Sunday Post #510


 
This week the fun was all about our air conditioning. It died Monday and I was told it wouldn't be fixed until Monday of next week, due to a part ordered. Well, they showed up today (Thursday as I'm writing) and thankfully it's fixed. And working overtime to cool the house! We had 90's this week so... fun.  

In other news I changed my story title for the Camping series. As you know I was inspired by an image and a concept but the story has grown and is not even remotely about camping, hence the change. I'm calling it The Sands of Time (sorry if that sounds pretentious) but the story has taken off so hopefully no one is put off by a title switch.  

Walking tours are back.  


Here is this week's lyric. 
I can't see you, 
But I can hardly wait   

Here is the lyric f/ last week and the answer      

Love isn't always on time      
      

   Song of the week

  1. The cover looks cool, also I like the name of your new story. Sands of Time has a mysterious fantasy feel.

  2. I know I lived a big chunk of my life without a/c, but it's so hard once you've had it to have it taken away. Sorry you were out for so many days.

  3. We've managed to stay in the 80's, so I haven't had to turn our AC on quite yet. I'm fully expecting that to change in July, sadly.

  4. Ooof, that's way too hot for no A/C. I'm glad you got it fixed!

  5. There is something about splashing waves or rain humming. So soothing.

  6. I don't think we've gone above 85° here yet. Which is good because our wiring is so old it can't handle a window AC unit. About five years ago the landlord, who lives downstairs, rewired his apartment so he could have a window unit, but didn't care about ours. ๐Ÿ™„ We actually had normal spring weather here for a change this year. It didn't go from freezing to 90°+ in the space of a week in May like it usually does. ⛅

    I would have called it The Camper. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I'm looking forward to reading more. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ

    Thanks for the Dream meditation ambient. ๐Ÿค—

    Have a wonderful new week. ☀

  7. Sorry to hear about your air conditioner, but glad it’s fixed. We’ve had to replace our dishwasher and washing machine this summer. Ugh. Hmm, I’m going to have to think on this week’s song lyrics!

  8. Esperรณ que arregles tu aire acondicionado y me gusta el cambio de nombre en tu historia. Te mando un beso.

  9. I'm glad you got the AC fixed, this is like the worst time to have your air conditioner crap out!!! Isn't that how it always goes though, lol...

  10. So glad the AC is back and hopefully all is well with your writing too! It has been hot here too. We were supposed to have all this rain..I don't know where it went.

    Thanks for the "Dreams" I probably needed it sometime last night. I did go to Schlowsky's yesterday and it was a trip getting there with all the roads being repaired..and then we get there and an oven is broke and there was a line. .. But the original was well worth it. Although, I don't always have foods like this and of course, in the middle of the night my right hand seems to know this. Anyway, back to the library. We are having a big puzzle race tomorrow.

    Hope you can rest up this weekend. Thanks for your comments!

    1. Good to hear from you. Hope the writing is progressing where you want it too. Thanks for the comments. Oh, it felt like a long day at the library. I have to admit I hate giving out the prizes...I mean, I like giving prizes but all the rules and what not to get through..is quite a process..first finding out what the kid needs to do on one apt then having to physically set up a challenge..dang..you're gonna give them a book sooner or later. Hope you find something good to eat this weekend. We are down to only one Schlowsky's now.

      Happy Sunday๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿง๐Ÿ’—

    2. That's awful about the smoke. Hope you guys are staying in..and it helps. We got a downpour this morning..but it had been really muggy just the same. I feel it's been a hectic week..for some reason. Hope yours is better๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™❤️❤️Thanks for the comments..yes, I've really done it this time..a summer of living with your ex...(✿◡‿◡) I had never tried that before. I mean, in reality, once broken up I never went back. But I thought it was an interesting scenario. I have been told more than once that I'm not a romance writer and of course, I like it that way.

  11. glad you have a good AC now....
    I was in Japan around 1990's, such a great country on that time... thank you for sharing video, just remind me about Japan

  12. I am glad to hear your AC is fully functioning. It could not have been fun without it.

    ReplyDelete
  13. It's interesting how one can start off doing one thing and landing up doing quite something else, as in writing. Good luck. Bonne chance!

  14. Oh Hawaii - I miss you! Thanks for sharing Greg! Have a great weekend.

  15. Is that Tarzan I see? About the Godzilla stories. I picked them up on NetGalley, so they may still be available. I have watched all of them and I love the cheesiness of the old ones.

  16. Hold the Line! I knew I knew the song. I have no idea what this week's is. Glad your AC is working. We had a week of frosts last week and now it's raining. Have a great week. :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ugh, I can relate to the AC issues since mine is out at the office. Glad it was fixed a bit earlier than anticipated. Of all the times for temps to rise, right? I think the title change - definitely seems to fit better. Hold the Line is such a good song!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh, this is not the time of year to have trouble with your AC! I am glad that you were able to get it fixed sooner than expected.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Air conditioner break downs are the worst! And of course it always happens on the hottest days.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm glad you were able to get the a/c fixed. I can't imagine not having it when the temps are so high. Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  21. It was so gross hot this week! I was melting over here every time I stepped outside. I am glad you got your air fixed!

