The Heat is on!

Whew! Summer has arrived! Some people enjoy hot weather more than others.

I am one that loves it! There is one draw back as of today. Our pool isn’t up! We have been so busy with the arrival of a new grandson. Rowen was born May 16th! We are such proud grandparents! It is wonderful being a grandparent. Each one brings us such joy. We are truly blessed.

A week later on May 23rd, our granddaughter Penelope had her adenoids removed and new tubes placed in her ears. She has endured many ear infections and sinus problems, so surgery became a necessity to hopefully relieve her pain. So far, so good! It was difficult to know at the young age of 2 1/2 she would receive an anesthesia. We were all worried, but so relieved, that she didn’t have a reaction and surgery went well.

So, we have been on the go. Jeff had to work two weekends in a row, then when he was off last weekend, we were busy. So, the pool isn’t up yet. This weekend is supposed to be hot and I really wish it was up! But, there will be another day to get it done!

We don’t even have the window air conditioners in yet. That project will be completed tonight. We don’t have a furnace. We have baseboard heat. Window air conditioners are just fine for our house. We put one in the living room and one in the bedroom. We stay cool and that is what counts!

I tend to turn the air conditioners up while we are gone during the day. I am home before Jeff, so I turn them down so the house is cool when Jeff gets home. He is outside most of the day at his job, so he needs to cool off!

My worry is the electric bill. We are on the budget and so far, have a credit. I want to keep it that way! It is tough but I am going to do the best I can to keep the bill down!

I hope all of you stay cool! Most importantly, stay hydrated!

Have a great day and enjoy the heat this weekend, in air conditioning or in a pool!!
