99 degrees

99 degrees in NYC today and the sun is just shifting around to the windows of the room I work in. It’s an older building with large rooms and high ceilings and lovely large, deep windows I don’t want to block with an A/C unit, and I don’t want to shut out the sea air and birdsong: but it’s getting a tad warm.

Con Ed: ‘Please turn off all unnecessary electrical…’ Accepted all suggestions except the computer. A girl has to work. Meanwhile, lime, mint, honey, ice, water. Remarkably cooling.

Tell me all about it...
