Turned the Heat ON Today

October 21st, 2012 at 05:44 pm

I had to turn the heat on this morning. My mom was here visiting and she and DD slept in our living room. This morning it was 61F in the front rooms and my mom really doesn't like the cold. (I am not about to freeze my beloved mommy. Smile )

The furnace only cycled a few times this morning and then I turned it back off. We had another beautiful, sunny day, but not nearly as warm as it had been getting this past week. A few days back it was in the upper 70s to the low 80s. Today it might have gotten to 70F.. maybe.

Tonight I am baking a pasta dish in the oven. Again, using the oven for the dual purpose of cooking and heating. I don't plan to have the heat on overnight or use it tomorrow morning. It might rain tomorrow night, if so we will have the heat back on.

    Good idea with the oven! We too leave the oven slightly open after cooking if it's cold weather so that heat seeps into the room. Smile

    There is also something to be said for the delicious smells associated with oven heat! Somehow, I can't think of anything that will lead the air from the furnace to smell like fresh chocolate chip cookies. Smile Walking into a warm room that smells like dinner offers you some insurance of about 5 degrees of additional emotional warmth.
