What a relief. After 3 days of sweltering heat, the hunt for an AC, the lack of sleep because the AC is roaring rather than purring, the temperatures have finally dropped to something anyone can live with – without AC. A nice windy breeze, the first night of full sleep and it is still the weekend. I am not sure how people in the South do it. Anything outdoors must be done before 7 or 8am and then it is a hop hop hop from air-conditioned house to car to coffeeshop to work with a few warm-ups in between which must feel pleasant.
My lunch plate was easy – thanks to the ‘whole foods salad bar’ in my fridge. Mixed greens from the FM, black garbanzo beans, cherry tomatoes, curried hummus and yellow cucumber salad topped with balsamic vinaigrette and a few blue cheese crumbles.
