I had gone through there on my way to other places. I always feel really good in Arizona. I love the way the air feels. It smells really good too. The sky is so huge and blue.
I didn't know about the monsoons. I didn't know that they get so much rain. Today they will be getting hurricane Odile. They just had Norbert last week. They get thunder and lighting. This storm looks like it will be a big one and as the weatherman says, right where she lives to expect from 3 to 6 inches of rain. I can't even begin to tell you what it feels like to know my daughter and my grandchildren are in the path of a hurricane. When they moved there, it was a huge God thing. She moved to an apartment that her Mother-in-law picked out for them, in a town they didn't even know. It has turned out to be such a nice place, and yes, they get rain, but it isn't the flooding that some of the other areas get in Arizona.
That air conditioner has been so noisy. I constantly hear it all night long and all day. I had learned to live with it so I really had put it out of my mind. Then the guy fixed it. It doesn't make a sound now. I have to go right up to it to listen to see if it is even on.
This is the good thing/ bad thing that happened. The man that came to fix it I want to say, was professional, and went above any repairman I have seen in a long time. He explained things to me and worked so hard. It was hot yesterday and I felt so sorry for him. He had taken the part of the air conditioner with the motor out to his truck to do something, when he got to the driveway for some reason the motor just fell out on to the cement and broke.
Maybe there will be wool in my future. I do wish I prayed more and worried less. Now off to the repair shop for the truck. I know that when it gets back it will be nice and fixed too. Or I hope. It really is true, that " the more things you own, the more they own you."
Have a lovely Wednesday,
When you're born they have to do your thinking for
you because you can't do too much of that yourself,
and then they get into the habit. They keep trying to
think for you practically all of your life."
