Keeping Cool and Happy 4th!

Things here are HOT and DRY. I have been staying inside a lot where it's cooler. Unfortunately, just when it's sweltering outside, our HVAC decides to die. It's about 20 years old, so I guess with all this heat it just couldn't hold up anymore. It'll be Monday before they can put a new one in so, in the meantime, I went out and purchased a window unit. I am so glad I did. We are under a heat advisory and I think I, and my husband, would have had a major melt down by now without it. Our house is small, so the window unit keeps it cool enough for us to be comfortable. I had to go to 3 stores before finding one. They said they are selling out as soon as they hit the shelves, especially the smaller ones. The one I got was the only one on the shelf. I stood guard over it while I called my nephew to see if he could come and put it in the window for me. I was ready to fight anyone who tried to take it!! I know this drought and heat is reaching a lot of states, so I hope that everyone is staying cool and that things aren't too bad where you are.

Hope everyone had a wonderful, safe, and happy Independence Day!
