Beat the Summertime Heat!
I still love gardening and the great outdoors, spending time at the local watering hole and enjoying outdoor activities with our grandchildren, but this can cause exhaustion and flu-like symptoms with minimal exposure to the heat.
Even getting into a hot car can cause a headache and nausea for me, and dancing in the summertime is always a challenge!
My number one line of defense in the summer, is to stay hydrated by drinking lots of water (sports drinks may be a good idea, too)and my number two, and favorite line of defense is my chilly pad, also known as "Nana's Rag"!
ball cap, too, and see if keeping my head cooler will help with the summertime blues!
It is not often that I endorse products of any kind, but I promise that you will be amazed at just how cool these clothes are, and how much they can help you beat the heat.
Keep in mind these signs of heat stroke during this time of year:

Let us all have a great summer whether you are sheering sheep, planting and harvesting your garden, dancing, fishing, bike riding or rock climbing, please try to stay cool, and healthy!
And don't forget the sunscreen!!
