Friday night I was supposed to be hosting for friends for a celebration of cocktails and brunch, and every so often we like to get together and just share some friendship times.
I certainly enjoy that I have friends that prefer to do this, as I find that working all afternoon makes it more challenging to find fun things to do.
I was looking forward to cooking my chicken, asparagus, and potatoes, but when I got home I discovered that it seemed awfully hot in my house. I headed over to the thermostat which hangs in the wall, and that is when I discovered that the thermostat was learning 83 degrees! I do live in the southeastern portion of the country, and let me tell you most of the year here it is quite hot, we have not yet reached summertime, yet, though oh, and I certainly did not ever expect for my house to be 83 degrees. I had set the thermostat on 75 when I left that afternoon, as I constantly do before I leave for work, and so, I knew something was wrong. I had 2 options. I could call my friends as well as tell them that my air conditioner was on the fritz and we would have to do our brunch another time, or I could try to have a good time with my friends even without AC! Of course, not only would the two of us not have the HVAC running, I also would be running the oven as well as the stove, so it was more likely to be even hotter here than what the thermostat currently reads. I certainly thought those were my only 2 options, so I called my buddy Jennifer first. I was quite overjoyed when Jennifer said oh, we don’t have to cancel, we can just have brunch at my place. I was so cheerful with Jennifer because normally people do not prefer to switch our celebrations at the last hour, as oftentimes our houses are not exactly clean all the time, but coming house to a thermostat that reads 83 is no fun, but having friends prefer Jennifer that you can count on is just fabulous
