No matter what you do or where you run, the heat finds you. Saturday was barely bearable without air conditioning, Sunday was just plain hot and nearly unbearable, today I was just plain miserable and hot. Hopefully the unit, or whatever it wrong with it will be fixed before tomorrow begins to roast too much, at least I hope. It got up to 92 degrees F. in my apartment today, and right now it is about 80 degrees F. in a few parts of my apartment.. It really sucks. The heat is so intense during the day that I cannot get all of it out of my apartment with the limited number of fans that I have before I got to bed, which sucks because that same heat will be there in the morning. So since I didn't have air conditioning for the day, I was planning to soak in cool water in my bathtub for as long as possible which I did. However, I was expecting a package from UPS to arrive so I was hanging out waiting for them to show up, which they never did from what I thought. Apparently though I missed them although I was sitting in my living room with the front door open and kitchen window. I never heard a single word or knock at the door, yet I find another slip of paper (since I missed them on Friday) saying that I basically wasn't there for them to deliver what I have been eagerly awaiting for. To say I was mad is an understatement; between Fed-Ex and UPS I don't know which one I dislike more. I have had more problems with those two parcel delivery services than I have ever had with the United States Post Office, which is a government run service for goodness sake. So I had a later dinner and late time because I was cooling down in the bathtub, which worked wonderfully. I got my laptop computer and watched a film while I was chilling. I think I might have done that for a little over an hour before I got out and went on with the rest of the night, trying to remain cool. I am praying that tomorrow is cooler, or that my A/C unit is fixed or whatever is going on with it otherwise I may just end up going delirious from all of the heat. When things are cool enough I may just be able to get some writing accomplished once again. Oh and my cheesecake turned out very, very well; cooked a tad too long, but not overdone or underdone thankfully. A huge tip for excellent baking is be certain that your oven is calibrated properly and get an oven thermometer.
