Much stamping of feet and temper tantrum throwing!
Global warming, indeed! That is a joke.
We've had three nights of frost with daytime highs in the 40s. Today is a bit warmer, at 55 degrees(F). While this duplex is not my most favorite of abodes, it does have one very good feature. It was built solid and insulated well. In the summer it is hard to get a cross breeze, so opening up windows isn't an option often. But when the weather cools down we are able to leave windows open and heat off much longer than most.
But the last few nights below freezing have sent us below 60 in the house at night. With my hot flashes, that's not a big deal for me. But the boys who like to run around barefoot and in t-shirts are complaining a little bit. Mean ole Mama's answer is, "Put socks on, get a blanket and put a sweater on." While we miss him greatly, it is probably a good thing my honey is traveling again. He likes things toasty and although he's very frugal, we'd be bickering about the thermostat. The weather is supposed to warm up just in time for his return this weekend. That's a good thing!
The leaves are still on the trees. I am soooooooo not ready for winter! Fall is just starting as far as I am concerned. The boys and I took a fall walk so I could get some annual photos. Here's a glimpse.
