Was 33.3° this morning at 6 am. Once again, when Hiker came back inside from going potty, she went right back to bed and burrowed under the blankets, and once again, I joined her.
We were under a freeze warning. I turned on the furnace and pulled the blankets up to my chin and Hiker and I stayed in bed until 8 am watching TV.
After breakfast, Hiker and I got into the car and went to buy my lottery tickets, then we drove down to the building where the surgical center I’ll be going to in 2 weeks is located. I wanted to make sure where I’ll have to check in. On the way back home, we stopped at Sam’s Club and filled the car with gas.
After we got home, I went outside to check the tape I have wrapped around my main water pipes. Wanted to make sure they were covered well so they won’t freeze. Many years ago, when Ben and I first moved here, we had a really cold winter and our pipes froze, so after that we started wrapping them.
I also covered up my A/C unit out behind the house, and since Keith was here when we changed from daylight saving time to standard time, I had not changed my batteries in my smoke alarms and my CO alarms, so I did that also.After lunch, I took Hiker over to Central Park. It was a beautiful afternoon. In the high 70’s.
