I hear that phrase in my head constantly. Anyone ever watch The Mummy? Not the 1930's version, but the one with Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz. It's one of my all time favorite movies. I've probably seen it 20 times, which is why those words stuck to some portion of my brain. Yesterday, it played like a broken record.
It's 70 degrees this morning. YIKES!!! There's no cool to be had. This is not going to be a fun day since I refuse to turn on the air until June. I may have to relent on that since it's predicted to be 95-100 for at least the next week. With PG&E's increase in charges, my bill is now $250 with only the well and lights. The same time last year it was $100. People ask my why I go to Tucson in the summer. It's because I can run my air conditioning 24-7 for $150 a month. SO ---- I guess I'm going to have to tighten my belt even more!
Patience prevailed however when the gardeners finally showed up after they missed their first appointment. They dug this sprinkler out to find the pipe 18" below to be broken. This might be part of my high electric bill problem, running out gallons of water and making the pump run longer. Gosh I HATE SPRINKLERS!!! I'm trying to figure out how to landscape the back yard with absolutely no grass at all.
