beat the heatwave


This heatwave in Toronto seems like it's endless.  My favourite ways to beat it..

- Lemonade.  Lots.  Mixed with iced tea.
- Seek the shade.  Stand under trees.
- Try to bike in the early morning.
- Watermelon.  Chilled.  Eaten around a pool.
- Gelato.  Ice cream sandwiches.  Ice pops.
- Last resort.  Central air.

  2. I totally understand. Fans just don't cut it for the few weeks in the middle of the summer.

  6. Lemonade + Iced tea = "Arnold Palmer" and I'm obsessed with this drink this summer! It's delish.

  7. We're having the same heat here in MB. Oy. I am addicted to milkshakes and ice water right now.

  8. i don't love a/c, but in this oppressive heat it's become a necessity.
    lemonade and ice coffee are staples around these parts.
