I have a secret for y’all. I think I have found the cure to hot flashes.

For years I heard the horror stories about hot flashes. How bad could they be? Come on! Well, let me tell you...they’re bad. They come out of nowhere, they creep up on you like crow’s feet. I feel it’s like a tornado. It comes through, hits you hard and you’re left reeling once it’s over. And others around you are un-phased. Like...what just happened? And poor Jeff. I freeze him out every night. He is bundled up, still shivering with 3 blankets on and I have a thin sheet over me with a foot sticking out, fan on high and heater off on these 30 degree nights. Bless his heart.

I don’t know how many of you had the pleasure of knowing Timmy Evans, but if you knew him, he was your friend. He and Trilby would have dinner with us at the restaurant sometimes and “being hot” came up in conversation once. I shared with Timmy my trick. When I do our bed-sheet laundry and our sheets are fresh from the dryer, ready to put on the bed, I just couldn’t do it. The thought of getting in bed with sheets still warm from the dryer was too much. So I would fold those sheets up and stick them in the freezer for about 15 minutes, take them out and put them on the bed. This had Timmy rolling with laughter. He never let me forget that story either!

BUT...I have found the cure. Hot Girl Pearls. It is freezable cooling jewelry. Each necklace or bracelet comes with a cooler pouch that you keep in your freezer. When you are ready to slip on the jewelry, pull them out of the freezer and wear them coolly! They keep you cool for up to 30 minutes. So whether you are sleeping with them on, golfing in the hot summer heat, wearing them shopping, dining, will be cool.

Stop by Coral Cottage and check this brilliant invention out for yourself! And if you see me on the food truck this summer in ragged clothing, ponytail and no makeup, you just may notice a nice set of pearls as well. And I will be happy and cool.
