As I walked up my sidewalk yesterday afternoon, I heard the lovely sound of the air conditioner humming away. Geoff said it came on at around 5:05 pm. Yeah!!! Then 20 minutes later while we were figuring out what to make for dinner - - darkness. So, we went out for a bite to eat at a local dinner thanks to http://www.restaurant.com. (for the frugally minded, we spent $21.00 total for 2 dinner entrees with salad bar & a yummy dessert (includes the cost of the gift cert.)! Not too bad).
I have to tell you about our dessert - it was soooo delicious. We had a cinnamon roll sundae. They brought out a huge cinnamon bun that was cut in half & very warm. In between the 2 halves was a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Around the cinnamon bun was a couple squirts of real whpped cream. All this had caramel sauce drizzled over it. Let me tell you, that dessert melted in my mouth & I'm sure went straight to the hips! This would be an easy dessert if you had friends over. It was different, but definitely delish!
From there we headed out to church to be with the Youth Group. When we got home around 9:00 pm, our electricity was on!! Yeah!!
It's kinda sad, but you don't realize what you take for granted until it's taken away. My gratefulness for hot water & electricity has increased!
