So, we turned the A/C on yesterday. It’s only May — ugh! As usual, we’re keeping our thermostat set pretty conservatively (around 80° F), but still! May.
In other confessions/not-green news, we walked at the Botanical Garden this morning, but we drove there I felt pretty tired and blah, and a little light-headed, not really up to the biking, so I conceded to using the car. It was that or not going, and I am glad we went, if disgusted at the use of a car for an easy 2 mile or less trip.
Finally, a huge chunk of ice to help you think cool thoughts during the hot weather: this baby, which fell at our apartment during the storms last Wednesday, was almost 4 inches in diameter:
Matthew saved a few of these in our freezer, and I’ll be using them for practice contractions this week. (For our childbirth prep homework, we do practice contractions, squeezing ice in our hands to simulate pain.)
