Quick hello

Hi all! Just popping in to say hello. Last week was a doozy. My MIL, SIL and her hubby all arrived from Oregon on Thursday ( so full house for me) in order to attend a family wedding on Saturday. The wedding on Saturday was very nice, but a loooong day. The ceremony was at 2pm, about an hour from our house. Then the reception was about  45 minutes from th church and started at 5pm. It was too far to go back home so everyone headed toward the reception with the vague idea of stopping for coffee or something. Luck was on our side and somehow about 20 of us ended up at the IHOP (pancake house) near the reception location enmass. We kept them busy for a while. Lots of noise and laughter.
Sunday the in laws wanted to organize a get together for the whole bunch, cause I guess all day Saturdy was not enough togetherness. LOL. So we hosted an inpromptu party at our house. Now of course that is the day tht we finally got HOT weather. Our air conditioning was kind of weak at best,but we were pretty comfy as we didn't need to cook.
Yesterday the air conditioner was not even pretending to work. The hubby called a repair guy who said he could get here around 7 pm. The in laws left for the airport around 5 pm and we retired to the lower level ofthe house because it always stays a lot cooler. The repairman called around 9:30pm and the hubby very politely said yes we would greatly appreciate it if he could still come out. He did at 10 pm. In 30 minutes we had some cool air on the way (and our money on the way off with the repairman). Sadly his opinion was that we need a new air conditioner and furnace, but he thought we might make it through the summer. I love warm weather, but I need it cool to sleep. So we will see how long we can get by.
I did do some sewing at work so I will take some photos on Wed and post those.
Happy quilting everyone.


  1. OH, dear...I hope you can make it a little longer before you have to lay out money for a new AC and furnace!

  2. That sounds like a good time, minus the broken air conditioner. Count this as a good thing that you found out your furnace might need to be replaced before it gets cold! I look forward to seeing your photos.

  3. Sounds like a great family get together, I'm hoping to have just as good a time at my nephews wedding in a couple of weeks. Hope your air conditioner holds out a while longer. When I lived in Northbrook, one winter we found out we needed a new furnace the first time it got cold and we really needed it. It is good to know ahead of time so you are prepared.

  4. I agree Beth, you need cool to sleep. Glad you all had such a wonderful time at the wedding - before, during and after. Cheers Ann :-)

  5. Yes, the coolness at night to sleep is a must! I hope the AC lasts for you.
    The family converging on your house must have been a whirlwind of activity. It's always nice to have company;)
    Happy Quilting!!
