To combat heat I have done several things.
1) swimming! note even the sharks are hot and just laying around.
2) low energy and heat output chicken watching!
3) eating lavender ice cream!
I have also played tennis and golf but that seemed to have the effect of not keeping me cool. On Saturday, I played in a tennis final when I lost about 6 pounds of sweat.
stay tuned for more cooling activities as the heat wave goes for eight days.
