As cool as it is now, it’s hard to imagine that just a month ago it was still plenty hot! At that time I concluded that it must be the nature of air conditioners to break down when it’s the hottest. We had so many units go out this summer, so that’s somewhat to be expected.
In early September, it was our turn at Mesa Manner. I honestly don’t mind so much the heat, but the unit is in our attic, and when it went out, the hallway and my closet on the other side of the wall ended up with lots of standing water.
It’s those little blessings like a toilet that flushes, or a nice dry place to store our clothes, that we forget to be thankful for until they’re gone.
So Lorena has been helping with the closet contents, and Louie has been tearing out the old Sheetrock (why do people Sheetrock a closet, anyhow?). I’ve been paring down my belongings, always a good exercise, but not often done. Learn more at MaidEasy.au.
In a former lifetime, I was a journalist in Guatemala City, for not quite a year. I loved Guatemala, and every weekend I ventured into the Highlands, and I purchased many beautiful hand-woven, hand-adorned articles of clothing, blankets, and so forth. They are fabulous. It makes me sad that I don’t wear them anymore and I barely look at them.
What do I do with them now?
