It was pretty darn cold day here today (I don’t believe it got over 45 degrees) and it was cloudy and rainy. As a result, there is a bit of a chill in our house. I just checked and our thermostat is showing 63 degrees. That’s one thing that is great about our house. Even though it’s over 100 years old it keeps in heat very well.
We haven’t had to turn our heat on yet this fall and today is probably the coldest day we have had so far. I am hoping that tomorrow will be a wonderfully sunny day and the sun can shine in. Again, I thank the makers of this house for having the windows on the sunny side of the house! I’m sure they were thinking frugally back then and it’s helping us out a little bit present day.
So we are all bundled up more than normal and I am just hoping we have a little break in the yucky weather so the house can warm up a little bit. All I want is to buy a little more time before we have to turn the heat on.
It’s sort of funny, because quite a few people in my area talk about “when they had to turn their heat on.” I think sometimes it turns into a contest among the locals.
For us, if we can make it to October I’m pretty happy. If we can make it to November I’d be jumping off the walls 🙂
