Happy Healthy Half Dozen

happy half dozen.blog

Our part of Arizona can be hot in the summertime, but almost without exception, air conditioning isn’t needed until early afternoon, and it cools off by bedtime, and doors and windows can be re-opened.

In exchange for this small inconvenience, we have an abundance of produce that literally floods our markets during this period.

When Breakfast Boy finished garnishing his five-grain cooked cereal (with yogurt and carrot fluff), there were about six bits of this fruit left in the bowl. Not shown: Pineapple, dates, cranberries, coconut, pecans, and granola – also in the cereal bowl.

    MMMMM good! That gorgeous fruit bowl looks exactly like my breakfast yesterday except I had cherries rather than what I think are peaches. Love it “breakfast boy”. HA!

      The altitude here is 4,623 feet, so that makes a big difference. We put the house thermostat on 83 degrees, and when the air conditioner comes on, we shut the doors and windows. Today this didn’t happen until about two thirty in the afternoon. It hasn’t rained today, so it’s a little hotter, but on monsoon-ish days, the rain cools off the afternoon heat, and we can open the house back up around eight or nine o’clock in the evening. Otherwise, it is about ten or eleven before it is cool enough to open back up. So far this year, we haven’t had to run the air conditioner at night while we are sleeping.
