42 degrees this morning. Brrrr!!!!

It’s nippy out this morning. 42 degrees outside, and 53 inside. I contemplated turning on the furnace, but it is so nice and quiet outside, I decided to dig out my little electric heater I used in Ody last winter. It seems to be working just fine. It is already up to 60, and I really only need it in the bathroom when I take my shower. Later in the season I will have to use my furnace. I’m hoping the little heater uses less electricity for now too, and it is much quieter especially now that I have neighbors in the back.

I didn’t do a whole lot yesterday. I did dig out my iron and ironing board. Discovered my $3 Salvation Army iron just didn’t work. It would get warm, but even at the highest temp, I could touch it with my hand. No wonder it took me so long to iron my clothes for the job interview a couple months back. So I ended up digging out my travel iron and using that to iron the pillow sham for the coffee table. I also pressed the table runner I got the other day at DG. It was too long for the table so I had folded it under, but it looked like crap. Looks better now. 

I put a door stop on the bedroom door because every time I hang my bathrobe behind the door, the door wants to close. Not a lot of space back there and the robe is quite bulky. And I hung a hook by the back door for my flannel shirt and jacket. I don’t really like it where it is, but there is no place else to hang it. Just puttered for a little while.

I read two books, and didn’t do a whole lot else. My new zero gravity outdoor chairs came, and of course, one of them is broken. AND, my new internet service has been canceled. It will no longer be available after the end of the month. That is a major problem. This means I have to go back to pay per gig internet since there are no other alternatives. I was so happy with the service. I could actually watch a video and stream a movie or a TV show I missed. I find it so hard to believe that there is no decent provider here. We aren’t at the edge of the world! I think it is time to make some noise.

I just sent emails to three news channels. Maybe one will pick up the ball and run with it. Lets hope. If Jake were here, the problem would have already been fixed. I wonder if I have any contacts left over from Jake’s efforts that might be able to do something, or know someone that could. I will have to think about that. My efforts might not come to anything, but it only takes one person to get the ball rolling, and I am going to try.

Work today and tomorrow, then five days off. Then my new hours start. This week I am on bathroom duty, so I guess I should look into doing that today. Not sure what it entails, but I’m sure it won’t be pleasant. 

I might be having someone come from Casa Grande to look at Ody on Saturday. I showed her once yesterday, but I guess the people really weren’t interested. No bites on the chairs either. Sigh…still early in the season tho.

  1. Just the thought of having 53-degree temperatures inside the house makes me queasy. I can't even tolerate the cold when it's in the low 60s unless I am in bed with a whole bunch of blankets and comforters, plus one dog and one cat. Maybe that's why global warming doesn't particularly concern me.
