4 Things It's Too Hot To Do
On some days in August, it’s just too hot to do certain things. For example:
1) Exercising outdoors in the middle of the day. It’s so much nicer to be able to go out for a walk or run in the morning or evening.
2) Turning on the oven. When the temperature soars above 90, it’s not the time for roasting or baking. It is the time for salads of all sorts; foods quickly cooked on a grill or stovetop; watermelon, cherries and other ripe fruits.
3) Organizing a basement or attic or storage closet. Spring and fall really are the best times for such activities!
4) Reading books that require intense concentration. Hot days are made for breezy books—“beach reads” that you can easily dip in and out of. Magazines are also great to read on a hot day, especially magazines that are fun to page through.
