Summers in the south are absolutely brutal. I am an avid gardener and have at least 20 different types of fruit trees on my property too. I have to go outside to tend to my garden and trees every other day. I try to wake up early so I can get outside before it gets too hot to do anything, but the problem is that there are thousands and thousands of mosquitos on my property and in my garden. I have to wear long sleeves, pants, and even a mask so that I don’t get bit all over my body. I am sweating within minutes. Luckily, my entire house is air conditioned. I just love the feeling of walking into my house after tending to my garden and feeling the nice cool and clean air on my face. I may be dripping with sweat, but the air conditioner makes me feel better within seconds. I keep the air conditioner set to a nice cool 68 degrees in my house during the summertime so that I can keep my sanity on those hot summer days. I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have a decent air conditioner in my house. I don’t think I’d be able to work outside so much. There would be no place to cool off! I would probably need some sort of pool or nearby lake to jump into at the end of the day. I hate swimming though. I would much rather hang out on my couch next to the nice cool air conditioner after a hard day’s work.
