yutanpo

If you remember, I talked about yutanpo awhile back.

Well, last summer during those warm hot and humid nights, I found a great way to use this.

I fill the yutanpo with water then stick it into the refridge during the day. Then before going to bed, I take it out and we put our feet on it.

It is a great way to keep cool. Plus, it helps save us from sleeping with the a/c all night long.

I do the feet, usually that is what I stick out of my blanket when I'm hot, Deb. I dunno know if the dogs would appreciate it, though they do have the fur coats lol...

take care.

I guess I should count my blessings that our heat is nothing compared to yours. Heck, I wear flannel pj's to bed and I don't even break a sweat at night!
