R.I.P. AC...sigh...

Good Morning! How was your holiday? I was supposed to work and then planned to do some sewing on the holiday yesterday. Sadly, my air conditioning went out. It was 103 here yesterday (although I would swear it was hotter) and I couldn't get anything done. The house quickly got to 93 degrees and I thought I was going to pass out. Here's poor Lola laying by the air conditioner vent...to no avail. And to avoid questions, that is the toe of a fuzzy Christmas stocking hanging over her. I'm using it for a pattern this year.

The emergency a/c repair guy made it out about 5PM and by 6:30 it was fixed!! I cannot believe that people used to do without air conditioning! We didn't have any when I was a little girl. I don't remember it being this bad. The windows would all be open until about 10 AM and then the windows would go down and the blinds would be shut and the fans would be turned on. I'm so glad we aren't doing that today. Lola and I are both old fat girls and I honestly don't think we would live through it! So just for fun, I found these on Pinterest and thought you might enjoy them! Have a great week and I hope you are staying cool!

Ha! Ha! Thanks for the big laugh!! We were just talking about how people survived without air conditioning! And the women all still had to cook!
