I am joining up with Carole and friends to share three things happening in my world this week!
Sometimes doing one thing leads to a another and sometimes it leads to a catastrophe! Case in point: Monday’s AC Check revealed an electrical disaster that resulted in the replacement of the weather head, all exterior wiring, the box for the AC unit, and a new electric panel in the house (which thanks to our Pittsburgh toilet** had to be relocated to a new location). These repairs coming on the heels of an extended vacation was such an awesome bonus…NOT!
It is mid-May and I am sitting here writing this post wearing winter pajamas and a thick wool sweater. Mid-freaking-May (and that is not even talking about the amount of rain we’ve had!!) I would like to put my “cold weather” wardrobe away for the season…instead my closet has had an “all the seasons” bomb explode in it! However, the forecast looks like we are warming up over the next few days, so maybe some semblance of Closet Order can return, and I can finally put the winter wardrobe away. Fingers crossed!
I see some sewing in my “weekend forecast” all because Rose is here! Coming up this weekend, a Capri muslin for starters and I am so excited!
Those are my things but, what about you? What things are in your world this week?
**thankfully our Pittsburgh Toilet is not just a toilet sitting in the open in the basement – there has been a bathroom constructed around it, lol.
I’m sorry for your AC inspection debacle, but it sounds like a good thing that you discovered this now and not on some 98 degree day in August. Hopefully you can begin to forget about this expensive repair by sewing some capris!
P.S. My aunt and grandparents had Pittsburgh toilets in Cleveland. I always thought they were a bit odd (no walls!), but still useful!
Oh, the joys of home ownership! It seems like when you repair one thing, you uncover something else that has to be fixed — and it never ends.
I was wearing flannel PJs the other nice and was so cold I had to turn the heat back on. Then my husband complained that he was so hot he couldn’t sleep! I just can’t win.
My winter clothes are still in prominent position in my closet, so I can really feel your pain. (So. Sick. Of. Them.) Sorry about your surprise repair. I hate those. Have fun with your sewing.
Surprise repairs are no fun – but a darned good thing you got it all taken care of – that really could have been a disaster! Whew!
Rose looks like a nice pattern – can’t wait to see your results.
It is slowly warming here, but I’ve been in a heavy sweatshirt most nights. What’s up with that in mid-May???
Homeownership is not for sissies! Glad you discovered the problem before it became a PROBLEM and before it was 90 degrees outside.
I have never heard of a Pittsburgh Toilet. Who knew? LOL. Our weather has been much the same but I sense a change for the warmer is headed our way – hooray!
Frodo had his summer hair cut (shorn) and he has been trembling every single day this week because of the rain and the cold. I’ve been covering him with the wool blanket. We had a pittsburgh toilet growing up…..
I think your weekend is most definitely taking a turn for the positive! …and summer has arrived full force here – highs in the 80’s this weekend and 90’s by next weekend. YIKES!
