I am looking forward to Spring. I was watching the news this day, and they are saying the cold snap should soon end. They were showing a temperature that is in the forties for next week. We’ll guess appreciate we are in the middle of a tropical heat wave, and not just the December thaw. I am really cheerful, and my husband can’t wait. I called my mom and I had to laugh, because he told me that he wanted to come home for a couple of mornings. She figured that it would be hot enough for his to be in his dining room. She made a decision Last year that he was going to no longer use the small portable furnace we purchased her, because he was going to help us save on our energy bills. I tried to tell his that the portable furnace wasn’t that lavish to run, but he wouldn’t listen. She chose to go to my sibling’s and stay there until the weather warmed up. I was cheerful that he made the decision, because that’s when the furnace broke down. twice. The chimney began to clog, and we spent 2 mornings with no heat, while the deep freeze was on. We have the fireplace now working, the furnace is fixed and now working really well, and the deep freeze is almost over. This doesn’t mean that we won’t have more cold mornings this winter time, because this is just a reprieve, but mom will be home. If it gets cold, I’ll have his use the portable furnace, and I guess that our central heating method will be now working perfectly.
