How are you ladies surviving this heat?

We have basically been quarantined to our bedroom where our window AC is. My garden is pretty much dead (even though we tried watering it every day), my flowers are all dead, my grass is dead, but the weeds are overtaking my lawn. It's so hot that even my dogs don't want to be out in it. I even caught one of them going in the litter box last night! lol

So, what are your best 'beat the heat' tips and tricks?

Ugh! The heat wave has gotten a bit better here but holy cow! I didn't go grocery shopping for almost 2 weeks because going out in the heat made me sick. Grass is deader than dead, garden isn't doing much better and the ants have over taken the yard.

Our garden and grass is dead. Walking the dogs has made me sick with a horrible headache due to the heat. It's been miserable. This is the last summer I have to suffer this way though! Today we found out that we will have central air in our house before next summer...... a gift from my husband's grandparents!

Thankfully it has cooled off quite a bit the past two days. It's only 84 here today. Much better than the 108 it was the other day!
