And of course, after a spring full of cold, damp days, we jumped from highs in the low 60s to upper 80s/ low 90s OVER NIGHT! (Cause that’s how we roll here in the Heartland of America…makes for some ferocious storms!)
Actually, we’ve been dealing with no heat or AC since March 20th…when we got the 8 inch snowstorm on the first day of Spring. In fact, we’ve had a heating/cooling guy out several times this spring. He would get the system fixed, providing heat, only for it to stop working a few hours later. On Monday he was just plain honest with me…,”Ma’am, I give up. You need to call someone else.” Okay then. We called someone else and they made it out today.
Two-hundred fifty-eight dollars later I’ve got AC pumped throughout the house. Worth every penny!
In the meantime, we had Mary Catherine’s all-school picnic to attend. We missed most of it due to the AC visit, but I’m NOT complaining! We took our picnic basket and blanket, but Mary and Ben were really too excited to eat. They were all about the playing!
My two little pirates.
Merry-go-round love. I rode this type of playground equipment every chance I could get as a kid. Today…makes me dizzy just watching it!
I can never get enough of this sweetness…sweaty-boy smell and all! There’s just something about those blue eyes and blonde curls that make my heart melt!
Mary’s favorite piece of equipment…the “troll” bridge! This thing is so old I cringe every time she runs across it as it buoys up and down and rattles its chains.
In the meantime, I’ve been working on a little nursery project that involves this…
Can’t wait to show you the final outcome. It’s transforming nicely into baby boy changing table goodness!
Wishing you all a wonderful Memorial Day weekend here in the United States and a relaxing/peace-filled weekend to my out-of-country readers!
