We are temporarily enjoying cooler than seasonal weather and very grateful for it.
However, that doesn't mean we don't need artificial assistance in the house. This place has a new central air conditioning unit--new in June, 2014, that is--that works very well. Except in our bedroom. Mr. B has tried to look in the very limited attic space, but the duct work seems intact. Every room is comfortable besides the one we sleep in; very annoying. Even with a standing fan on it is dramatically warmer than the entire rest of the house. Mr. B came up with an invention to fix this situation.
Because the light fixtures are those hideous rectangular boxes for fluorescent bulbs,it's impossible to install a ceiling fan.Unless you're the creative type, like him.
My friend Tricia asked why we made a special trip in search of bungee cords and zip ties one weekend: you see the reason. To get the supplies necessary to attach a Vornado to the ceiling, of course!
We had to buy more extension cords, too. Frankly, it doesn't seem that wonderfully effective to me. So much for putting effort into decorating the room and making an effort to spiff it up. If you wonder why I'm on the crazed side sometimes, reread this post. If I vanish entirely someday, check at The Dull and the Dutiful with Tricia and see if the reason is a head injury death from a fan fall.
Living with an artist definitely comes with disadvantages at times. Sigh.
Have a good one!
