Each year I try hard not to turn the furnace on until November. I know that once it's on, there's no turning back, so I hold out as long as I possibly can. Usually by the middle of October we're wearing stocking caps around the house, extra blankets are added to the bed, and by the last week, I usually cave and flip the switch.
But not this year. I think we're going to make. It's 58 degrees in the house, but we're on the home stretch now.
The one perk to keeping it colder is that the cats get extra snuggly. They've left their usual haunts and hide-outs, and now all of their napping hours are spent on or near us, or curled up together. I like how cuddly they are.
Hang on girls, in just five more days it will be November.
