It's been a big day

I was expecting three visits today from different people.  One didn't happen, but I know Rick (of Rick's Heating and Cooling) is a busy man this time of year.  So, no air conditioning yet.  It may be Monday before I see him, but it'll be a happy day when he comes.

My first visitors of the day were two guys who came to exterminate my ants.  You can read about that HERE.  If need be, they can come once a month for $35 per visit, since they're already at the old German Church in town.  That's cheap, and if that's what I have to do to get rid of the ants, I'll do it.

My second set of visitors were the Culligan men.

They installed this monster, which takes up some of my precious closet space... but I have my priorities.  And I have other closets.

They also installed a reverse osmosis thingie, so Cliff and I don't get extra sodium in our system.

So all our water for ice, drinking, coffee, tea, and most cooking comes from that new faucet on the right.

I purchased a Bunn coffee maker some time back, but didn't use it because hard water plugs a Bunn up fast.  I've been through a couple of them.  But tomorrow morning, I'll have me some GREAT coffee!

Even Cliff has learned to love that expensive little coffee mill I recently purchased.  Isn't it cute?

I LOVE your little grinder! It's sooooo cute! My Aunt had one like that only bigger. I used to admire it when I was a kid.
Hope you enjoy your long awaited GREAT cup of coffee in the morning.

Yes those air conditioning men are a welcome sight. I still remember the first day we turned on our central air after mel had installed it in our old house in san antonio. You are gonna love it. Paula
