Have you ever had a single of those afternoons where you just didn’t have any motivation for wanting to get work done? Usually it involves cleaning my house, or doing my dishes (UGH!). It is just such a dreary afternoon, that it seems to sap the life out of me. It is warmer this week than it has been for several weeks. This afternoon, the temperature was 27 degrees warmer than the high of yesterday. The people I was with and I are entirely going to make it above chilly this week. It should be a afternoon to relax plus guess appreciate getting something done. There is no snow or ice to handle with, however there isn’t any sunshine, either. I haven’t heard the gas furnace running nearly as much as I have over the last several weeks. That will actually save me some currency on my energy costs. My partner is taking this time to scrub the baseboard heaters. There is a lot of dust built up inside them. I thought that baseboard heating was supposed to less dusty, however my lake house is full of dust. She told me the dust was because I kept the control unit too high. I told him it was dusty because of a lack of humidity. The people I was with and I have the humidifier running 24/7, however it doesn’t seem to be doing any good. The next several afternoons is supposed to be well above normal for this time of year. They call it a February thaw, however what do the weather forecasters know. I just call it muddy plus irritated, plus hard to keep my lake house clean.
