There is the possibility we might have rain today. The sky is overcast and the temps are supposed to climb all the way up to 80 (F). Yesterday, our thermometers hit the upper 80s (F) and you would have thought we were in a screaming heat wave the way people were reacting. Crimany! You'd think they were going to start melting the second they hit the parking lot. My Central Air did kick on a bit, but only for a few minutes.
I did have an elderly woman with serious arthritis as a customer yesterday. She was going to live with her son and was having new carpeting put into her bedroom. She was paying for her room and he was paying for the rest of the house. This is going to be a bit of a complicated installation since they both want their carpet installed on the same day. I felt bad for her. She was fine once she was sitting in the chair, but I had to lift her up into a standing position after she'd chosen her carpet. That was a first for me, getting up close and personal with a stranger.
And, if any of you are wondering what I do when the days are slow and boring, besides wandering the store and getting thousands of steps in, I work on the next book. I take notes. Sometimes they're random points that I feel are going to need to fill in gaps, and sometimes it's who sections of chapters. This is what I did yesterday.
