Hi! (and an update of sorts)
Last week was a busy week, and I wanted little to do with the computer (although I had prepared several pictures to get posting more regularly again). One thing I have wanted to do for some time, but have been unable to do, was take the birds outside for the fresh air. Summer has properly "hit" and we have very hot and muggy days; I'm uncomfortable outside, I don't think the birds would fare much better honestly. Our backyard gets particularly hot...
Of course, given how hot it has been, it was the "perfect" time for our A/C unit to break down. I thought something was wrong yesterday while we had the birds out in the computer room - I kept finding it hot and the Boy kept responding that he had lowered the temperature setting. Finally, later in the evening, he decided to look at the thing..and noticed that it was indeed not producing any cold air.
This little breakdown made me happy that the birds were in a room that tends to be a little cooler - as the rest of the house was getting warmer and warmer, their room was still very comfortable. Sadly, this little incident meant that the birds spent most of today in their room in their cages (as we waited on someone to come look at the unit - we were fairly lucky that there was some available time for this today). The repair guy found the problem, which does involve a part to be replaced, but did have a temporary solution to get the unit going...I'm just hoping it keeps working until the new piece comes and repair is made!
