Guess what? Socks went on the feet for the first time in over 6 months yesterday. Temps overnight hovered around 32 degrees meaning winter has finally arrived in this part of the country.
We were so enjoying the unusually warm temps, but know that we couldn’t expect it to last any longer. Even though the nighttime temps are chilly, there’s not a cloud in sight so during the day it’s quite pleasant. If you allow yourself (or are tempted) to sit quietly in the sun for a few minutes, you start to feel incredibly sleepy as there’s a chance you might doze off as you soak up the suns warming rays.
Last night we resisted the urge to fire up the biodiesel fueled heater to banish the cold that was creeping in through the house. Instead we just piled on another layer of clothing.
It’s definitely a challenge not to use or purchase something even though it’s considered a “green alternative.”
It’s time to go throughout the house and spot drat causing problems. I bet with the increase of heating costs this winter, there are many who will be looking for cheaper ways to keep warm. Do you have tips for keeping warm this winter? Share them with fellow readers at: our forum
