Hello Monday! It was cold this morning. According to Accuweather the temp was 29 (F) outside, that'll Definity put frost on the pumpkins. Afternoon temps, however, are again predicted to climb up into the mid 50s (F). One of these days I'll have to check out UGI (my natural gas company) to see how much money these warm temps are saving me. You won't find me complaining, as long as hot temps during the summer don't offset my winter's savings. This past summer we missed much of the heat and it did wonders for my electric bill.
The retail world was slow yesterday.
I'm off today. Usually Mondays are work days, but I requested off, firstly for a physical, but then that got cancelled because my countertop was scheduled to be installed today, but then they installed it a week earlier because...? Maybe because it wasn't a difficult installation? The installers were only here for bit over an hour. One thing they did that I truly appreciated was take the old countertop away. There was supposed to be a charge for that, but I was told not to worry about it as one of the men carried it out of the front door.
Another expense was added to my debt, a new TV. My old Sonia Bravia was over 7 years old (really 8 because it was a 2015 model I bouth 10/23/2016). Turning it on it meant a 2 minute wait just to load all of the tiles on the main screen. Two years ago, my Disney subscription needed to do an upgrade the TV could barely handle (I had to clean out the cache, and 2 other files). It happened again last week with Paramount +, it wouldn't download and upgrade. So, tomorrow, a new LG C3 arrives. It seems as though everything I have is beginning to break down due to old age. Rats!
I'm going to be planting milkweed! It's a great plant for pollinators and Monarch butterflies! It's going to be replacing the Burning Bush that was in front of my porch.
