The last few years, Florida has had much hotter weather. Winter never came. In January, we saw 90 degree temperatures.
We were still
While I am thriving, Danny is freezing . Of Course he has been cold all summer when it was in the 80’s here.
The AC has only been off one day. Today will be the second day. It’s ran approximately 355 days this year. The furnace has been on the last 4 days. FIrst day it was on, it was 72 degrees in the house. The AC was still on in the afternoons as it reach 76 degrees inside.
When It’s Chilly (for Danny) I turn the furnace on about an hour before he gets home. Leaving a window open wherever I am.
And A fan.
I took a shower this morning . I actually felt a chill as I got out.
It was 66 in the house.
I AM SO VERY THANKFUL FOR THAT CHILL.
That would be Danny, EXCEPT he won’t bundle up and wear layers.
I got as far as the above photo when I realized 2 things :
Danny was home. (Baby girls goes crazy)
Most importantly, the house had NEVER WARMED UP.
The furnace WASN’T RUNNING.
I AM VERY THANKFUL THAT DANNY HAS NO IDEA WHAT THIS BLOG POST IS ALL ABOUT:
MY BEING THANKFUL THAT IT’S COLD OUTSIDE.
As SORRY as I AM for DANNY right now……And I am. I never want him to be cold or to suffer.
I am very glad that it is COLD OUTSIDE AND NOT HOT.
Selfishly, I am loving it. Not the furnace part but just knowing I may actually have to put on WARM clothes.
I love sweaters and housecoats…..
Not even sure if I have a sweater. LOL
I am dreading it though. Danny is really frustrated.
He is still ON CALL til tomorrow morning, but is OFF Monday and Tuesday.
I had to tell Danny that the front gate isn’t working. The cows keep chewing on the wires.
So he had to deal with that, this afternoon . AFTER he was technically off.
Then He walks in the door and I hit him with the furnace not working.
It was 70 in here at the time. Should have been at least 74 degrees.
I am Thankful that we live in Florida and while we/ HE may get cold(COLDER) it won’t really be COLD out. It should only be in the 50’s.
I am very thankful that we have 3 space heaters.
Plus I can run our oven if need be.
I am thankful that the park has to pay for whatever is wrong. (Air handler isn’t turning).
I will get up after I post this and light a few more candles. It’s fairly dark outside and it’s not even 4 PM. I am going to find layers of clothes for us.
Get our robes out.
The booties that my mom made for us.
I will be fine.
Danny…..Not so sure about.
Love and Hugs From Florida,
