How to Cope with Summertime Heat!

It has been an absolute whirlwind of activity for the past three weeks! Joe and I have been entertaining our three granddaughters from Arizona since June 26th, in addition to all of the other visitors that also arrived during their stay!

Since the girls are eight, seven and five, the bulk of activity fell upon our shoulders and since we do not have the good fortune of having them live near us, we wanted to make the most of our time. Being that we live in Idaho, much of the activity happened outdoors; if you are like me, that probably means that the heat and sun, are not your friend!

I do not have the energy to fill you all in, on all of the great things that we did, but I did want to share my number one lifesaver with you, as quickly as possible. It is a Frog Togg Chilly Pad! It is the coolest product that I have ever found; you wet it, wring it out and put it on your body. It not only keeps you cool, but lasts for hours. To reactivate, all you have to do is re wet it. It is truly amazing and no, it does not wet you or your clothes! It is heaven on earth and I am not kidding! It literally has been a lifesaver.

I used to take a small cooler with small ice packs everywhere I went during the summer, but now I just carry my “rag” around my neck everywhere I go! Lol They do come in a multitude of colors, and I think that I may order a few more, because after all, we MUST be stylish when wearing our “rags” around our necks. Right?

So, if you are dealing with heat issues like I do, I encourage you to give this a try; you won’t leave home without it! (and don’t laugh, but there have even been a few nights that I have taken mine to bed!) Go Chilly Pad, Go!
