JUNE 22 to 26; Back to work and A/C quits
It was a busy week! Every day I had some delivery or pick up to do and when not doing that, I was working around the shop doing odd jobs and taking old window apart for the aluminium. It got progressively hotter as the week went by, reaching 35*C by Friday and to top it off, the A/C in the front of the MH quit on us! I got Mountain View RV Repair to check it out and get a new one.
They got one by Thursday but unfortunately it was the wrong one so they had to order a new one. By Friday evening we still didn’t have our A/C replace so we were stuck without for the W/E. The bedroom one is working though, thank god!
We went to our local Pub on Friday evening for dinner. Their A/C was also malfunctioning! This is not our week!!! Val worked today and she had a surprise visit from Aud and Marcel who were down here to buy a new bike but couldn’t stay as they were on their way back to OSOYOOS.
JUNE 27, SATURDAY; Mattress delivered
I got a call yesterday that our mattress would be delivered today between 1 and 4 pm. They got here at 12:30 pm which was fine by us. We went to town shopping and doing errands. It was a very HOT day: 38*C! Sure glad we have two A/C as the one in the bedroom is cooling the whole MH right now; not very effective but it keeps the extreme heat down in the living area.
JUNE 28, SUNDAY;
HOT, HOT, HOT!!! And to think that a couple months ago we complained about rain and cold! We got energetic today and worked on a few maintenance and cleaning projects. I got the utensils drawer fixed, installed a bar on the screen door and cleaned out a few things out of Beaver and into the basement or garbage. In the afternoon, we went for a drive and ended up at the “WILDCAT GRILL” in Rosedale for lunch. It was OK but not great. It is a new place, was almost empty and took a long time to serve lunch! We got on Hwy 1 for our return home; traffic was heavy from everyone returning home from the W/E. I boiled and BBQ’ed CHWK corn and steaks for dinner then we relaxed in the house with the A/C on full blast. I tried sitting out for a while but it was muggy and still hot….very uncomfortable!
JUNE 29, MONDAY; an unwanted day off!
No work for me today so I washed the Jeep. In the evening, we sat outside for a while and had dinner at MR MIKE as it was just too bloody hot to cook inside
JUNE 30, TUESDAY; Work
My day began with a run to Burnaby then to Aldergrove. Back at the shop, I unloaded the doors then spent a couple hours taking screen doors apart and saving the slider wheels. Kevin and Rochelle are going to Vancouver to bicycle with the kids so we took his canopy off so that he can load everyone’s bike. I also heard from MOUNTAINVIEW RV and they will be at our place tomorrow to install our A/C --- FINALLY!
