I hope you are surviving these heat waves in comfort and peace. Finally, my transition into having air conditioning is almost at an end. Just the finishing touches in my learning just how to get the most comfortable air in my home is taking root. My son Steve has been to stores to buy items and then back to my home many times.to Mickey Mouse the air conditioner to work for my greatest comfort. Since the air conditioner hose from the window to the unit itself was too short to allow the coolness to reach the hallway so it would disperse to the whole house, he adapted. That is one of his greatest gifts but one which causes a lot of frustration also, especially since I live in a very small town and the closest Home Depot is about an hour away.
He spliced the air conditioner hose and inserted tubing into both ends which allows the unit to almost reach the door to the hallway. Then he got a 16” pedestal fan that could change the direction of the flow to either end of the hallway to reach the other rooms. I was planning on going to the store and get a 30” fan which by I located by phone calls. This has been such an unusual season that there are no air conditioners left to buy and hardly any fans either, thus I let my fingers do the walking. My ignorance of all knowledge concerning what we were attempting to do did not help very much. Steve called me about an hour before I was setting out on my jaunt to find fans and mentioned that he had found a 16” fan which is just what I needed. Can you imagine if I had bought the 30”, it would have taken up my entire hallway with no place left for me to walk? I have to laugh at this adventure. Buying what you think you need and then having to return it because you needed something else instead. And…it is not a quick and easy jaunt to the store.
I love seeing my son and enjoy his company. He has come 4 times a week for the past three weeks and I am feeling like such an imposition on his time. Here is another opportunity for me to accept help with grace and gratitude. Life gives me many laughs. We are born helpless and accept and take help for granted. Then we get to our teens and are doggedly determined to get independent. For 40 years we learn to take care of ourselves and our families. Then we reach an age where there are so many things that we did that are impossible for us to do anymore. So then we return to our infant stages. It feels like we have to give up all that we worked so hard for. Why did we work so hard? I think I know….to finally relax and accept our humanness and be able to admit what we don’t know
My ignorance took up much of his time as he struggled to explain how to operate an air conditioner. I would never have guessed that it would challenge me so much but since the humidity here was 80 and not 60-65 like the news said, I had to learn to alternate between the air conditioner when the temperature was hot and use the dehumidifier when it was cool in my home. I walked around with sweaters on for a week or two until I realized that I was setting it at lower and lower temperatures so it would run and get rid of the humidity when it would have been good to switch to my other lifesaving machine, the dehumidifier.
The sun and the planet are in a great transition right now and we humans are being affected. What affects our planet, affects us. I am not into astrology or any of the other means of predicting what is happening but thankfully, there are other humans who can give us a heads up.
We are experiencing a full moon, eclipses and portal openings. Here is some additional info on how we are responding.
There are many opportunities right now to grow spiritually and expand our own Light.
I wish I had gotten this sooner but this vote affects each of us. You can still put your two cents in anyway so our government will know what we think about this subject.
Another in-the-know article that might explain why things are changing and why you are feeling the way that you do.
Grandma stories appeal to me especially since I am one. This is comical as well as inspiring.
Love and Light
