A lot may have to do with construction - insulation and airflow.

SO put in a whole house fan Friday/Saturday. One of the things he missed from the other houses.

Can you open all windows today trying to air things out? When will your new fan come? Can you replace ceiling fixtures with fans with light kits?

It's too hot to open the windows. I open them at night. :)

 I cannot replace ceiling fixtures with fans because 1) I hate ceiling fans and 2) this is not my property.

The fan has been delivered according to the tracking. I'll pick it up tomorrow after work.

Post office doesn't deliver on Sundays. And I use a PO box.   The post office is closed on Sundays and I use a post office box, so even if it had been scanned in I wouldn't be able to get it. Maybe your carrier is using his truck for personal use or maybe he works on Sunday in some other capacity than delivering mail.

The fan has been delivered, according to the tracking. Must have come in late yesterday afternon (after the PO was closed to customers)

If you have Sprouts in your area pls check their weekly specials - lots of lavender.

No Sprouts around here.  I'm in the NorthEast.

There is actually a lavender farm not far from me that I visited this summer.  I didn't buy any of the products, though:  I had wanted to buy some liquid hand soap, but it didn't really smell like lavender.   :-\

Your property most likely is well insulated.  Mine isn't.  As soon as I turn the ac off, the cool disappears. Oh well, what would I do if I dind't have something to whine about right?

The fan is scheduled to be delivered today "by 8 pm" but of course, the post office isn't open after 12 so I'm out of luck until Monday.  Silly7

Your PO doesn't deliver on Sundays?  I sometimes see our carrier driving around on Sundays.  I think they just started doing that this year.

As for insulation . . . I have no idea.  I have an evergreen behind my deck, which faces on the south/southeast side, so it blocks a lot of the sun.  That's great for keeping my place cooler in summer, not so much for letting the sun warm my home in the winter since it keeps its needles.  The issue I have is that a unit on one side of me is vacant, so there's no one there heating/cooling it.  So my heat (in winter) or a/c (in summer) seeps through the wall to go into the other unit.  And now the unit next to THAT one is also vacant, so there's no one on the other side to help heat/cool it with me.   :(  Oh well, not much I can do about it.

I hope your fan comes soon!   fingerscrossed fingerscrossed fingerscrossed fingerscrossed

SO has a truly portable for the garage. Yes, he spends a lot of time in his play room. It cools a 22x36ish space down 20 degrees in 30 minutes and makes very little noise. Wynter is the brand. He has the 14SH - air/heat/dehumifier. Yes, he got out of bed to check it for you.

Thank you! (and tell him I said thank you too) bananamiddlechild

Baked enchiladas in minutes.

Cooked shredded chicken (some left for the aunties of course), thinly sliced onions/bell peppers/hot peppers/garlic sautéed in a bit of oil, drained black beans, shredded cheese (SO likes Pepperjack), enchilada sauce (I use home made which takes 90 seconds). Mix well, spread on flour tortillas, roll up. Pls do not over sauce and overfill. On the slightly oiled wire rack seam down, spritz with a tiny bit of oil, 3-4 minutes until starting to brown, turn around, sprinkle with cheese (be careful to keep it on the enchiladas). Do not go away!!!!

We were both very hungry and two each were almost too much which is one breast. They freeze well unbaked. Place them without touching on a cookie sheet, freeze, transfer to zip bag. I defrost on the wire rack or a cookie rack to avoid soggy bottoms. 20 minutes max. The do well in the micro or oven after being frozen but do not get the crunchy crust. I keep them around as hot pocket replacements. A quick snack or lunch and I know what it is in them.
