To Heat or Not to Heat?

May 18th, 2011 at 07:30 am

I turned up the hot water last night - back to winter levels. It was getting chilly. Will turn it back down in a couple of days, ideally.

I'd probably survive, but knew the air would be cold this morning. (So, probably needed hotter water in the shower).

The house was about 67 degrees this morning. IT's comfortable (I don't even have slippers or socks on at the moment). BUT, I was worried another cool night and we'd have to flip on the heat.

No need to fear. Weather calls for 80 degrees tomorrow. Well, okay then.

It's been raining cats and dogs. So unusual for this time of year - this colder rain. I just feel like huddling under a blanket with some hot chocolate.

80 degrees tomorrow? Are you kidding me? Wishy washy weather!

Thankfully it looks like we won't have to turn the heat on in May. Usually we have the air running by now... Don't get me wrong - I am enjoying that we haven't had a 100-degree day yet. Big Grin But I think my body is just really confused - feels like winter.

    Do you have an automatic blanket? Often when I'm not sure about turning on the head, i try that first. After all, when you sleep the only place you need to heat is where you are.

    That sounded kind of zen, didn't it?

    Actually, we never use the heat at night. As intolerant as I am of cold, I prefer cold for sleeping. & the house never drops below 60, even in winter. (If we run the heat during the day, anyway). I swear by my fleece and knit blankets, which trap body heat very well. But, we don't get REAL cold here. Wink
    I think the gas heat would be pennies compared to anything electric, anyway. We pay very little for heat.

    I'm more just wondering if it is going to get colder or not.

    have successfully resisted turning on the heat for 1.5 hours in the morning to get the kids out of bed - made homemade hot chocolate at least 2 or 3 times as incentive instead.

    also using the heating pad for 1/2 hour or so before bed to warm it up, will let the 11 yo girl have it too if she wants.

    a...l...m...o...s...t made a fire after work, but made cookies once in the oven!

    I just made a baked a batch of frozen cookie dough last week (leftover). I should have waited a week - it is good baking weather.

    I can never tell - I'm at "that stage of life" where my internal temperature fluctuates even more than the outside temperatures. Grr.

    LOL. We turned on the heat because it's cheap now, but typically we heat to 62. Prebaby it was 55. Funny how things seem so different based on where you live.
