Preparations for the day

I am trying to remember what Elly does in Aups on hot days. Of course her walls are stone and she has shutters, but everything she does has a reason, from closing the curtains to cross-ventilating.

I watered my plants in the cool of the morning (74 degrees) and cleared the sawdust in case a wind springs up. I am thinking back to the Southerly Busters of my youth in Sydney, how the temperature dropped in minutes, the weather equivalent of the cavalry. There doesn't seem to be the same mechanism here, just the usual freshness from the water. It must be like an oven inland.
