OKAY - I'm complaining... a teeny, tiny bit!
A crisp, chill has hit the Central Coast! Our condo is situated in a "dip" (not a trench, valley, fissure or crevice) - ummm, perhaps it's a "gulch" & the temperatures in our driveway are 3-4 degrees colder than the house on the corner. BTW, we are the 12th house from the corner.
I drank a pot of coffee, two cups of hot tea, took a long, hot shower and I'm still chilled-to-the-bone.
Our abode (house, nest, condo, castle, crash pad) was 57 degrees this morning! Yeck! Last night, I set the heater was at 70 (in hopes of getting our small abode warmed up). NO LUCK! So, this morning, on my third call I was able to book an appointment with a repairman.
Umm... the part is being shipped (the switch on the circuit board fried)! Hopefully, it will arrive & be installed Friday afternoon?? otherwise, it'll be a chilly weekend in the E-E abode. Before you feel too sorry for me, we do have a gas fireplace downstairs... even with the fireplace running for 6 hours this morning I wasn't able to get the temperature above 62 degrees!
I had a dr appointment & back-to-back meetings this afternoon & evening! upon my return at 7:40 this evening, I cranked up the fireplace full-blast & the temperature has reached a high of 62 degrees.
SO - I'm taking my stack of library books to bed! ohhh! I love flannel sheets... & I'll grab a quick warm-up in the shower before pulling on my cozy jammies (warmed in the dryer). I realize I'm not being energy conscious! & I'm very thankful for a roof over my head!
Ohh... a couple of friends kept me company while I was waiting for the repairman to arrive this morning... talked to JPE this afternoon... he said it sounds colder on the Central Coast than in Cincinnati...
BTW - his dad was moved to a care facility this afternoon! Hope to see pics soon.
Stay tuned for more news from the Central Coast..!
