Here is another of the photographs we took. We wish there were more. Unfortunately, some things are beyond our immediate control. Obviously, the long term solution is to purchase a new camera. But, after getting a new air conditioner and a new refrigerator, we have already spent a lot on unexpected purchases this year. So, it remains a to-do.
As it always does this time of year, sunset is happening earlier and earlier. But, what’s slightly depressing is that even when the sun is still up, its not as high in the sky. So, it’s much darker an hour … Continue reading
Our new refrigerator is great. Our only “complaint” is that it doesn’t make ice as fast as the old one even though the freezer is colder. And, of course, it was gigantically expensive. We’ll have a few cool days that we will not need much, if any, ice for our sports water bottles and the ice maker will eventually fill up. But, we’ll remember the cost for a long time. Not having a lot of low-cost options is one of the unfortunate realities of our kitchen.
Our “broken” refrigerator can keep things cool so long as we don’t open it. So, we’re using it for a few items that don’t fit in the other one. Until the new one arrives. We’ve had a LOT of things break this year. So, in addition to spending a bunch of money, we’ve often found ourselves waiting for the new ones to get delivered.
Here are a couple of pictures from the second group. Unfortunately, the is not much in between when positions were reversed since I didn’t; notice right away, that the camera was not taking pictures and I wouldn’t have stopped and … Continue reading
Here is another segment of the movie we made this week. It is shorter than what we posted on Tuesday; but still higher resolution. Enjoy.
I noticed on the weather app that sunset today is still after 9PM. But, this week will probably be the last week. We like the long summer days since they give us plenty of time to row, wash and inspect … Continue reading
Now that the air conditional isn’t so loud and doesn’t have an annoying vibration, we’ve moved the bed back against the outside wall. It was only a few inches away from the wall before. But, I never quite got used to the bed not being next to at least one wall. The bed is still new so I don’t think it increases the noise from the bed springs. Can you tell any difference?
We are really enjoying our new A/C. The air that comes out of the registers is much colder than before. Plus its great not having to think about whether or not it’s still going to be running when we get back inside after an afternoon in the heat. One less thing to worry about when we’re on vacation.
