Yesterday the weather was nice. Temps were in the mid 80s (F). Today's supposed to be a repeat. In case you didn't know, we're sitting on the front doorstep to summer. Looking at our midrange forecast, we're predicted to have sunshine and rain over the next week and a half. That's fine with me. I'd rather my lawn be nice and green instead of brown and crunchy this early in the season, that will happen in July and August.
Retail was busy when I got to work yesterday, but around but as the day wore on began to slowly die. When I left at 7 PM there were no incoming hordes of shoppers pulling into the parking lot. Sales for the past week were flat. The couple with the expensive blind order never came into purchase, now that sale price is gone and their blinds will cost more, that's if they decide to purchase.
Today will probably be the same as yesterday, only slower. There will the be standard after church rush, but then the quiet will ensue.
As I was preparing to leave work yesterday, I got a text from my bank saying that someone had tried to transfer funds out of my account. When I first saw it, I spoke vulgar French because my debit card had been hacked not too long ago. However, once I saw that my bank wanted me to sign in to my account to fix the problem I became suspicious. What I did do was wait until I got home and then, on the computer not on my phone, I signed into my account. Oops. No warnings. There was nothing wrong at all. However, this means someone out there knows the bank I use, probably from the card hack, but not my account number. Believe me, that text looked very official. Even the logo was spot on.
So, about a year ago I gave away my weight bench and now, 12 months later realize that was a mistake so I bought another.
