Did you ever have someone tell you they could detect the aroma of snow in the air? It was the number one statement of our mother.
- Whenever it got freezing as well as humid, she would take an immense whiff of air as well as say it smelled exactly like snow.
She was cheerful if the two of us even got a couple of snowflakes. It seemed to make it sound as if she knew what she had been talking about. The funny thing is that our mom didn’t understand snow when she got older. She was uneasy about slipping as well as falling. She wore a sweater just in case it got cool in the house. Even before fall arrived, she was reminding me to have the heating as well as A/C idea cleaned as well as run tests on. I would hear how our mommy always called the heating as well as the A/C supplier in early September. She really wanted nothing to happen to our gas furnace in the middle of Winter. She was always mindful of keeping her as well as us ladies comfortable as well as safe. As soon as she mentioned having the gas furnace or air conditioning component run tests on, I would put it on the calendar. I wanted her to think that I had listened as well as it would be done. She looked at the calendar every day and I didn’t call the heating as well as the A/C supplier until she mentioned it again. She would look at the calendar as well as tell me that this week was the day to make the call. While she sat there with me, I would call the heating as well as A/C for heating as well as A/C inspection, as well as I would mark it on the calendar. She always wanted to make sure she was up, bathed as well as dressed, before the heating as well as the A/C specialist arrived. She never wanted to be caught in a less than respectable position and be embarrassed.
