Our new AC unit is in and working! It's been inspected three times, working great, and I'm back under the blankets again because it's super cool!! This is our new thermostat for the AC. Pretty fancy, computerized and Wi-Fi remote control from anywhere! Whoever dreamt as we read our little Weekly Readers back in the day that we would carry cell phone/computers in our hand and be able to chart our course, set our thermostats and security system remotely, and take photographs!!! I remember especially being impressed as I read the Weekly Reader circa. 1961 or so that it showed the possibility in the future of being able to see the people we are speaking with on the telephone!! Crazy, crazy!! That was hard for this sixth grader to imagine.
But just this morning we not only spoke on the phone with grandson Noah, but watched his cute antics and excitement of his celebrating a birthday today. Noah is a whopping nine years old! Happy Birthday to you, Noah!!!
With his beautiful mom.
He said the food at camp was really good and his birthday treat this morning was DONUTS and that explained why he was so hyper on the phone!!!
No, I don't think we can blame the donuts. You and your brother have always been willing to put on a great show for us!!! Sweet, cute, smart boys. We love you so much!
I've been walking each morning and see this cat quite often. This morning he/she was up in the tree sitting pretty, but just as I got my phone out, it began to come down the tree to meet me. I wasn't sure what the intent was. Cats don't bite, do they?
Just because she's so cute! Our great niece!
Our year of 2017 is half over now. But it is still half full. I have been walking each morning for the past two weeks and hope it is now my habit again. It was pleasant, although the sun has now made its way through the clouds and it is warming up to reach the forecast of 96 today. That isn't too bad for this time of year. I am hopeful that the summer will not be a scorcher.
