That means incredibly hot, humid days, with storms in the late afternoon or overnight.
It also means I'm suffering from fatigue reaching the point of exhaustion without doing much at all.
|My son's first-ever attempt at hairdressing.|
Today, it reached the point where I couldn't stand it any more.
My son came to the rescue, with the hair clippers.
For his first-ever attempt at hairdressing, I think he's done a good job of clipping my hair.
I've also noticed that, although I don't have a serious butterfly rash, I'm starting to get pink across my cheeks, which is not a good sign.
The worst of the hot weather is yet to come. Summer doesn't actually start until December. So far, this year has been Australia's hottest on record, so I'm not looking forward to the last six weeks of this year, or the start of next year either.
I have a couple of strategies for hot weather. One is to get rid of as much hair as possible and wear light clothing. My home is quite cool, except for the hottest days, and normally I can keep under fans or an evaporative cooler. (Eventually, I will save up for air conditioning.) When it does get too hot here, I tend to go to places like shopping centres, or fast food places, where I can find a quiet place to sit with a cool drink and my kindle while the worst of the heat passes. As always, I try to avoid being outside in the sun.
