Today, despite some rain and clouds it was possible to leave my stove unlit until 4pm.
I was thinking how much cheaper life is when it’s warm. Even right now I still don’t have a light switched on.( it’s nearly 17.30.) When it gets warmer I will have constant warm water without ever turning on the water heater. I don’t have air conditioning and won’t be getting it. Luckily I have a fan and my house is half underground and part of it remains cool even in summer.
I am so looking forward to the season of free heat.
It will be lovely to do yoga with leggings, a teeshirt and bare feet instead of 3 jumpers, jeans, socks and trainers. It’s too cold to take my shoes off as the house hasn’t heated up in the early morning.
I will be able to paint in my workroom where it’s too cold to spend time now, but in the summer it’s lovely and cool.
Sigh….not long now…..
But today was a fine working day.
I finished yesterday’s local scene by adding a towel drying on a line and a plant in a pot on a balcony. ( I feel unreasonably guilty for adding something that wasn’t there.)
Then I started the next one and got on well.
(Am a little worried that I am now speaking to myself in a lilting Highland accent after all these Hamish Macbeth audiobooks.)
Thursday has become shopping day.
The sky is still blue even though the wind is blowing fairly loudly. But I’m inside with the stove on , a glass of wine and some cheese I got as a gift. Jazz playing on youtube and it’s nearly the weekend.
