Turn the heat up

Well, I made it past my self imposed start date to turn the heat on – October 1.  Prior to that date, I refused, unless of course there was a danger of my pipes freezing.  That didn’t happen.

I would have made it a bit longer, BUT, one of my dogs and I don’t mention any names (the blonde one) decided to eat my slippers and my feet are cold.  Now, I could wear shoes, but I don’t like wearing them in the house.

So, this morning with the outside temperature hovering around the -1C mark and an expected high of only 8C, the heat was turned on.  Not too high, 18C, just enough to take the chill off.

Perhaps a bit counter productive, the bedroom window is still open a bit – I like the fresh air while I sleep and I like a cold bedroom.  The vent in the bedroom is closed though, so at least I am not pouring hot air directly outside.

The “fall” is rather short here in Alberta.  We seem to go from summer and then within a couple of weeks, winter sets in.  I am hoping that I won’t see any snow until late this month, or, perhaps maybe even November.

Anyway, the house is warming up.  My gas bill is also, I am sure, warming up as well.  Keep warm.
