Turning Up The Heat
Yesterday, for the first time in the season, I turned on the heater. At my house, typically, the heat goes on on Halloween night but our weather has been unseasonably warm and I haven't been cold in the house. Yesterday, I put the heat on for about 15 minutes in the evening just to take the chill off. Then it was off again until this morning. I set the temperature very low overnight because I don't like the air to be too warm. I like to be all cozy under the covers while breathing the cooler air. Toward this end, I also put the flannel sheets on the bed. From now on, I'll probably jump up about 15 minutes early, dial the temperature up and then hop back into bed until the house warms up a bit. No, I don't have a programmable thermostat and, yes, I know I should get one.
