New wash machine

Our Maytag washer stopped working last week. The repair man came this morning. The parts to fix my DEPENDABLE Maytag will be over $300.00.......parts, only the parts.....ugh!

So what did we do? We bought another Maytag.......washer only. Our dryer still works just fine. (Keeping my fingers crossed on the dryer lasting longer)

I hate going to the laundry mat. I need to wash our sheets and towels but do NOT want to put them in the nasty washers in the local mat. I figure we can sleep on week old sheets until Tuesday when the new washer is scheduled to arrive.

Of course with the temperature hitting 102 (don't even know what they think the heat index is & I ain't gonna ask cause we know it is HOT) we will have double the stinky, dirty clothes to wash.

On the bright side I would rather have a sick/dead washer then to have anything wrong with my air conditioner............how did those poor souls live back in the day without fans and central air????

Hope it's cooler where you are!

Private


Finished reading PRIVATE by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro........wow......in one evening. Could not put it down. It had such a good flow.........I only got lost/bored once. Not a bad read.


Gonna work in the studio today. Make something pretty......at least I hope it's pretty.

Hear that?

No not the loud bang and pop of fire works. That soft sigh sound. It's my thirteen trees in the back yard enjoying the rain. Sweet relief from the baking sun and cracked earth. The poor trees had already started defoliating. Hmmmmmmm looks like someone left her tools out to get "washed" :o)




This is where Maggie spends all her outside time while kids are setting off fireworks. She is SCARED of things that make loud sounds. Not a happy doggie! Such a sweet face tho.



Luzs dog BaiLea had to check out the yard then returned to the patio to shake off the rain. Yep she got everyone of us wet. Happily wagging her tail after she gave us our "shower".

I was hoping we would get a good soaking rain so we would not have to worry about fires from the neighbors celebrations. However, the rain needs to end so it won't spoil the kids celebrations. I and my fur babies plan to stay in the house most of the day tomorrow and tomorrow night. Our house is NOT a fan of fireworks.
We hope all of you have a safe & happy 4th.
