That is not such a tiny triumph, either. Stability is a good thing, so big thumbs up.

Not so much a triumph as a "rescued from my laziness in the nick of time."

The weather's been getting a bit chilly in the evenings with lows in the mid-high 30s. I had been putting off harvesting the last of the garden goodies (mostly herbs and carrots). This past Saturday I finally got off my butt and with the wife's help harvested it all, rinsed, dried, sorted and put it away (some for long term drying on racks and the rest in the fridge/freezer).

This morning it was a brisk 17F, our first real hard freeze of the season. Had I not gotten motivated my sage would have been mush and my carrots would be much harder to dig out of the ground. I'm calling it a win.

We've already had three nights down into the 20s, but no teens yet.

Today, we've finally had the experience of going a whole 24-plus hours with no AC. Still a little stuffy in my apartment even with the windows open, though; it's 60-something outside, 74 in here.

Jeff and I brought in our patio furniture today -- after first cleaning it, and holy crap was it FILTHY (especially since I'd just cleaned it a week or so ago) -- because tomorrow they're supposed to pressure-wash the fronts of all the buildings.

Note to self: remember to shut the patio door and all windows before going to bed tomorrow morning/late tonight.

I may have managed to dayshift, after basically not sleeping last night due to insomnia, but still making a morning appointment. We'll see...
