Betcha can’t guess what I’m thankful for today!! Yes, they can! Awww, man!! Why do I write titles that give it away??
I’m so thankful for air!! Yes, oxygen! But mostly, cold air!! Air con, to my British friends, right, Sherri?
How in this world, did we ever survive, during my childhood, with no air?? Maybe because we were used to it? Maybe because we had no choice? Maybe because Al Gore hadn’t invented global warming yet? Just kidding!
We did have fans, or else I’m convinced we’d all have been dead decades ago.
But then Ben Franklin discovered electricity, and the Romans invented air conditioning, and here we all are, alive and kicking. Or something like that, anyway.
So, we have this unit in the living room, thanks to PopPop. It’s on indefinite loan.
He always seems to have one of whatever we need at the moment!! And you want him to de-clutter cuz why??
It works hard, but doesn’t have the capacity to bring the temp under 80, when it’s 100 out. I’m still so grateful to have it!! (Cuz we didn’t even notice Joy House had no living room unit, until AFTER we signed the papers! Duh-oh!) And here it is only 11 pm, and it’s already down to:
But!! In the bedroom, we have this beauty!!
Beauty is in the
eye of the beholder. Skin of the hotter.
Well, beauty may not be strictly accurate. But when my eyes are closed, and I feel the cool breeze wafting over my face: it could look like Caligula, and I wouldn’t give any cares at all!!
I was getting a wee bit tired of waking up with icicles hanging from my nose, however.
Sad to say tho, it took me almost 2 months to figure out that the bottom knob could adjust the temp! DUH-oh, again!
DH knew. He didn’t tell me tho, cuz he thought I wanted to be cryofrozen! When I started complaining, he gave me an expert tutorial. “Turn the knob up for warmer.” And I understood every word!! Yay!! World of technical stuff, I’ll master you yet!
Now when I lay me down to sleep, I’m comfortably cold, not frozen chosen cold!
