I found myself with the unusual situation of being caught up in my sewing for others so I grabbed a pattern and some material out of my stash and began a shirt for me.

Besides that I have been working on crocheting my shawl. With the General home from work I haven't gotten much else done, but spend time with him and run around.

Our a/c went out last evening. Eecks it was 90 degrees and humid. I called the service man while the General tried to fix it. The General is a very handy man and can usually fix about anything, but he thought the a/c had gotten hit by lightening. The service man couldn't come until today. We live in a brick house on a hill with no shade around. Our house was hotter inside than it was outside. We all had an uncomfortable night sleeping. I got a call from the service man at 7:30 a.m. and they were here by 8:30 a.m. He and the General went out and took the a/c apart. They thought they were going to have to replace a part. The a/c man just happened to spot a bug, an earwig, in between the contacts. It was blocking the contacts! They removed the bug and the a/c came back on. I was so thankful that was all it was. I told the General that was one area of going green I was going to have a hard time with. Living in this brick house on this hill with no shade I just can't stand how hot it gets in the house. I just can't give up my a/c yet.

Sew Long for Now!

"The General." Tee hee. That's very cute. I like that. I am glad your a/c problem was nothing major. Imagine! Just a wee bug causing everyone to roast. :)

I'm glad you're sewing something for you. We need to do things for ourselves sometimes.
