Sometime this week my blog visit counter will reach 10,000! Seems like a reason to celebrate to me. So here is what I have in mind. Each day- for five days- Monday through Friday -I am going to do a post on how I’m beating the heat. Leave a comment sharing something you do to Beat the Heat and I’ll enter you in a drawing to win the pattern of your choice- which I will purchase through the gift button on Ravelry. Leave a comment everyday and that’s FIVE chances to win. Looking forward to reading your Beat the Heat comments!
One thing about not having air conditioning is that restaurants and movie theaters often feel overly chilly to me. We are so lucky to have an alternative to the frigid movie complex. Just up the road from us is an old Drive- In that still shows feature films. It’s one of only 61 operating Drive- Ins in the country I’m told. This past weekend we Beat the Heat by heading to the Drive In to see Brave.
We packed a pic-nic to eat while we waited for dusk. We watched kids play soccer and Frisbee and catch on the lawn in front of the screen. The breeze picked up and the air-cooled as dusk arrived around 10:00pm and the movie started. It was a late night for this early riser, but the movie was fabulous, the company and food delicious and the cool breeze sublime.
