Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Holding Out
With relatively new, very expensive, energy efficient windows and a brand new roof, I have been reluctant to turn the furnace on until after Thanksgiving.

So far, it's been a balmy 65-70 degrees in the house, but with the cold weather last night and tonight, it's beginning to slip a bit. The house is quite comfortable with a sweater in the house and a down comforter on the bed as low as 60 degrees. Below that and I may have to give in.

I also have a fireplace that can add anywhere from 3 - 10 degrees to the living room depending on the ambient temperature.

It's 64 degrees currently - so far, so good, and Thanksgiving is only 2 weeks away....

    You're doing good. I gave in weeks ago when it dropped into the 30's overnight. Granted the house is kept at 65 at the highest, but I draw the line at a 30 degree difference between inside an out.

    I can stretch it out longer by keeping a heating pad on the floor under my desk for my feet and a lap robe in addition to a sweater.
