bundled up, walkabout, snow

Chilly morning

It's chilly this morning. Crittersaid it was 34 °F when he was letting the dogs out. Wunderground says it's 46 °F, now. When I was getting out of bed this morning, I thought I felt cool air coming out of the vent. So I just now asked Flar if he'd changed the system over to AC. Nope. The kitchen thermostat is reading 63 ° and there's cool air coming out of the vents in here. Flar's got stuff going on this morning, but he's going to check the pilot light and other stuff when he gets home.

Meanwhile, I'm going to shower and dress warmly for the day.

I remembered to check my PDA this morning: I'd scheduled an appointment for the dogs, and for my car, for today. I'll take a book with me and wait for Autotech to be done, and then probably take my car over to Powers, as well.

slow start

Mind, I expected to be slowed down a lot more than I was. I took the dogs to the vet and got my car's AC checked out much more quickly than I'd expected. No discernible leaks -- which implies the coolant leaked slowly through winter-lazy seals.

I started in on the kitchen part of the list, and was interrupted by a pleasant surprise: knightaudit brought me lunch from Popeye's. Yum.

Getting back to work, I'll finish the dishes, and probably opt for unpacking rather than starting in on quicken.

Just today's list:

  • Took dogs to the groomer & vet
  • Took car to Autotech for AC check
    No apparent leaks
  • Clean Kitchen:
    • Wiped down counters

Sunny day

It's warmed up. Outside, at least. ;) Need to remember to remind Flar about checking out the boiler before dark, though.

Well, at least the dishes are done. I'll have to tackle the table when I get back.

Home again

I didn't get hold of Prez, so I'll get the records from her tomorrow.

The dogs are all clean-smelling, and diligently working to get rid of the shampoo odor, by rolling around in the yard. The scotties look like little zebra dogs when they're freshly groomed. Flood loves going to the vet. More attention! Dizzy is about the same, and Ouchie is okay after you finish dragging her through the door... The vet agreed that Ouchie seems to have healed without the need of surgery. Yay! Our little miracle doggie. :)

Chicken Helper for dinner, since I haven't planned anything. I'll work on unpacking, while the chicken is thawing out.
