Life is nice when you're Cozie

I am the proud new owner of an installed ceiling fan.  I’ve been the proud owner of it for a few months now, but it wasn’t until Sunday that it was installed.  Dad taught me how to do it, and I would like to start by saying that due to our attic not being properly ventilated, it was around 115-120 up there.  I released more sweat in 15 minutes than any other time in my life combined.  It was cool.

I got to cut a hole in my ceiling, dig around in attic insulation, wire some stuff, and assemble stuff.  It was a miserable job, but I’m really glad I have a ceiling fan/light and that my dad has the patience to teach me to do things.

[Uncle] Charley won’t sit down for more than 5 minutes.  He’s already fixed our vacuum, made a HUGE tire swing, replaced our windshield wipers, starting making bows and arrows and now he is working on our quad.  He had plans to make a 500 foot zipline but said he doesn’t have the time this trip.  However, he did call around to make sure he could buy that big of a steel cable in our area.

I taught another sewing class today and it went well.  I’m really happy, because I was nervous when I first started.

So….ah….anyone keeping up with the blogging debates/ arguing going on?  I’m reading, but not participating because I’ve never seen a debate change anything, and most people get really frustrated over it.

Have a JOYFUL week!

    it was 115-120 up there? what does that mean? do you mean it was 1:15 – 1:20 up there? as in it took you five minutes to do the entire job?

    Attics are cool…. in the winter! I live in one, it's remodeled and stuff for living quarters but still, I can look at my thermostat at any given time and it will be about 95 degrees. No A/C up there 😀 ah well, I'm used to it. 😛

    I've been watching the debates lately. I think it's gotten off on the wrong foot. Some debates solve issues, but only when both parties are willing to solve the issue. Otherwise you get people on the defensive and they'll feel like it would be comprimising their beleifs to do it. Soo yeh, I've seen a few debates do a few good things, but not usually among teenagers 😛

    By The Way; Hi!

    Congrats on your new ceiling fan! I have seen David put up at least 30 ceiling fans over the years… I like to be his assistant by handing him the screwdriver or picking up screws that are dropped. I despise having to hold the thing up there while he secures it into place. It makes my arms hurt.

    So there you have it. I am a complete sissy when it comes to installing ceiling fans. I just don't wanna learn.

    Same goes for a stick shift. Nope, no desire to learn. Why, when I can have an automatic? And why on the fans when hubby can do it?

    I'm glad you're sewing class is going well! How many students do you have? I can't wait to see how everyone's projects turn out. Keep up the good work!

    hehe, one of my brothers likes to figure out peoples types based on this system. He'd be the same as you if his assumptions are correct. 😀 Only problem is…. he's not all that goofy. 😛

    Yeah, no kdding. People need to be willing to change for what's right.

    hehe, Well, things break at their own times around here… We live in a 103 year old victorian house with old wiring and coal heating. It's interesting!

    Dear Coie, It is so completely awesome that your dad is teaching you how to DO things, not just be a helpless girl. And I know one day you will be in the market for a husband. And I just happen to know a really great guy who will one day be in the market for an awesome wife, of the kind you will undoubtedly be. So I'll get back to you in a few years. (JK) (but sort of a little bit serious too) Karen (
