Today was 102. When i got up at 4:45 it was 82.

When I designed my tiny house Daughter 1 said that I MUST make provision for an AC unit. I did not take that too serious until today.

By late morning it was 100 in the new house. That really caught my attention. So i began doing research. Units as small as what I needed are not too easy to find. I read reviews and instructions. I checked on line. Sears had just the unit I was looking for and it had decent reviews.

So we drove over to the areas shopping center and bought the little AC.

Next year we should be able to stay cool even if it isn't.

Daughter one can be a bit impetuous.

Last spring we talked about the benefit of having chickens on the one acre "farm." then suddenly there was two then 4 more and before it was over we had 10 baby chickens. It turned out that all but one was female (a pullet I am learning!).

That was a while back. Daughter figured they would begin laying in August and this week they began.

This morning I made two omelets. One for me and one for Miriam. Each used 4 little pullet eggs. It was very good.

I didn't hire on as a cook, and I have not made many Omelets a long time.
