Now that Summer has officially begun here in the northern hemisphere, the summer heat is in full swing. There isn’t much you can do about the heat, besides complaining of course, but there are many ways to make the most out of it.
This is the one time of year no one is going to wonder why you’re eating ice cream five fives an hour, or drinking two pitchers of lemonade during the day. On the hottest days of the year, it’s also acceptable to eat ice cream sandwiches as a meal, at least as long as you don’t tell anyone, then you’d have to share.
However, no matter how much you enjoy ice cream and lemonade, there will be a point where you’ll find yourself growing tired of them, this is the point you’ll have to go to some extra work.
Lemonade can be made fun and tasty again by adding to it, strawberry lemonade is a favorite of many people, something becoming more popular is cranberry lemonade. You might also try limeade, it’s different enough from lemonade that it’ll refresh your tastebuds.
Ice cream sandwiches can also be spruced up, just eat them while sitting in a spruce tree. You could also make your own ice cream sandwiches by putting a scoop of your favorite flavor of ice cream between two chocolate chip cookies.
Another way to forget about the heat is to settle down in the coolest place you can find and read a good comic book, you want something dull and boring, or something taking place in the arctic, or Siberia perhaps.
Don’t expect to see much of your cat right now: cats are smart, they know when to sleep, in this case all day and part of the night, they will be active in the early hours after the temperature cools off, they’ll think you should be active then too, expect them to encourage you to wake up in the middle of the night to feed them.
All in all, this time of year isn’t too bad if you can just kick back and relax with frozen lemonade and a comic book. I hope you can find time to relax this week.
Thanks for reading.
