It's been very warm here for a couple weeks now. I am not complaining. I like it hot. I can even stand the humidity. I'm not always a fan of the kitchen, but that's off topic.
With clever training from my mother who does not like the heat, I am able to keep the house cool by chasing the sun across the sky all day.
Before I go to be, I leave the front windows of the house (we face East) all open but close the curtains. The evening air gets in and cools the house, but when the sun comes up the greenhouse effect doesn't begin.
By 10 am I have closed up the house except for the very West end. This is to trap all the cool air in, and keep the warm air out. All windows get closed and draped get pulled. This is my special cave ambiance.
By Noon, the sun is overhead. I can open the very East curtains for light. The very West windows get closed as the backyard is now warmer outside than in. The air is only being moved by the ceiling fans.
By 3, the front of the house is now hotter inside than out. It has born the brunt of the sun all day, but now is in the shade. I open the windows and let a breeze in.
By 5, it's time to open all the windows, but keep the curtains pulled shut to keep out the hot light and let just the wind blow through.
At 6:30, the sun has gone behind the trees in the back of the house. All windows and curtains are open. Time to take the dogs out for a walk and let the house cool.
Midnight, I start it all over again.
And you guys wondered what I do all day?
