Barefoot by the Sea: The heat is ON

The heat is ON

Our annual "We will make it till November 1st without turning on our heat" has officially ended.  We actually made it until November 5th.  As soon as we hit our goal, we reassessed and my husband insisted we could make it until December 1st.  However,  his plan fell by the waste-side after we got down into the 20s for consecutive nights. A couple of nights, I can handle - I pretend I'm in Little House on the Prairie (complete with my nightcap) and snuggle under the covers.  In fact, the nights are cozy and warm under many, many covers.  The mornings, however....just too chilly.  

So, once again, we lost to our friends in Maine who have yet to turn on their heat.  Perhaps I'm a wimp or they are supplementing with another heating source?  Call me a skeptic.  Either way, if you are from New England or in another chilly part of the country and have yet to turn on your heat, you are TOUGH.  These days have sent a chill through my body and I'm so very happy that we have heat and can enjoy our cozy little home as we crank the heat - to 60 degrees!  After living in a 50 degree house, 60 feels mighty sweet!

Hope you are having a great week friends.  This will be the week that we hunker down and really start our Thanksgiving plans!  I for one, am ready for some delicious food and time with the family! 


  1. You crack me up! We don't have our heat on yet, but we are running our eden pure and have our rooms blocked off. Between the eden pure in the living room and baking in the kitchen, we stay pretty toasty. But our house stays pretty warm to begin with because of the location and the sun we get. Proud of you though!

  2. Oh our heat has been on for weeks now! The hubby HATES to be cold!
