First of all I would like to appoligize for that horrible text color (neon green) last time. I couldn't read it either!! You won't see that color again.
This week started out OK. I finished my altered art mini comp book for the swap over at http://creationsbytee.blogspot.com/
"The Altered Paper" . That was fun. It is the first time I covered a book WITHOUT sewing on the cover. I will post pictures when Valerie has had time to receive her package. It went to Germany so it will probably take 10-14 days.
First I have to tell you that here in Alabama the tempature highs has not been below 90 + but one or two days at most since the tornadoes came thru on April 27. That is actually very unusal for this time of the year. Second I don't have airconditioning in my home any more. The central air died several years ago from too much lime (we have lots of lime quarries in Shelby county) in the air that ate holes in the copper coil and since the warranty had just run out on the unit and it would cost over $1500.00+ to replace AND the three different companies I talked to said it would probable happen again in 5-6 years and I didn't have $1500.00+ to spend, I have relied on ceiling fans in all the rooms, box fans, and more fans etc. etc.. Mostly I have survived pretty well except late in the afternoons when the sun hits the back of the house (mainly the kitchen and den). You really don't want to do a lot of cooking at that time of the day. We have adjusted our life style to accommodate that. Well this week the refrigerator in the kitchen with the ice maker started acting up and it has gone downhill fast. Now it does not work at all. Makes weird sounds, drips water and for some reason the water cut off doesn't cut off completely. Everyone wants at least $75 just to look at it plus more to fix it. Luckily I have 2 side by side refrigerators and looks like I am going to have reduce down to one. The one with the ice maker isn't cooling as much as it should.
Then the riding lawn mower decided to throw a pulley off the cutting deck and we have to get that fixed. I have a VERY GOOD FRIEND that has volunteered to fix that. Thank you Sandy. You are the sweetest guy in the world. And a real lifesaver.
Anyway it is only Wednesday so I am holding my breath. We are supposed to have thunderstorms the rest of the week and SLIGHTLY lower temps. We really need the rain because we haven't had but about an inch in the last month and a half and this is usually a rainy time of the year, instead we have had a drought. But if the storms are anything like yesterday I worry. I was nearly blown of the road coming back from the library and post office. Wind rocked the van. Really was afraid. Any way I will let you know.
I am working on some new challenges ~ tags etc. Will have pics maybe this afternoon.
For now may God Bless each of you and keep you safe.
