Heat

three bags

Originally uploaded by nonsonoitaliana

Shhhhhhhh! Don’t tell, but these are the three bags I made for my two nieces and one nephew. I finished them awhile ago, but am only now getting around to posting the photo. Sorry the photo quality is so poor.

It’s been rough the last few days, adjusting to our cooler apartment: we got a thermometer so I can make soap, and so accidentally discovered that we were keeping the house much warmer than we thought.

The thermostat is a joke, maybe 4.5 degrees off (that’s Celsius, folks, so 40.1 F). Instead of keeping a steady 19 C (66.2 F), we were sweating at 22.5 (74.3)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank goodness we discovered this, as gas prices are scheduled to rise in January. Needless to say, I am wearing another sweater and often have a blanket wrapped around my legs. No complaints, though.

    At last I am comfortable here. We have discovered with the small propain gas heater in the sitting room we are able to close the door to the living room and from the dining room to the living room and keep warm. Now the rest of the house is not so warm and it is comfortable to get under the covers to go to sleep at night. Lots of blankets are needed.

    In the last week, however, it has been so cold that the furnace runs frequently during the night and it gets hot then cold. Anyway, I am much more comfortable in the cooler temperature.

    It’s true, cooler can be better. We both are sleeping better as well, I think, and Ilario doesn’t sweat anymore!
