For a while there it was looking like tonight would finally be the night when we caved and turned on the heat. It is 17C in the house, so really not that uncomfortable. But it's 0C outside so there is very little chance the house will warm up overnight and hubby has a cold. He did mutter several times about the temperature, but once he was tucked under the duvet the muttering ceased.

I don't even know why I do this. It's not like my house suddenly lights up with a big red 'furnace on' sign. I didn't sign a pledge card, I have no money or pride riding on this, but every year I feel compelled to go until at least Halloween without turning on the furnace. This means afghans, slippers, lighting candles, and lots of cooking and baking and any other sources of heat that aren't considered 'heating' your house. No fires, no furnace, no just leaving the oven door open and the element on. This year has been better than most, it has been fairly mild and I've been overheating at the drop of a hat so it's easy for me to show restraint. We did however discover that our Sasha loves to be tucked in under the duvet. I may have taken it too far seeing that my husky finds our house cold. But for now, another day with no furnace running.
Who does she think she is?

I can't imagine being that cold.

Why do you think I knit so much? And stash so much wool? It's all insulation! I think it's my little way of preparing for the -35C weather to come, this way 15C feels balmy! *g*

Brrrrrrr! My teeth would be chattering so loud. I'm a big sissy-I would have had that furnace on the moment I felt a chill (lol). Okay, it's well after Halloween so I think you can turn it on now. I thought huskies were made for the cold weather? Isn't that why they have those coats? No? LoL-your dogs are big sissy's like me!

I just. Can't. Do it. It's still not stupidly cold in here. It's funny, usually I like temps above 24C, but this year 16 is great!

Oh and Sasha is so not a typical husky - all she wants to do is come inside and snuggle up somewhere. Chet will be romping around like an idiot all day, and she's at the door going, 'treats, the treats are this way'
