When our spouse gets home, it may be really tepid in here
I have never been alone in our lake house before, as well as suddenly I am finding all kinds of little drafts. It is funny how much colder a lake house feels when you are alone. There isn’t anyone to take your attention away from the cold, or the unusual little noises that are in a house. I suppose our spouse will only be gone for a couple afternoons, but I’m not liking it already. I go away for a couple weeks, every summer. He always says how quiet it is as well as how much he enjoys it. He has the cooling system to block out the sounds in the house. It is Wintertide right now, as well as I don’t have the drone of the cooling system. I have the sound of the heating, but it is not really loud. All of us have a boiler as well as only occasionally do we hear the heating coming through the water pipes. I’m sure I’ll hear it more now that our spouse isn’t here. I’m hoping I do hear the heating turn on. It will be comforting to hear something other than nothing. I don’t love the way it is so quiet here. I don’t love being alone. I hope this doesn’t happen too often. I may be turning up the temperature control just to make the gas furnace turn on for the noise. When our spouse gets home, it may be really tepid in here. I’ll have to tell him he can’t go away without me, ever again. With our luck, I’ll run out of oil as well as the boiler won’t work for long. I won’t be able to turn up the temperature control because without the oil, the gas furnace won’t work.
