So last week I talked about how hot it was during my lunch hour. Summer had arrived early and we were all sweating to death when we couldn’t find air conditioned comfort.

Today I am eat chicken soup and thinking about putting on a sweatshirt because it’s gray and 62 degrees out. That Mother Nature is such a hoot, even when she looks like Dorothy’s sister Gloria.

I don’t have a cold or anything because I refuse to have a cold. I think I’m sniffly because we slept with the fan on and it dropped down to around 50 last night. When the windows are open and the fan is blowing on you, you can get sniffly under those circumstances.

Nevertheless, I am eating chicken soup in the luxury of the kitchen while playing around with my Linux computer during my lunch hour. The first official day of the remote part of my new position is going along quite nicely. I’m getting quite a bit accomplished down in my home office.

I’ll probably get more accomplished once I put on a parka to go with my camo shorts.


    1. When I took a look at the weather forecast for your neck of the woods I decided that I had no right to be complaining about the weather up here. I guess you guys don’t get away with no air conditioning in the house like we do! I hope you find a cool spot! Oh – do you get these replies by email again?

      1. Our HVAC system bit the dust a couple months ago. As they want to replace the entire freaking system–at a ginormous cost, we have a few window units in certain rooms now. And I’m fairly certain they really aren’t helping much. *ugh* I can’t imagine living in a climate where we don’t need AC. Although that would be nice on the power bill.

        And I have started getting the reply emails again! Hurrah!

        1. Our heating bill nearly kills us in the winter, though this past winter wasn’t so bad. The number of computers in the house (including two servers) doesn’t help the light bill, though. I need to do something about that. 🙂

          We can’t have window AC units because of the way our windows open. We looked at having central air installed in the house but it would be quite expensive, even with all the duct work already in place in the walls.
