Day 26 of 30
I hope all of you are safe and warm with all these horrible winter storms hitting the US. We are expecting rain over the next 3 days and our high temps will only be in the 50's. Pretty cool for us desert rats.
Today I am very thankful for warm clothing. I refuse to turn on our heater since I just turned off our A/C the first of November. Hubby and I both are just layering our clothing. I love my long sleeved undershirts that I wear under my blouses. I have leggings I wear under my jeans. Naturally my knitted socks are nice and warm and always on my feet. My house is sitting at 69 during the day and when I wake up it is around 64. The coolness forces me to move often which means my housework gets done in record time. I also, do not shy away from using my oven since it adds heat to my home. In the summer, it seldom gets turned on for the same reason.
I am sure some of you are thinking "64? that's warm for us". In the summer my house sits between 77 and 80. What temp is your home at? In the winter I have the heat set at 68. It all depends on what your body is used to. Our summer temps are often 110 plus so when our temps in the winter are 40 it is down right cold for us. I have tried to explain this before and people just do not get it. So put it this way:
110F to 40F is a 70 degree difference.
Take your normal summer temp and subtract your normal winter temp. Is it 70 degree difference? If so, then you understand us being COLD!
Thank you warm clothes for allowing me to keep my heater off for a little bit longer.
