Just keeping cool & laying low today...this vignette in my living room is how I want to feel. In a house without air conditioning...we have a rhythm to keeping the place cool. Open up windows at night, turn on the ceiling fans...and then close up the house during the day. It is actually quite cool -- that is what a well built brick house does...stay cool when you want it to. And the 100 year old trees & great amount of shade helps. So, feet up, good movie or magazine...staying cool.
