Charmion De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019 (1125* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019 09 Sep 19


Summer is definitely over, even if we still have a few warm days left before the equinox. The temperature dropped to 9 degrees Celsius last night, and this morning the bedroom was chilly enough that I actually opened both layers of all the curtains. A bit of solar gain feels more like a good idea than the invitation to sauna conditions that is typical of July.

I'm waiting on payment of Himself's July invoice to the Public Prosecution Service of Canada before calling Rodney the HVAC guy to give us a formal quote and schedule air-conditioner surgery. Note to file: if you like prompt payment for services rendered, don't be a lawyer, and don't work for any department of the Canadian federal government.

Although PPSC is sluggish, God knows, the record for snail-like payment is still held by the National Archives of Canada, which arrogated to itself the right to take 90 days to pay contractors' invoices back in the late 1980s. Great way to drive their contingency workers into the arms of any potential employer or client with a habit of paying on receipt of timesheet or invoice.

The garden looks good, the house is adequately clean, and Himself's laundry basket is not stuffed to the brim. That leaves me free to sit around and read until I'm ready to go out for a nice long walk.
