Summer, the most beautiful season of the year…yeah, right. I spent most of July at home, alone, cause it’s freaking HOT here. I’m just trying to convince myself that I actually had a great time. LOL. So, I pulled together some of the MUST haves of this summer, some of which I just recently purchased and found a really amazing distraction from the absolutely oppressive heat.
A 24-hour / 500-song playtime makes it possible to listen all day and all night. I can really use it to the fullest during a vacation. I can jam to my favorite music all day long, and it goes perfect with my workout.
In total, I read only 1 or 2 books in 2016. Now that I’ve had my Kindle this summer, I’ve finished 6 books in July alone! It’s so convenient to read anywhere in the house. Even though I haven’t really been out anywhere this summer, I feel like I’ve been to many places and met many new people.
Last but not least: a helpful robot, cleaning my house with a click of a button. Versatile cleaning modes and a low-profile design facilitate cleaning under tables, chairs and every nook and cranny. Now I don’t need to do so much vacuuming myself! Thanks, RoboVac.

Now, I bought a Soundcore 2 not too long ago for my vacation to the Dominican Republic in October BUT, I really wanted the Soundcore Sport XL, unfortunately, I’m on a budget. I do like the Soundcore 2 for the price because I use it for music when I’m cooking but I wanted something more rugged and extra waterproof for the beach and to have poolside. Maybe next time, I just think the Sport XL would be a better option for vacations.
I’m near San Francisco and it varies wildly. Which is perfectly fine, it more decides if we eat indoors, outdoors and what time of day we exercise. Today a little warmer so exercise nearer dark. As a rough guide, look out the window, if see the fog rolling over, then it is 40F cooler in the hills, otherwise it is 20F cooler in the hills. But accept that other places have totally different issues.
From an Anker perspective, this translates into:
weekday it is hot = daylight indoors avoiding heat, dark outdoors waiting for indoors to cool enough to then go to bed, so lots of tablets, Chromebooks in the evening
weekday it is cold = daylight outdoors as the sun is so strong it makes the coldest day warm, but otherwise indoors.
weekend, hot = go to the beach, sit on the beech and take all your gadgets and take lots of Powercores (possibly solar too) and wait til evening
weekend, cold = go skiing. So solar (as altitude = UV = solar loves all those high energy photons).
We also end up with lots of solar, Powecores, so when the Grid goes off with the next big Earthquake, we’re perfectly fine. Just more BarBque living off defrosting freezer, then dried, then tinned, waiting for PG&E.
I’m one of those nerds still playing Pokemon Go!
There was a special event this week in the game, so despite the 90+ degree weather, I’ve been outside walking (and baking) in the sun. The Astro E1 has been my companion as it’s still portable enough to keep in my pocket, but has enough capacity for when my friends see me using it and say, “Hey, can I get a charge?”.
