Een gedachte over “Verkoeling/Cooling

  1. Hittegolven zijn van alle tijden maar de laatste tijd wel erg vaak en erg heet. Maar als kind kon ik er beter tegen en we waren misschien ook wat vindingrijker hoe er mee om te gaan. Je houdt de hittegolf niet tegen. Maar het gaat er om hoe er mee om te gaan Met een beetje plezier gaat dit een stuk beter lukken. Blijf lachen en blijf genieten. Het gaat vanzelf een keer over en dan zit je al weer voor je het weet midden in de herfst.
