I'm doing the happy dance! Want to know why? See this? This is what I'm over the moon about!
Isn't it beautiful?
So long swamp cooler! Yep, you read that right! We banished the swamp cooler and installed refrigerated air! Woo Hoo! Yippee! I'm practically giddy! No more damp floors. No more warping of the nice oak furniture! No more wet books! No more sweltering 100°+ days in the the house! No more clammoring up on the roof and having serious discussions with said swamp cooler unit!
It took two days and 4 guys. Here they are removing the swamp cooler...so long baby!
DH had to dig a ditch through the yard from the electric pole and the only time I frowned was when I found out that the unit had to be installed in my front yard, right in the middle of the bed of Vinca Major that after 5 years, and umpteen wheelbarrows of dirt, has finally started filling in. But, it's a minor problem I can deal with. Think we'll put up a fence around it, about 2 ft from the unit, and let the vines shimmy up it
This was not a fun job on this particular day because the wind was steadily gusting at 50+ mph.
Right now Jared is my hero!
I'm so cotton pickin' excited! And thankful! And blessed!
We're fresh air people though and for the most part, we prefer to have the windows open, but
my kitchen turns into a sauna in the summertime and I just won't know what to do with myself now! We're branding this week and I'm just jumping for joy in my nice, cool kitchen! Happy, happy, joy, joy! Even when the alarm went off at the insane hour of 3:00 this morning, I was not dismayed because I know that when the mercury rises during the day, I will be able to walk over to this handy dandy control unit and push that cute little button!
Ahhhhh....! I'm walkin in high cotton!
