This year I decided to participate in the Freeze Yer Buns Challenge by Crunchy Chicken. hosted by My thermostat has been hovering around sixty degrees, and to be honest, I really haven’t been cold. I’ve been wearing fleeces and sweatshirts and using my woodburning stove to heat the house. It’s been pretty pleasant.
We got our first electric bill in the mail since it’s been cold and it was $89. Not too bad! I guess I can get off Mr. Money’s back now. It looks like he’s living up to the challenge as well. We’ve been debating buying a programmable thermostat, but I think it would be a waste of money because we can do the same thing by turning it up and down ourselves.
I think I’m going to venture out to Goodwill today to look for some sweats and fleeces and sweatshirts if I get ambitious enough. It seems that on weekends (and cold ones at that) I like to stay home and relax and not go anywhere! There are many projects I can be working on: finish painting the living room (ugh!), working on some knitting for Christmas presents, and making soap for presents as well. I’m doing a lot of handmade gifts this year. I’ll keep warm by moving around and drinking tea. Sounds like a lovely weekend to me!
Have you been freezing your buns off this winter?
