is supposed to be about ten degrees cooler than today was, There's an outside chance that I'll survive the week. Odds are better that next week I'll wish that I hadn't.

There's also good news, though: Tonight I hear two crickets chirping. A doubling of the cricket population must be a good sign.
