99% Complete

Been running my full backup of drive E, which has all my videos, photos and most of my docs. Approximately 4 TB. Started at 6:30 am, now at 11:30 pm is 99% complete. It backs up to an 8TB NAS drive from an 8TB internal SATA drive. I should probably increase the NAS drive storage size.
The usual morning. Those jumbo HB eggs are a PIA to peel. Probably should have cooked them longer and added vinegar to the water. Or was it baking soda?

Watched football. The Raiders sucked again, the 49ers crushed Carolina with some amazing running plays. Kansas gave away the game to Green Bay.

Field trip to PetSmart for a litterbox cartridge and to charge the car. First 30 minutes it charged from 30% to 82% but another half hour only got it up to 90%. There's some issue with the batteries and fast charging that final 20%. No problem slow charging, but that costs $$.

Home because diuretic was working. Watched a streamer in Colorado in the snow.

Off to Target to exchange a SodaStream cartridge and played on the laptop in Starbucks, which was very crowded and no good places to sit. Their wi-fi was horrible so ended up reading from the Kindle app. But the line was minimal and for a change my drink only took 5 minutes to make.

Target's restroom is a mess, not just that it hasn't been cleaned, but also the stalls don't lock properly. Three stalls are all one unit, when one door is opened with any force, all three unlock and swing open. Rude. Very rude.

The air downtown was smoky. Not in my neighborhood, though.

Home, more football, no streamers. I didn't stream. Tired of talking to myself. I can do that here. Watched Creature Features on Tivo. Special Halloween edition it was shot in Winchester Mystery House. The MC annoys the crap out of me, the butler is a poor man's Lurch. Make that a destitute man's. The cute little girl character is adorable, I wish she wasn't mute. They used her well - she's about the same size as Sarah Winchester, and her skipping through the halls and posing in front of windows fit well. The movie was horrible, as it should be, dubbed pretty well into English. It took me almost a minute to realize it was a foreign language film originally. Nightmare Castle (1965) Amanti d'oltretomba says IMDB. Italian.

Took out the garbage.

Backup just finished, yay!

Email from realtor, she'll drop by flyers with the new price tomorrow. Scheduled a potential buyer visit for Wednesday 11 am.

Lunch salad and a small lasagna meal
Dinner salad and two Salisbury patties over rice

Plans for tomorrow:
The usual morning. There may be storm chasers.
Probably stay indoors to avoid the smoke.
Read. Play piano.
Monday Night Football
