A New Furnace

We have a maintenance contract with Consumers Power. They will come and repair any of your gas appliances. We called them last October, the exhaust fan on the furnace died. A week ago the furnace didn't go on but Hubby cycled the power to the furnace and it started up again.  He called Consumers to check it out. The man came and before looking at the furnace said, "This is an old furnace we don't want to put any more money into it." (28years) He then went to the basement and condemned our furnace (which was working at the time), shut off the power and turned off the gas.  Hubby complained that it was zero degrees outside.  He said "Have a nice day." Today we are having a new furnace installed. Sort of an unexpected expense.  We don't recommend the maintenance contract with the energy company.

A Quilt Retreat

Carole and I spent the weekend in Holly, Michigan at the Create A Memory Inn on a quilt retreat.  It was wonderful. There were 8 other women there and they were all delightful.  The place is decorated so feminine with the kinds of decorations which would cause a husband to have a stroke. The food was out of this world, Bananas Foster French toast for breakfast, and coconut cream pie for dinner dessert. I got a lot done on my quilts too. I will share pictures when I finish them.
