Air Conditioning Update

No new part today.  :/  So it will be at least Monday before anything gets fixed.

We did, however, think to buy a couple of small fans that will fit in the kitchen and living room windows, thus helping move evening-cool air into the hot house.  This is working nicely at the moment.  And I got a small personal fan for my office, which is somewhat useful in keeping me cooler.

Also, the high expenses are wrecking our household budget.  If you are thinking about buying something from the half-price sale in Polychrome Heroics, that would be most helpful.  Even if you only have a few bucks to spare, you can join the pool.

Poem: "Knitting by the Numbers"

This poem came out of the June 1, 2021 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by prompts from [personal profile] fuzzyred, [personal profile] erulisse, and Anonymous. It also fills the "Knitting / Sewing / Crochet / etc." square in my 6-1-21 card for the Cottoncandy Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by [personal profile] janetmiles. It belongs to the Shiv thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.
