Fall is in the air ....

Yesterday I had a programmable thermostat installed in the house. It is suppose to save me money if I use it correctly. So far this season I have not turned on the heat ... this morning it was 58 degrees when I woke up ... a little chilly but no need to turn on the furnace yet! I see it is up to 60 degrees now! Comfortable if you are moving around doing chores.

But it did put me in the mood to fix a pot of chili! I had to modify my recipe a tad since I lost all my frozen tomato sauce when we lost our electric for five days. I hated throwing it all out but it couldn't be avoided. Most of the city was without electric ... and I had no way to keep things frozen. Today I will see what I can do with store bought tomato's! It sure looks good and the smell is tempting me to try it!

58 is the same as freezing to me! My heater is set to come on at 60 overnight, but I jump back in bed after upping it to 72, if it's cold in the morning. Right now, it isn't cold. We are even contemplating going over to the pool in a bit.
