Yesterday was warm, the temps climbing to 86 (F), heating the house to point where the Central Air kicked in. That's okay. It was only for a few hours. This early into autumn, I can live with that. Rain is in the forecast for tomorrow bringing cooler temps to the area; highs in the upper 50s (F) are expected. Time to break out sweat shirts and pants and pack away the shorts and Ts.
My new neighbors are not happy with their house. The first time I met her she talked about the new appliances, so I think for her and her husband that was the main selling point. Do Not Buy a house simply because it has new appliances. Now her complaint concerns the lack of wall outlets. "Only 2 in the living room," she's griped about every time I've talked to her. She also voiced her opinion that they weren't told about things like that, and I thought she should have realized that was her responsibility. When most people buy a house, they walk through the rooms and picture where their furniture is going to be, so if they decide their TV is going to be on one wall they usually check to make sure there's an outlet. They are going through what may be a very expensive learning experience.
And the kitchen is proceeding nicely. All the cupboards and cabinets are in place, all the drywall has been hung and every hole covered. Late yesterday afternoon I installed the drain pipes and this afternoon I will install the fixtures. Tomorrow? Probably the dishwasher. Once that's done, I can begin painting. There's some tile work I need to do around the stove. And, of course, there's the floor; that will make these creaking bones ache.
