Well, it seems that the A/C is out at my place. We noticed last night that it didn't seem to be cooling well, but I wasn't sure whether there was a problem. I thought perhaps the filters just needed to be changed, and it wasn't getting good airflow.
But tonight, after spending hours working in the yard with my mother and her friend, I found that the outside fan unit (compressor?) wasn't even running. So I have the A/C company looking to set me up an appointment tomorrow.
It's always something, isn't it? Just a couple of weeks ago it was the water pump, and at the same time my car was in the shop. Now the A/C. Here's hoping that it isn't anything major! The unit is only about four years old. They generally have a life of 10-12 years, and through good maintenance can last 20 years. It's currently 84 degrees in here. I hope that as the temps cool off outside it will cool down in here. It is currently about 82 degrees out, and will drop down to about 68-70 degrees overnight.
Keep your fingers and toes crossed that this doesn't cost me an arm and a leg!
I'm just a single divorced woman who has surrounded herself with animals, and enjoys the little things in life. Cooking, reading, movies and TV, outdoor adventures-- these are the little things that make up my own little Eden. This is where you can catch a glimpse into my Eden, where I find solace and peace from life's trials and tidalwaves, and the things that I love. Nothing but the good stuff (most of the time)!
Welcome to my Eden!
NOTE: I quit eating meat in April 2010, but my blog still has meat recipes I made before then. Now I'm a pescatarian: I only eat vegetarian, and fish and seafood.
UPDATE 7/19/15: I recently began eating meat again, but only meat purchased from a couple of well researched sources who pasture raise their animals and take care with the slaughtering of them, so that the animals are humanely raised and killed. One of these sources is US Wellness Meats. (However I'm basically a flexitarian. I rarely eat meat, but have added it back on occasion.)
A divorced woman living in South Florida, I love animals, music, nature and entertainment. I am at times serious and thoughtful (more often than not), and at other times a goof ball. I am trying to find my path-- a path that I hope to follow with light footsteps.
