October has arrived.
Sunday has arrived! The temps are supposed to climb up into the lower 80s (F). I don't doubt there will be those out there calling it the beginning of Indian summer. Wrong. Indian summer happens after the first frost, which is when the temps drop down to around freezing, 32 (F). That's probably not going to happen for at least a month... if it happens then. Climate change, you know? If this year is similar to the last 2 we're going to have a bit of a deep freeze in mid-to late December, possibly another 2 weeks of really cold temps in January, but the rest of the winter will be mild, at least for Central PA.
For those who don't know, today is Homemade Cookie Day. Guess who is not going to be making any cookies? I did completely debox the dishwasher this morning, and it looks as though I might be doing that install myself. Yippee! And it also looks as though I'll be doing the plumbing for the sink, as well. I figure, if it can save me $400 why not. I have done plumbing before. I also have a somewhat Ace in the Hole, as Jon, the PT who's giving me PT advice on The Body in Motion, is also a plumbing specialist. I guess I'll find out just how good he is. At his suggestion, I've already bought some supplies.
