Air Pollution

A friend shared this photo with us. They took a picture from the same point – one in December and one just this week. It’s the time of year when all the farmers burn their crops to make way for the new season.

It’s. terrible. Just terrible. 

We close all of our doors and windows these months and run an air purifier. And it’s quite a bummer because these are also the hottest months. Like 105+ degrees hot. A draft through the house is glorious, but instead we have a little house sauna.  No air conditioning. Just fans. Yuck. Yuck. Yuck. And just imagine making dinner on the stove. It heats the whole house! Saaaaad, sweaty momma.

We wear face masks when we’re outside.
