06:21 pm: Day one of "keeping cool" plan going smoothly
I briefly considered going to Kyoto for the flea market today, but I soon decided to put that off until next month. Instead I stayed in my air conditioned room as much as possible, reading and playing around with adding tags to my entries.

I'm liking this plan.

If only I didn't have to cook...

Yeah, because it'll be cooler next month.

^_^; At least next month it's theoretically possible to go to the one on the 21st, which is closer to the station.

Besides, it would be more fun to go together, if we can swing it.

This week I must remember to ask my students if they can watch Choco. And then clear my days off. And then I'll get back to you with the length of my impending takeover of your apartment visit.

How does Choco handle the heat?

Don't we all?

She's fine. (As a matter of fact, right now she's lying on the top of my wardrobe, which is the hottest part of the apartment.) Cats are extremely temperature efficient. You know how dogs get hot and you see them panting? How often do you see cats do that? They usually don't need to, because they're good at regulating their own body temperature.

That being said, I was worried about her last year, when there was a heat wave and the temperatures were up over 105 for almost a week. I would come home and give her fresh cool water, and she would gulp it down and then lay on the floor and pant for a while. If it had gone on any longer, I probably would have started to leave the air conditioner on for her.

It's 102 degrees here today!

And Rob is working outside with no shade in the pit stop area wearing a black Brazeway shirt for the Junior Achievement Grand Prix event. He's been there since 6:30 this morning and will probably be there til 6 this evening. Bob and I could only stand it for about an hour. (When it's over, all the kids are going to see Batman.)

Thank goodness tomorrow's annual family reunion will be in the air-conditioned McCarthy Hall.

Your plan is great.

Instead of cooking, there are always sandwiches (PB&J, or cheese,), liquid refreshment like smoothies if you can think of a fruit you would eat, yogurt or cottage cheese, etc. Finally, if we have to apply heat we definitely go for the microwave over any other choice.

Parts of town lost electricity for several hours yesterday because of the power draw.

Wow, he's certainly got my wimpy self beat.

I have been taking sandwiches to school for lunch more often...

liquid refreshment like smoothies if you can think of a fruit you would eat,

Fruit here is exorbitantly expensive, so I don't buy fresh fruit often. I have, however, been guzzling fruit juice like it's going out of style. The problem I run into is not having enough refrigerator space to store it all. I can barely keep enough juice to last me one week.

yogurt or cottage cheese, etc.

I've taken a liking to Heinz mango soup. It's essentially mango blended with yogurt.

I hadn't thought about cottage cheese...I can only get the small-curd variety, which I like for casseroles but not really for eating plain. I may make an exception, however, if I get desperate.

I was quite thankful for the superintendant's fresh tomatoes and cucumbers this week...
