September 4, 2013

It just amazes me how we used to live without cool air coming into our cars, houses or businesses.
It has been a tough week for those of us who don't exactly love the heat!! I found out just how spoiled I am. Dan always tells me I am spoiled...and I tell him I know it and I love it! The fact is that he is just too good to me, and I have gotten used to it. And I sure don't want it to end now!

When he sold the business, Dan and I got the air conditioner to put in our dining room. It has been a life saver in our big, old farmhouse for many years. We don't need it often, because our home stays pretty cool with the grove surrounding our house and yard. But when it becomes as hot as it was this week, we have been blessed to have it.
