Frankly, I do not know how people manage to live anywhere south of the 43rd parallel. It has been plenty hot enough here– but I know I don’t have much to complain about, when it’s been over 100ºF (38C) in Boston and New York and Philly and Baltimore. Those places, I’d perish. Here, it’s just damn hard to sleep.
So last night (would’ve done it sooner, if I’d thought of it) I pulled out the bedwarmer stones that have been sitting idly since March and threw them in the freezer for half an hour before bed. Aaaahhh! Absolutely delightful. J. put one under her feet. I lay on my back and put mine right on my chest. Really, really good. Try it. Use a pizza stone, or a flat rock from the back yard, or whatever you can find.
