Hydrate Yourself


Hydrate Yourself

Originally uploaded by shecodes.

We’re in the middle of a major heat wave here in Kansas City. We’ve been keeping water in these metal lined bottles in the fridge/freezer. It’s so much better to drink water instead of soda. πŸ™‚

Our air conditioning is still out but we should have some relief on Monday when the repair person is due to come look at it. The dilemma isΒ  whether or not to fix what we have now, or to replace the unit. The price difference is huge. I’m more for patching it for a few years instead of getting a new one. But then again..

We had several really bad heat days. But we’ve had cooler weather for the past two days. When this happens, I go take more photos.

This picture was taken because he didn’t feel like eating the chicken I so often cook. I don’t remember my mother ever cooking macaroni and cheese. Spaghetti, yes. Chicken on Sunday, meatloaf once a week.

In fact, the meals were pretty predictable when we were growing up. When Dad retired, that changed. He took over some of the cooking. I left home three months after graduation, so I didn’t go through some of the interesting food choices my siblings did.
