Last night I made up a tear off flyer to sell the old air conditioner and put it on the bulletin board in the garage. $200. Got a call about it at 10 am. Sold it and watched it roll out of my house at 1 pm. Feels nice and efficient. The guy who bought it lives down the hall. He has no apartment building in front of him and said that already today his living room was too warm to be comfortable. It's 65 degrees in here.

So 1. yeah for selling it and reclaiming that storage space and 2. now I feel better about the natural temperature control in my place. But, he also said his heating bills were horrendous in winter and I don't even have a working heater so hmmmm

I moved a cabinet to a new home and now the new air conditioner is sitting nicely in its own nook.


My housecleaner brought me a delicious chicken salad sandwich for lunch. I mean it was top notch chicken salad. Delish. And my house is clean.

I found a couple of excellent fabric bargains at Goodwill and remembered to check my list so got everything at the grocery store. Score.

I saw on Instagram that seattlejo is headed to Charleston today. At first it was jarring. Why is she going to Charleston??? No one goes to Charleston from here! Then I remembered... she works at Boeing and they have a huge plant there so I'm guessing it's a work trip.

My parents retired to Charleston and loved it. In 1999 Daddy died so I made lots of trips to Charleston to help out Mom. We always had a great time. It's a fun town with lots o' great food. But, November of 2004 was my last trip. Mom died 13 years ago this month. So it's been 13 years since I was there. Wow. seattlejo asked me for what/where she should eat and I have nothing. I don't know the place any more. But she can't go wrong. They know their food. Plus, they have Bojangles!

The years do kind of shock me. I've had some really fun dreams recently about Mom - in many ways, it's hard to believe she's been gone that long. Also hard to believe her baby girl will be 69 years old next week.

But on the other end of the spectrum in exactly ten days, I'll be going to my first Mariner game of the season!!! I'm ready.