    ReplyDelete
  22. AC problems suck. We went through that a few years ago and ended up having to get a whole new system. Huge pain in the rear. I grew up without AC but now I cannot live without it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ah - Hold the Line by Toto takes me back... And I'm very glad you've got your a/c fixed promptly! We are nudging 80 here in the UK and houses here simply don't have a/c - it's generally not hot enough, so plenty are feeling tired and grumpy because the nights are unpleasantly warm. Let's hope it cools down a bit for all of us! Have a great week, Greg:).

    ReplyDelete
  24. I am sorry about AC Greg! It's 90 here too and we don't have AC so I feel you!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Glad you got your AC fixed! And I think your new title Sands of Time fits your story better. And I hope more installments of it are coming soon. :D

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh man, I'm glad they were able to come early and fix it before you had to suffer too much!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Places in the UK don't have AC as standard, we have a small portable one which we use extremely sparingly because it costs a lot in electricity.

    *hops on Google to check conversion of F to C* - yeah, the 30s would mean we had the AC on, definitely! Iesu Grist. On the plus side, if it was 90C, you'd be dead, so, small mercies ;)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I had a story I started with an idea and once I got going it totally changed from what I was thinking it would be into the type of story I usually end up writing, so I totally understand the change! And oh my, AC out during 90 degree weather is not fun! So glad they were able to get back to fix it earlier. Hope you've cooled off!

  29. I can barely imagine life without A/C nowadays. It's such a game changer! :D Loving those walking tours. I remember when checked out one for Tokyo at night. So much to love until we finally go there ourselves! :D Take care, Greg!

  30. With those temps and no A/C, I'd have to stay in a hotel until it's fixed! Glad it gone done earlier than expected. I like the new title. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Nooo not fun. Luckily our house has a unit for each floor so when our went out this week in 2020 (main floor) we still had the upstairs running. But that's hot and about what we will have this week with late afternoon showers some days.

  32. Ugh. Sorry your A/C went out, but glad it's back now. That is so miserable. Sands of Time sounds good. Here's my SP: https://bonniereadsandwrites.com/2023/06/25/sunday-post-lots-of-cabbage/

  33. I'm glad the AC folks were able to get yours fixed earlier than they said, but ugh, days without it? Ours went out one year, and it was NOT fun. My sympathies.

    I'm sure people will forgive the series name change; it just means your work is evolving and growing, and that's good!

    I haven't heard that Toto song in ages; it was fun to listen to it again.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thank Heavens you got the AC fixed. We had seasonable weather all week but it is so hot and humid today. I knew it was Toto!

    ReplyDelete
  35. So glad the AC is fixed! I love the Hawaiian Beach walk and Dreams. Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh man...I've experienced my AC dying in the heat of summer a couple times so I feel for ya and I'm glad the thing is fixed! Looking at the weather app, I'll probably have to turn my AC on starting on Friday. And probably move my bed to the livingroom since the window AC only cools that room. lol I'll be missing the central air system my mom's house in Arkansas had, I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Glad to hear you got your AC fixed sooner than expected. I don't know about where you are, but here we've had the hottest temps of the year so far this year.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Faulty air conditioning is the worst when it's hot! Glad to hear you got it fixed. It hasn't been that hot here yet, and we have a lot of shade at our house so we haven't had to fire up the air conditioner yet, but that's about to change since we have higher temps coming our way. I look forward to some new chapters of Camping/Sands of Time! Stay cool, Greg! :)

  39. Glad the AC got fixed. I don't know how we would make it through the summer without ours.

    Good luck with your story. I like the title change.

  40. Looks like writing is still going well even if the AC gave up. Great it was fixed earlier than promised - always better to under promise and over deliver!

  41. Congrats on writing progress and it sounds like you're loving the direction it's headed. Thanks for the visit.
    Have a terrific week.

  43. Air conditioning problems are no fun at all. I'm told that mine uses a refrigerant that is no longer available. The next time it goes out will require us replacing the system. So far it is working great. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    ReplyDelete
  44. You are so fortunate to get it fixed so quickly. My son's broke right before this last heatwave and it is not fixed yet. Thankfully this rain has cooled it down some.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh no. No air-conditioning this time of year. I read a news headline where a woman died due to the heat after calling for air-conditioning repair that took a week. Glad you didn't die. Here's What I'm Reading

    ReplyDelete
  46. Thank goodness for an AC fix! That sounds miserable! I like your new title!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Glad to hear your AC is fixed. It's been especially hot over here so I can't imagine if mine is broken down.
    Hope you've a great week!

  48. So glad your air conditioning is fixed! Hot days without it are terrible. Enjoy your week.

  49. The A/C always breaks when it's hot doesn't it??

  51. I'm envious of your air conditioning. I don't have it in my house, and it's 86 degrees in the room where I'm typing right now. It's nearly 100 outside. I hate it.

  52. Gotta love when a story changes. So good bye camping

    ReplyDelete
  53. It has been SO cold and rainy here. I mean, I don't hugely mind it, but summer is so short, you know? So glad you got your AC fixed because that is a nightmare. I have been reading a lot about the heat waves around the country. Scary, that.

    Idk if I have even started the Camping (or rather, Not Camping™) stories, I am really behind, but I know I need to catch up since I have enjoyed the others!
