Day 1031

I finished two articles today and shipped them off to their destinations. I ordered a new muslin backdrop for the upcoming Christmas photo season. I made a few minor website revisions and that was about it. It was a busy day, but it wasn't very interesting. A lot of days are like that. Hey, I did see a rainbow though. That's always a good sign.

The furnace installers arrive tomorrow morning and I still haven't cleaned all the stuff out of the utility room so the HVAC guys will have a place to work. The utility room is kind of like Dr. Who's Tardis. It seems bigger on the inside. I'm always amazed at how much stuff has been crammed into the little room every time I have to clean it out. I may have to take off the door as well. It seems like I had to take off the door a few years ago when the front loader washer arrived.

I'll probably board the dogs tomorrow. The HVAC guys said that the dogs wouldn't bother them at all, but the barking will definitely bother me. I know from experience that Dot will bark continuously throughout the entire four hour installation procedure. The last time repair people were in the house, she barked so long and hard that she made herself sick. She actually got a sore throat and came down with a bad cough. Everybody thought she had kennel cough, but I knew better. She had repairman cough.

Since I won't be able to leave the house tomorrow morning, I went out and had my weekly restaurant breakfast this morning instead. The waitress got my order mixed up, and to make amends, she brought me some free bacon. I don't know about you, but to me, free bacon is even a better omen than seeing a rainbow.
