Shut the Door, the Air Conditioner’s On!

I am so happy to let you know that my friend, Mrs. C, is at home now, recovering from her month-long ordeal.  She is healing well, so let's pray that continues! 🙂

She is actually the one who suggested I share the following picture with you, after I shared it with her this morning:



This is our air conditioning unit, as seen from my bedroom. :)  She is quite a monster, I know!  But she gushes forth lovely, cool air to keep (most of) our house at a moderate temperature.  My dad is eventually going to be ducting those 3 holes to the individual rooms in our house; and the plan is to wall this corner in like a closet with some pretty louvered doors.

So, now that our temperatures have hit the 90's, we are staying nice and cool with our "lovely beast".  I am thanking the Lord for all the ways He is blessing me lately. 🙂

Isaac has been sick for the past 3 weeks.  At first it was just a cold, but it eventually turned into a sinus infection. 

And with the illness came the seizures. 

I'm sad to tell you about that, really.  I don't want you to be discouraged that we have lost ground again.  It's ok, really.  We had about 2 months of such clarity with him, and we wouldn't trade that for anything.  It was really wonderful.  We don't like the seizures, but they "normal" for Isaac, and we are not complaining.

Here's something yummy we tried today:


It's called "Sweet Annie Kale Salad" from the recipe book "How We All Went Raw".  It was quite a surprise to us that we both liked it.  Next time, though, I will add more garlic, and substitute craisins for the raisins.  You know I always tweak everything!!! 🙂

I've got a few new smoothie recipes I'll try to share with you soon, too.  We are diligently trying to get back to our healthy eating plan.  We begin to feel lousy and sluggish when we are not sticking with it as we should. 

I have been sick for about 2 weeks:  bronchitis, according to my
self-diagnosis.  I am on antibiotic now, but the cough is
l-i-n-g-e-r-i-n-g – unfortunately.  I hope to be back to church and
choir and LIFE soon! 🙂

No new report on Mama Gail.  I'm sure we will be talking with Mike
soon, and will let you know if there has been any change.

Keeping my eyes set on Jesus (because, really, what else is there?),

  1. The a/c unit does look like a beast, but a lovely friendly one ;o) So glad you have it and it’s working!!
    That salad looks good. I’ll have to check the recipe. Hang in there!! Eating right does feel good, doesn’t it :oD Have a wonderful day!!


  2. So sorry both you and Isaac have been sick! Hope you both are feeling much better really soon! Bronchitis is the PITS! :/
    Whoa..that is some A/C unit! I wish we were in the 90’s, so far it’s been one of the coolest May’s…sigh. Soon I will be complaining about how hot it is though…lol.


  3. Really? That one is an AC? Wow! It surely is a beast! Anyway, regardless of how it looks, what matters is that it continues to provide you and your family the ‘cool’ air to make you all feel comfortable in your home. By the way, I’m just curious, how long have you been using that AC?


  4. Woah, this is certainly a huge AC unit! Is this monster-but-definitely-a-hero still working until now? Anyway, I just love this unit! The thought of cooling down every part of a house with a single functional component is just amazing! 🙂
