Outside, the weather is a brisk 44 (F) and those individuals who get paid lots of money to forecast heat waves and deep freezes are saying that today's the last cool day for a while. Tomorrow the temps are supposed to climb up into the 70s (F), and by Friday we're supposed to top off at around 79 (F). And no, for those of you who are desperately waiting for Indian Summer, this is not it. As I've said before, Indian Summer only happens after the first frost, of course, now that we're beginning to deal with Global Warming, that might not happen until well into December.
I do get to go in and work today. Hopefully it will be quiet.
I also get to call the granite people and select my slab. I have the purchase order number to verify that I'm actually going to have it installed. The installers will be here tomorrow to measure and build the template. Then, if things go well, my new countertop will be installed in two weeks. While a number of things need to be done by then, I don't foresee anything cataclysmic happening. It's just painting and laying the vinyl plank flooring, which means crawling around. Believe me, it's not the crawling around that bothers me, it's the standing up afterwards.
And I was down in York yesterday to lunch with my friend Betsy. It's always Chinese buffet and Dairy Queen, and desert is always a Blizzard. Yesterday I had a Royal New York Cheesecake blizzard. It was okay. I was thinking it would only be chunky pieces of cheesecake and I was wrong. There was some strawberry sundae topping inside which wasn't to my liking. I suppose that's because while growing up, my mom only bought two types of jelly, grape and strawberry. Now I really don't like either.
