What To Put The Thermostat On

It's 55 degrees outside no heat on in the house My feet in blanket I do hide the gauge I need to browse At times we turn the heater on then quickly turn it off My husband likes it to be warm I just sit and cough Though cigarettes doth hinder this I don't dismiss To cease the falling cinder can leave heat where it is Back to the dilemma of my feet again Blame this on global warming Tobaccos favorite sin Which goes back to my question in the title of this piece What to put the thermostat on This madness has to cease

It is madness; I live in Kansas. Last week we had a 40 degree drop overnight!

74 seems like a good temperature. We may have to work something out. :)

- "Tobacco favorite sin" ... there is no place that is legal to smoke in Norway ... not even in their own home (but no control) - But, enjoying alcohol is ok ... abusing his wife a taboo .. .. let the kids see all this madness is completely normal .... I get hot just thinking about it ... turn off the heat, Angela :) - hugs // Anne-Lise :)

- The shops sell the cigarette (it's legal) - But they are behind locked cabinets that no one can see through - All have the same color ... almost black ... 20 cigarettes: about 15 dollars

I didn't know that cigarettes were illegal anywhere. Wow. Interesting. Thank you, Anne-Lise for reading and commenting. :)

Yes! It is getting to be that time of year again. It seems where I live in southern Ontario, Canada we go from air conditioning...straight to a heater. I am sure you will find the solution.

You have to find a middle solution. Pity it seems the heater has no regulator? I prefer to keep warm. ~~
