Hot Hot in Annapolis

This morning I woke up feeling as if I was living in a very small one-bedroom apartment. I think it had something to do with the fact that my husband Peter and I slept in the dining room on a mattress we had hauled down from the guest bedroom. The air conditioning is not working on the second floor of our house. It is over 90 degrees up there, stuffy, and humid.
Having my bed next to the dining room table was convenient when it was time to eat breakfast and I jokingly told Peter, “I better make the bed!” Making the bed consisted of straightening out the top sheet so it neatly covered the pillows.
My daughter Alex, who slept in the living room on the couch, took a picture of our sleeping arrangements with her phone, but I’m not going to show that here.
Maybe the repairman will come today…otherwise it is going to be a very hot and miserable weekend. Although I should be very thankful that the AC still works on the first floor and it is only 80 degrees there.
This morning downtown everyone must have gotten the memo, exercise early, because by 7:30 a.m. there were large groups of people downtown congregating at City Dock and Main Street after their morning walk, bicycle. or run. You would have thought it was after 9:00 a.m. with all the activity. But in warm tropical climates, the day does begin earlier, to enable folks to take a break midday when it gets really hot. Current temperature: a mere 95 degrees but very humid.
