I honestly don't know what we'd do without air conditioning. While the A/C does remove some of the humidity, it's surprising how much humidity remains in the house, and how it affects my middle-aged body. Even when the temperature is steady in the house, as it is with central A/C, it's really easy to work myself into a hot flash with minimal exertion when it's so humid.
I often wonder what it would be like to live somewhere with dry heat and no humidex. I suppose there is good and bad to both. One thing for sure, my skin doesn't dehydrate the way it would if it were dry.
I notice that even with the constant temperature in the house my dog Barclay is panting more than usual, so I guess it effects him as well. As I write this, the cat just walked past the dog, and as usual, she gave him a hiss, and as usual, he just ignores it good naturedly. One might think that after three years of living together, the cat might give up on the hissing, as it clearly goes unnoticed, but that's just her way, where the dog's concerned.
The pets are both sensing something is about to happen. They seem a bit more alert and excited than usual. And they're right. My daughter is coming home later this week, and the family is expectant and excited and the pets seem to be as well. She lives 300 miles/ 500 km away, so the visits are more rare than they would be if she only lived an hour away. I am really looking forward to this visit, and I hope we have some good quality time to chat and have fun, She does have some events to attend, so she won't be here every day, but we'll have enough time together. We always manage that.
Thinking about the cats, as I was earlier, I always wonder what the attraction is for them with a clean basket of laundry. I'll leave you with a couple of photos of our cat, Q, enjoying some time getting comfy in the clean laundry.
Love to all.
'Til tomorrow, my friends.
