When I woke up today the thermometer said it was 48F outside, while inside it was not much warmer at 58F so I turned on the gas fireplace to warm up the living room and kitchen areas.
My cats were huddled next to each other on the sofa sleeping away when I woke up this morning.
I think they appreciate a little warmth in the morning with my climate control system too. Nobody likes to be cold all of the time. This bubble man from last night, who is homeless, told me he sleeps in this little sleeping back in the hills. Without any heating device he must have been so cold this morning sleeping on that cold hard ground. I wish I could help him but I am barely scraping by myself trying to rent this flat by myself. The heating and cooling bills have been pushing me in a corner trying to pay them, but I am going to have a cool HVAC tech roommate soon and things will be sunny again. It’s just that my landlord said no subletting my 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 think having someone in the HVAC industry, who is also a good 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 me stay here.
