It takes very little to make me happy. Precious time with my sweet family. A slow, steady rain or warm sunshine with a gentle breeze. Blue skies overhead with white cotton clouds. A comfortable place to call home. (Notice I did not say large or extravagant…just comfortable with a few of my personal touches.) My books and time to read them. Sustenance of course. My morning coffee, good food, good water and maybe some Sweet Tea. Warmth for the winter here in this cozy condo…and cool air for the summer.
The A/C unit that came with this condo that I rented almost two years now was original to the building. My sweet “landlady” had previously had refrigerant added to it – twice. However, there was a leak and no amount of refrigerant (which is expensive) would last that long.
It has been hot and humid here – think Memphis. The condo had become very warm and uncomfortable. So, thankfully, she ordered a new Lennox central air conditioning unit. I was so glad!
Last Friday, they arrived with a very large crane. All the central air units are on the roof – although I’ve never noticed them from outside. The A/C unit was unpacked and securely attached to a sturdy-looking harness. Then the crane did its work. The unit literally dallied back and forth in the air. I held my breath. The next thing I knew it was unloaded and the crane lift was coming back down. It took a few more hours and then all the work was done. Installation successful. Sweet cool air surged through my cozy home.
I wished my grandsons had been here for the show! When my now sixteen year old grandson was less than two years old, he knew the names of all the earth/heavy moving equipment. He couldn’t pronounce them completely, but he knew them. All John Deere…of course.
