October is marching on and so far the weather seems to be holding up fairly well around here. Fingers crossed it stays this way for a while. Calling for a positively balmy 59F (15C) with sunny skies here today, but i see some 'darkling shadows' for Sunday... are those snowflakes? Yeesh.

Tomorrow morning, I must get up super early and get over to the tire store and get my winter tires put on. Always a sure sign that winter is ahead. If you live in a snow area, I highly recommend them, makes all the difference in the world.

STK, hope you check in today and let us know how you're doing. We're all thinking of you.

Speak for yourself...weather has been ugly here. We went from no frost to hard freeze this week and we've had snow flurries twice this week. Our temps are about 20 degrees below average for this time of year. So, by the time it gets back to average, it will still be too cold to do much outside.

That stinks, Linda... it's coming, I know, but I will enjoy every single day of nice weather while I can... hope it warms up for you so you can finish your outside work.

I've been in this house for more than a year now, and they still haven't finished the back patio (and yes, nice mess they made of the concrete). This should've have been done a long time ago, but I guess they're having trouble finding a solution to this, and finding someone willing to do it... small fussy project, but needs to be done on at least 10 houses, but the contractors won't touch it.

The warranty guy was by the other day and said they're going to use a 'cement board' similar to what they used in the front, and paint it to match the siding. I dunno... I wish they'd just get it done already.

The nerve of those guys!! I'll bet you don't get a discount on your dues or your mortgage, hope you remind them about it all the time. :)
How's everyone today? My driveway is almost finished, probably less than a half hour and they'll be out of here. Hooray!!!

It would be nice if it were done before winter comes. Again.

That would be too much to ask for.
