happy friday, gang! today’s blog post is from the archives. you see, the djalali’s (including oscar and ollie) have been without air conditioning since yesterday. sometime around ten o’clock in the morning mr. style discovered our thermostat was out of whack. it was around the time the plumber arrived as there’s also a leak in our brand new water heater. and there’s a leak at our curb where our meter connects with the city or the sprinkler system as that sits right next to the city meter. you know that saying “when it rains it pours?” well, it’s true! i got so involved with monkeying with the thermostat for mr. style and turning faucets on for the plumber i plumb forgot about a lunch date with a dear friend…
anyhoo, don’t worry as the city is coming out to check the leak at the curb, thankfully, the water heater doesn’t have a leak – it’s the air conditioner. and the heating and cooling tech will arrive sometime mid-afternoon for a look/see. phew! the good news is we have a finished walkout basement with a separate air conditioning unit so we camped out in our family room and slept in the downstairs guest room ( i think i need to spruce that room up a bit – don’t tell mr. style). but our photo shoot with oscar has been postponed until next week. it’ll be a good one so tune in then.
today i’ve taken the liberty to repost a favorite ‘fridays with oscar’ from our days in San Francisco. yes, this is what you can wear on any given day all summer long in the city by the bay. you know what Mark Twain said, “the coldest winter i ever saw was the summer i spent in San Francisco.” that saying is also true!
oscar and i wish each of you a wonderful weekend. don’t you just love summer?! it’s such a happy time with bright beautiful colors.
