I am so grateful that I have air conditioning right now… Working outside in the garden all morning undoubtedly takes it out of me, plus it is so nice to be able to come inside plus sit down in the nice, cold air cycling through the house. In these moments, I suppose to myself, ‘this rocks.’ And yes, I think I’m a bit absurd. Gardening is a single of my number one things to do. I love the heat on my back as the sunshine beats down. I love the smell of flowers plus pine bushes. I even get a odd joy when I pull up a week by its roots. I can’t explain it, but it is absolutely my number one activity. So imagine how I think in the Winter, when the ground freezes over, plus I don’t have much access to my number one pass-time! Sure, I can have indoor plants. I have multiple of them that I keep inside year round so they’re out of the heat or cold. It just simply isn’t the same. I can’t make as much of a mess, which is half the fun in my mind. I’ve spilled a pot inside before on accident plus the dirt went all into a single of the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C vents in the floor. I had to stick the arm on my vacuum down there plus even then I didn’t get it all out. I just ended up having my Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C vents cleaned. The Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C tech that did it commented on the amount of dirt inside the ducts. I acted like I had no system where it came from. It was either that or reveal to this odd guy that I hired to wipe the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C ducts that I am clumsy plus uncoordinated. I felt pretending I didn’t think anything about it to be the less embarrassing option.
