I usually like the summer but this year, I think I am ready for winter.
We have had a very hot summer here.
For weeks on end, the temperatures have been way up in the 80s and 90s and I just really hate that. There’s just something about being overheated that makes me feel like garbage. I really love the fall and the winter, and I think that it’s because I would rather be cold than hot. When you’re too cold, it’s way easier to start heating up than it is to start cooling off when you’re too hot. I hate having to pay for expensive cooling bills in the summer and my air conditioning system is definitely not one of those fancy new high efficiency A/C units that you hear about sometimes. Mine is a really old clunky A/C unit that was in the house when I moved in. Who knows how long it had been installed in the house before I moved in? It was probably one of the oldest working air conditioners in the state. I should have gotten a medal for it or something. Anyway, this year, I was really ready to stop running that old A/C unit and paying for those really expensive cooling bills every month. So when the weather finally started cooling off, I was thrilled. I’m getting ready to switch the thermostat over from cooling to heating and I’m getting the wood burning fireplace cleaned out this weekend. I can’t wait for the falling leaves and bonfires. Bring on the fall!
