Well, the weather outside is delightful with the morning temp in the mid 40s (F). Today's high temp is supposed to be in the mid 70s (F), and by Friday we should be in the mid 80s (F). Over the weekend, however, the bottom is predicted to drop out with overnight lows in the mid to up 20s (F). Yes, that's right, they're predicting us to be below freezing. The time has come to move my garden hose down into the basement.
Remember, winter is less than 2 months away.
The measure tech came and measured for my new countertop yesterday morning with some sort of apparatus on a tripod that held a large tablet. He used lasers, and took pictures, as well as the old reliable tape measure. He would touch the screen and it would make short, high pitched beeps. When he was done, I dragged my finger across the screen to sign my approval. It took him all of fifteen minutes. If there is an adjustment in my quote, I should be getting it today. Installation is scheduled for November 7, the day before my birthday.
I stayed up late playing Starfield, mostly because I was told I'd get a nice ship if I finished a certain number of quests. So, I completed them and got a very nice ship that has a crew of 5. To be honest, however, the real reason I went to bed so late was because I was having fun playing the game. It can be very addictive! Because part of my character build is Empath, I can sometimes persuade characters to do what I want, without having to shoot them. That sounds bad, but it is fun! And, of course, the fact that I'm playing as a hot ginger doesn't hurt any.
