Captains Log Day # 143: Furnace is still not on. Resolve is weakening.
I am currently typing reports wearing a tank top, t-shirt, sweatshirt and a fleece-lined jacket. Hood is on. Gloves are on. Heater is on. Last night I slept with four different layers of blankets.
Mittens the cat seems a little unfazed by our interior, arctic climate. Mittens has fur and has ancestors with words like “Siberian” (tiger) and “Snowy” (leopard) in their names. She is not believed to have an alien resistance to the cold . . yet.
Will need to turn on the furnace soon . . . not sure how much longer I can take this.
Tonight I am thankful for my trusty heater! I am thankful for layers! And I am thankful for the furnace, which will soon be fired up in my increasingly cold house!
