When I woke up today the thermometer said it was 49F outside, while inside it was not much warmer at 58F, so I turned on the gas fireplace to warm up the dining room and home office areas.
My cats were huddled next to each other on the sofa sleeping away when I woke up this morning.
I suppose they like a little warmth in the morning with our climate control plan too, as nobody likes to be cold all of the time. This bubbleman from last evening, who is homeless, told me he sleeps in this little sleeping back in the hills. Without any heating component he must have been so cold this morning sleeping on that cold hard ground. I wish I could help him, although I am barely scraping by myself trying to rent this flat on my own. The heating and cooling bills have been pushing me in a corner trying to afford them, although I am going to have a heating and air conditioning tech roommate, so things will be sunny again. It’s just that our landlord said no subletting the rooms, but there is no way one person with my income could afford to live alone here, so I am going to have to go behind his back and get a roommate, whatever. I suppose having someone in the heating and air conditioning industry, who is also a great person and professional, is going to be my best option for someone to live with. I will meet with the landlord if he finds out and try to talk him into letting us both stay here.
