Normally, I can deal with the cold, but for some reason, these past two days I have been FROZEN, and nothing aside form sitting in my rocking chair wrapped in a quilt, holding a hot cup of tea, and practically sitting on top of the wood stove has even helped. I did realize yesterday, that three storm windows were still down, and one window was open, but they were quickly taken care of. I thought that would help, but today feels the same way.
Not wanting to continue to feel like a momsicle, I decided to put up sheets in the two doorways between the kitchen and the living room since we don't use that very much, trying to keep the heat focused on the rest of the house that we do use, especially the kitchen. While I was putting up the sheets, I remembered back when we were growing up and my parents did the same thing,. I have done this during the summer as well, to help with the air conditioning. Hey, you do what you have to do, right?
After putting up the sheets and closing off the back storage room, I have begun to feel a big difference already. I did, however, figure out how to feel warmer really quick........I went outside to feed the chickens without my coat. I was out for only about 5 minutes, but when I came back inside......WARMTH! I'll have to do the same thing during the summer to get cooler! lol
I pray those of you that live in areas were the temperatures have plummeted, are able to stay nice and toasty warm.
Have a great day!
