We are now the proud owners of two window air-conditioners. The first has been set up in the bedroom window, the other will go into Fuzzy’s computer room, and between that and the fans we should be comfortable this summer.

We thought about putting in a/c, but neither of is in the mood for contractors to be here banging away inside the ductless walls and floors, or for the expense, just now.

And anyway, it really doesn’t get that hot for that long here. It’s just that the bedroom – our bedroom – only has windows on one side because it was an addition, and there’s no cross-ventilation, so it gets very very stuffy in the summer.

The window fan has helped a lot, but the a/c should allow me to have blissful summer sleep, this year.
