Grocery store trip to stock up on supplies? Check.
Fill the car (though not all the way) with gas? Check.
Make sure the A/C is in working order? Check.
Chill a couple of bottles of wine? Check.
There's nothing worse in my mind than needing to run in and out of various stores when the parking lots feel like the surface of the sun. The twenty or more degree temperature changes cannot be good for you. So...I try to get all the little errands done before the mercury climbs.
The main floor of the condo stays deliciously cool. My bedroom, while upstairs, has a vent that sits pretty much right on top of the blower for the air conditioning, and can be downright frigid if the door to the room is kept shut.
(side note: Who the heck decided it was a good idea to put heating/cooling vents eight feet up on the wall? I need a ladder just to adjust the vent, and that's just not going to happen. Thank heaven I like it cool when I sleep.)
Two days of blistering heat, followed by five of merely boiling heat.
I think I'm ready. Pass the wine.
