Well here we are on the last day of August and honestly Fall is here. Poor dh has had to have his blanket put back on his side of the bed. Me, I'm always too hot, so never need a blanket.
Now normally I take the blanket off at the beginning of May, this year it was on until mid-June. I normally put it back on the bed by mid to late September, but its been much too cold for dh, so we had to put it back on.
I am hoping to hold off putting the heating back on until the end of September, but don't hold out much hope. We had the heating on, on June 1st, which is a month later than we normally have it on. We are still in double digits in the morning, but I am guessing frost will be here soon. I have had to put my jogging pants on, gone are the shorts.
I prefer the cooler temperatures, so I am not complaining, but a lot of people are wondering where the summer went too? The Fall is my favourite season of the year. I got more work done on the fireplace on the weekend, and it should be completely finished by Thursday. We have the guy coming by on Tuesday night to give us a certificate for our insurance for the fireplace. Then in the next week or so, we have to have a fire in the fireplace, to burn off the "new smell." We need to do that on a day when we can have the doors and windows open as its supposed to be stinky. I remember doing the same thing with the gas fire in our last two homes.
An update from yesterday. I left a note at our neighbours house regarding plowing the snow on our driveway. This we think will be the best way to go. We'll have to see if he gets back to me, and see how much he charges.
