Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 9th day of September, 2014.

Dark out …. looks like night.

This is the time of year that most of us northerners find it hard to find the get up and go to get up and go.

Now that is a mouth full.

I am trying to be more of an early morning person.

Time to pull out the socks or at least for the next couple of days.

By the weekend it will be sandals again.

Last night it was cold in the house so I had to break down and turn on the furnace.

To my “horror” the furnace did not come on when I turned on the heat.

I tried the things that I knew.

I pulled out the furnace instructions.

Finally I went to my neighbour ….

We have the same furnace.

She came over and we checked out the thermostat …. all was correct.

Went to the furnace.

It was quiet …..

YIKES, not a good sign.

She decided we had better call her girlfriend’s guy who knows about these things …. heating ….

So we did.

Go figure that the pilot light had gone off perhaps due to being off for so long and then didn’t hook up when it did the circuit thing that it does …..

He suggested turning the on and off switch and VOILA the furnace came on.

The pilot light lit and we had heat.

You never heard such a sigh of relief and heart felt gratitude as from me.

Furnace fixes are not cheap.

So thanks to my neighbour’s friend we have heat.

YAY.

So on this Tuesday I am so grateful to have heat.

So grateful that it was as easy as the turning on of a switch.

I hope that you all have a great day.

Happy Tuesday.

Special Hello to: all those gals who live alone ….. make sure that you are “handy” or know people who have plumbing, heating and electrical skills …. professionals.

Always, Carol and Alvin
