I've got to go away -... Baby it's cold outside
( Me) I Can’ do it again …...........Cause its cold outside
( Her) Get your new Snugies…..Cause there nice inside
This week we have seen the coldest days yet going in to this late fall season. The snow has not fallen; there is no ice forming on the many ponds that are part of the world we live in. The heat in my
house has not yet been turned on and I am cold. How I wish I was staying at the Mud Pond camp right now with the wood stove burning at a high temp and the ability to walk about in my boxers and be comfortable.
I live in the city on the second floor of my house and must pay all the money for the luxury to stay warm. I don't have a wood stove and wish it was part of my world. I will also say that I am just a little bit frugal. My beloved hard core German wife has repeatedly told me that we should put an extra layer of clothing on because it’s not that bad outside yet. Our heating bill has never been figured in to the October Budget.
I did ask Helene the perennial question this week that I have asked more times than I can remember!...... Will this Halloween be a trick or a treat as far as the heat in the house goes? (You figure that one out) she will always reply… You will give thanks at Thanksgiving.
I now have to then ask the question of everyone that does not have a woodstove, Pellet stove or any of those luxury’s of life. When did you or will you turn up the heat or are you living on the edge with a good set of ?
Have a smile here cause its all about us.
