It's steamy here in the NorthEast this week.
To help keep you house cool remember to close the blinds, shades or curtains on windows where the sun will stream in. You will be surprised how much of a difference it can make. Even if you use central air this will help your unit run more efficiently.

Oh, and... if you have pets -please, please don't leave them in your car, or tied out in the yard.

oops... I forgot to mention. If you are closing the shades in the front of your house - always remember your curb appeal and be sure they are all at the same level. Makes for a tidy presentation.

Ugh, I was literally just thinking that this air is so heavy you could cut it with a knife.

The poor cat is so hot, she's hanging out in the bathroom on the tile floor behind the toilet. Must be the coolest spot she can find.

Great tip weese! Thanks for stopping by my blog to visit. Where is the NorthEast are you from? I was born in Erie PA.

Anyone that would do that to a pet should NOT be a pet owner.

It does cool off enough in the evenings that one can enjoy a nice cocktail on one's porch. :)

Another way to keep your house cool is to crank the AC. That's how we roll down here in VA.
