I was out west yesterday...It must have been close to 40 degrees.
The sun beating down with the smoking heat rising off the tarmac was truly oppressive. I felt embarrassed at the thought of being compelled the way of the stereotypical asian chick in that I might just have to start carrying sun parasols...
Last night was a trying exercise in sleep-one of many of late. Not only must we contend with uncomfortable ambient temperature, stagnant airflow and humidity but the air is also thick with smoke from bushfire.
I am truly tempted to get an air conditioning unit, however I am wary of the way my power bills will spike if I do.
So I am staying indoors within the shady, relatively cool confines of my home...I guess I'll get a couple more films under my belt- not very productive- but it is too hot to do much else!
Yesterday I found myself thinking, oh well at least if this old soul business is correct, hopefully I won't have to witness the truly extreme stages of global warming ending life on this planet....ergh who wants to baked like a bacon chip- what a way to go!
The only real upside to the Summer is the smorgasboard of fruits I am spoilt with- for breakfast today I had fresh figs and cherries. My other favourites are blueberries, mangoes, watermelon, golden peaches, white nectarines and red papayas! Miam miam!
