Share the Joy Thursday and Tea Talk with Ruth and friends.

Well it is a good thing.
Today and in fact this entire week has been full of challenges.
No big ones until today.
Our A/C completely froze up.
About 1 inch of frost on the coils.
Whose fault
Failed to have it checked for the year.
Well anyway and to top that off our
A/C man's messages have completely filled his phone and no way to reach him.

We are pretty sure why that is.

 So thanks to Meri I will look to something that brings me joy.

 Working on my painting I started on Monday.
Since we no longer have our fish pond, no longer any lily pads around.
So I will have one on canvas as soon as we finish it next week.
I so enjoy my painting class.
Great teacher, fun class mates and coming away with a feeling of accomplishment.
Great joy.

Having........Lemon Zinger Tea in my dainty china cup. Love that lemon zing. grateful that furnace is not completely zapped.

Thinking.......How great is his to find some joys in a bad situation. HH and I are so worried we are going to have to replace out furnace and how upset we were at first. After taking a few deep breathes and realizing we will deal with it whatever comes up, just as we always have.
While working with the furnace situation, I found my watercolor pencils I thought I had lost and because it is probably going to be really hot on the downstairs tonight without A/C housekeeper and I decided to move my bedroom upstairs (the second floor has it's own A/C).
This is something I have wanted to do for some time and just needed the push.

Blessings to all our friends.

Bummer about the air conditioning -- I'll be happy to share our cool NW weather (I wore a heavy jacket outside yesterday). Try movies and shopping when the heat gets to you!

My daughter has been enjoying water color pencils, too!
Praying for your furnace situation to work out in your favor.

I never "check" my air conditioner. What am I supposed to have checked?

A few years ago, my girlfriend broke down and finally got an air conditioner. In the winter, she put a cover on the AC to protect it from the elements. The first hot day of spring, her husband--now her ex--turned the AC on, but forgot to remove the cover. Oy, that was one forgetful man!
