Sunny Sunday has arrived. Temps outside are climbing through the 50s (F) heading towards the low 80s (F). That will be fine. This coming week is more late spring-like than what we've been having here; no highs in the low 60s (F). Of course, as we head into summer I am fully aware that Central Air season is also on it's way. Since summer's my time for T-shirts and shorts, I'm part of the "bring it on" crowd.
And we did have rain yesterday. More than I had been expecting. Soaking showers for a good part of the afternoon. Now the things I want to grow will start to grow again.
As expected, yesterday was oh... so... slow at the Flooring desk. I'm actually reminded of what it was like five years ago when I was continuing my step down from management. Things were slow back then. There were the occasional customers, but nothing like the horde we were dealing with during the Covid years. People are changing their priorities. They are going to stick with their current flooring unless their carpeting, or vinyl, or laminate needs to be replaced. They are now saying "I need," rather than "I want."
My Itoh peonies are beginning to bloom. This is the first year that both bushes have had flowers. One is a nice yellow, the other is more of a pale orange color.
