I used to think that the worst thing about winter was that it would dark so quickly. Somehow, I end up getting my timing all off skelter. During the summer, my husband doesn’t get his dinner until about eight in the evening. I just lose all track of time. In the winter, I tend to start feeding him around five in the afternoon. It just seems to be right. I can’t even work properly when it gets dark so early. I feel like I have just started working, and I should be quitting. Now that I am older, it isn’t just that it is getting dark so much earlier, but I can’t stand the cold. I love the changing season and I always welcome winter, but it doesn’t matter where I set the thermostat, I just can’t seem to get warm. I have a space heater in my office, so I can always have it warmer than the rest of the house. I wonder if it isn’t just because I am so sedate when I am working. I’m not able to keep my blood circulating fast enough to create heat for myself. My husband can’t understand why I am cold all the time, but then I put my hands on his face. I love the space heater he bought me. It is a small oil filled heater that works on electric and it keeps me warm and cozy when I am working. He told me that if I was a good girl, he would buy me a ductless mini split for my office, Christmas. I would have heating and air conditioning with a ductless mini split. I would also have my own remote. In the winter, I wouldn’t even have to get up to adjust the thermostat.
