I walked outside this morning and I just about shivered.
The air felt like fall and even the leaves had a tinge of red to them.
I was standing there wondering what happened to summer time when our hubby came out and handed me a cup of coffee. He told me I had left the door open and the heat was heading outside. I didn’t even realize the furnace had turned on. I thought it was moderate in the condo because it was moderate outside. I shivered a bit as I walked into the condo and I stood there for a moment. He asked me what I was thinking about and I told he couldn’t laugh. I told him it felt like Christmas is right around the corner. He laughed even though I told him not to. He told me Christmas was still almost more than two months away. I knew that meant I had a lot to do. The two of us still needed to get the chimney cleaned so we could use the fireplace. I didn’t believe he had the furnace diagnosed yet and it was already running. I made a list to call the chimney sweep and the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C supplier. I asked if there was anything else I needed to do before we needed to have the furnace running all the time. He laughed and told me to let summer time end before I worried about winter. It felt like it was already fall outside. The cold believe of the forty degree air was enough to get me into Wintertide mode already. As much as I’m not ready for it, I still have to consider what needs to be done before Wintertide rears its ugly head
