They say that Fall is coming. It was 90+ºF today… . I am eternally grateful for the invention of air conditioning and ceiling fans. Imagine what the early Southerners used to live like! How did they deal?
There is more to picking yourself up off the floor and having another (sweating ) glass of iced tea to help you feel more buoyant these Indian Summer days. Which is why three little things are going to make me feel a lot better. Try them yourself and see if your perspective doesn’t improve a bit.
- Change the bed linens. Starch those percale pillowcases. Buy new, crisp bedding if you have to.
2. Change of season, change your undergarments. Treat yourself to some new knickers, drawers, small clothes, whatever you call them.
3. Sweaty? Shower. And then turn the knob to cold. Last as long as you can. Invigorating. And finally…
4. Have the car cleaned inside and out.
I know that was four, but I like to overdeliver. A clean car always perks me up.
