Can we talk about a weather disappointment? We were received all of these warnings about the temps crashing into the low 30s (F) overnight. "Heavy Freeze," they warned, and this morning I woke to find the temperature sitting at a solid 40 (F). There was a warning for a heavy snow squall that also failed to materialize. Not that the temps aren't cool outside, they are, but they're not cold.
I got a lot of things done yesterday, including sanding down the outside of the kitchen cabinets and get a coat of primer on them. The 30 gallon tank in the living room got cleaned, (today the 50 gallon in the writing room will get a cleaning). Three loads of laundry were washed, dried, and folded. Today looks to be about the same. I will need to get a new heater for the tank in the living room; the old one died. That means a drive over to PetSmart. There's also more sanding and priming on the books for today.
My PCP had scheduled me for a physical on November 13, a Monday, a day I always work, so I took a personal day in order to drive down to the Lebanon VA. Then my countertop installers called to tell me installation was going to take place on the same day. Rats. I figured there was some reason I wasn't supposed get the physical (my last one was only 6 months ago), so I cancelled it. The soonest I could reschedule was in June of 2024. Wowza! I will be driving down to Lebanon on Friday to get my updated Covid and my yearly flu vaccine and with the leaves still turning, it might be a nice little road trip.
And rat haired Marsha spit out another blatant lie on "X," the far right conspiracy based social media platform. This stupid woman claimed that Hamas was holding 500 Americans as hostages.
