billeyler: (snow cold penguin)
Got a couple of weeks, or maybe even six weeks, before we have the first serious freeze. It has been getting pretty chilly in the house in the mornings, down to the low 60s. Enough so you want a blanket on. To be kind to our houseguests this coming weekend, I shut down the swamp cooler, put the cover on the attic fan and changed the filter in the furnace. Still more winterizing to do, but all that can wait.

We have only five of our seven promised houseguests actually showing up this weekend. Two flaked out without telling us. No names, but it's the reigning HTQ and his significant other. Oh, well.

Another lovely, dry week of weather in the 70s, so the Balloon Fiesta has been going along as planned. I had heard one report that attendance is down about 30% this year, which I can well imagine. I still have to buy the tix only for the bus/fiesta for Deborah C-J and me for way too BFE Saturday morning, should probably do that tonight.

Got the quote today for the granite countertops, lower than I expected. Amazing.

Danny's back from his conference tomorrow, so I know he'll be prepping the house before I get back from work. He's been missed.
