It’s Fall!

Fall / autumn has raised its pretty head – I love the leaves changing colour and the crispness in the air. I love that I am not boiling hot and uncomfortable. However, I am now freezing and I don’t like that either.

The KoD and I actually talked last night, briefly, about when we were going to turn on the heat. Just a week ago we had the a/c on as it was so hot over Sukkot. I just checked the thermostat and it is a chilly 65 degrees in the house.

I am wearing my jammies and a robe, and have a soft wrap over my shoulders. Even with fluffy socks on my feet they feel like ice blocks. I should be used to this. Montreal gets much colder. But, the last 3 years we were living in an apartment where they turned the heat on right at the beginning of October, whether it was needed or not.

What temperature do you wait for before you turn on the heat? And at what temperature do you keep the house?

    Tell the KoD he has a choice…turn on the heat, or a mink coat for the Mrs. KoD. A pink mink? naaah! ;)

    In Israel this is SO NOT AN ISSUE. When I lived in the states me and my friends would have contests to see who would hold out the longest! I never lasted to long–I hate it when my feet are cold!

    as a landlord, i have a legal obligation to give heat by the first of October until the first of May. The average heat indoors must be 68 degrees.
    That being said, we haven’t yet turned on the heat here. The temp is still roughly 70 indoors.

    the heat is on here although i have no problem shutting it when it gets too hot & to turn it back on once it gets cold again. i refuse to freeze!
