Howdy from the hot west!
Yep, we're supposed to be between 113-120 degrees this week. I know they say it's extreme, but hey, we're used to it out here! I'll let you in on a secret, a crazy secret; we've signed up for a special power plan out here where we get charged .31 per kilowatt from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. (Monday through Friday), and only .07 per kilowatt for weekends and all other times. My real secret is; I don't use air conditioning between 3-6 (the three hottest hours of the day) and with our extra insulation it only gets to 82 degrees in the house for those three hours. This plan saves us over a thousand dollars a year on cooling costs. We also have a big freezer in the garage and it's on a timer to be shut off for those three hours......saves lot's of money!
Now don't go thinkin' there's no sufferin' cause there's plenty. I have a medical condition which keeps my body temperature higher than regular folks, so I'm always sweating (I know you could have done without that bit of info). However, this is when I turn on two fans in my bedroom, lay down and take a nap. If I'm not doin' anything, then I don't sweat as much! I think it's pretty thrifty of me.......hey, you gotta' do some extreme things when your husband is out of work. Thank goodness, he now has a new job, which is contract to hire with........drum roll please...........PAYPAL!!!!! I know, is that great or what?
I'm so proud of him.
Okay, nuff about us, here's some more goodies. A couple are repeats, but most are new. Next week I'll show you the fun stuff my dear hubby got me as a reward for my recent battle/withdrawal, and I'll show you the Blog Banner's I've made to swap with wonderful friends.
Have a great week, wherever you are, and please take care in extreme heat or flooding.
