I know that I have promised to post on the recent acquisitions of the yarn variety, but my time just is not my own. The wedding is next week and I am running constantly preparing -- long ways to go yet -- and cleaning the house for the expected company. Mike is here tonight and he is planning the ceremony with his Dad; Joe is going to be officiating the marriage.

Anyways, here is another new acquisition. It is not more fun than yarn, although it is pretty useful on these hot Arizona afternoons.

Last week we got rid of the old swamp cooler and furnace. They were both original to the house; the furnace was extremely inefficient and the cooler was on its last legs. It was leaking into the ductwork and the thermostat had quit working.

The crane showed up and lifted the old cooler off the roof.

Then it lifted the new Carrier heat pump unit to the roof.

It was a pretty good show for the neighborhood.

This sucker works really, REALLY well.

One of these days we will get around to the yarn and the WIPs.
