Have you ever had a single of those afternoons where you just didn’t have any motivation for wanting to get job done? Usually it involves cleaning my house, or doing my dishes (UGH!). It is just such a dreary day, that it seems to sap the life out of me. It is warmer today than it has been for more than one weeks. This morning, the temperature was 27 degrees warmer than the high of yesterday. We are truly going to make it above freezing today. It should be a day to relax and know like getting something done. There is no snow or ice to handle with, however there isn’t any sunshine, either. I haven’t heard the furnace running nearly as much as I have over the last more than one weeks. That will actually save myself and others some money on my energy bills. My hubby is taking this time to disinfect 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. He told myself and others the dust was because I kept the temperature control too high. I told him it was dusty because of a lack of humidity. We 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 December thaw, however what do the weather forecasters know. I just call it muddy and miserable, and taxing to keep my lake house clean.
