It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Today is my favorite day of the entire year: the day we turn on the heater.

We figured since it was 18 degrees outside, and 57 degrees in our house, it was finally time.

Now it’s a glorious 70 degrees in here – I’m no longer feeling the need to wear gloves, wool socks, long johns, and a sweatshirt just to sit around the house.

I am warm, and life is good.

    Oh my heavens. . .fifty seven degrees? That is INSANE!

    We were like that last year – we kept the heater off as much as we felt possible. But it makes me miserable. I like my home to be warm and cozy, so this year we’ve kept it at 71, which is usually about right.

    Good grief, “child”! We set our thermostat at 65 degrees and that is chilly.
