Reminiscing and Window Units

Yesterday morning, within 5 minutes of getting up, we realize the house air conditioner was not working properly. A big oh no! 

We've got supplies ordered to fix it and they should be here in a couple days. In the meantime, we've moved two window unit air conditioners to the house and we are staying as cool as we need to. Our house is not that big, so it works for us. 

I went back to the bedroom to get something earlier and it took me back to summers at grandmama's house. She had no central heat or air; just window units, fans and a fireplace. Our bedroom was cool, that sweet hum of the ac was playing, the sun was filtering through the blinds and I sat and reminisced about her soft cool sheets and all her hand made quilts, along with summers spent at her house. She had a "Dutch Girl" quilt on one bed and I would play school and each girl was one of my students! The good ol' days... 

So I might have drifted off into dreamland and took a nap. 

Hope you are all staying cool this summer! I've listened to that lady on the radio telling me "your air will go out on the hottest day of the year..." and she was right. The hot water heater went out last month, so I'm scared to know what's next, but I'm not going to complain. It could always be much worse and I'm thankful for what we have and a husband who is capable and knowledgeable to fix almost anything.
