I've had a no shopping for a month experiment and now the no heat experiment. As soon as the company left after dinner last night I turned the heaters off. We have two separate heating systems in the house, with a thermostat for each. One is in the family room the other in the hall. Their temperatures are 63 and 61 respectively. My bedroom is at 59. It's 35 outside right now and it's supposed to get up to 61 later today. I'm not expecting the house to warm up any!
What am I wearing? Just a pair of sweats (the sweatshirt has the sleeves cut off at the elbow) and a pair of slippers with fur on the inside. I have a wrap around my neck, which isn't any different than if my sweatshirt was a turtleneck. No hat, no gloves. My fingers are cold. I know those of you who live in the cold climates must be laughing! Cold at 61 degrees! The grand kids haven't noticed it's cold. I know people who will hang out in t-shirts and shorts in 61 degree weather. Lucky them. Me, I bundle. I like 80-90 and won't complain too much during the 30 plus days of 100 degrees.
I'm not turning on the furnace. I'm not putting a fire into the wood stove. Maybe I'll have a fire on New Years Day because it's a holiday. We'll see how we fare.
I wonder what the next experiment will be? No cooking with propane for a month? No, get that thought out of my head!!!!!
