Ticking Downwards

This morning’s indoor temp of 41º was our lowest of the season thus far (outside it was about 15º again).  That level of chilliness leads to honing of the out-of-bed routine;  I get socks, a fleece, and a hat on in under 15 seconds.  Having done that, it’s plenty comfortable to make breakfast, if you’re moving about.  Still, it’s the kind of temperature where even people like me see a good reason for lighting the wood stove.

    I’d honestly rather not live in a (lower case) cold house, but because my woodstove is too small and I have no immediate prospect of being able to get a bigger one, I have to deal with it.

    I follow your Cold House experiences because it reassures me that waking up to a house hovering between 45 (where I have my oil burner set to come on) and 50, and spending the rest of the day in winter in the 60s in the stove room and less in the rest of the house isn’t the end of the world.

    Unlike you, I don’t like it, but it’s reassuring to know somebody’s living perfectly happily in even colder conditions.
