Re: everybody outside today?

I suppose those that are rained in are puttering inside.  It's a beautiful
day here, 60s for highs, 40s for lows, blue, shining skies.  This am I'm
trying to put my house back together.  We had our MG bulb and houseplant
sale saturday and it went pretty well.  Just a bunch of Snakeflower bulbs, a
dozen trout lilies, a few Rockgarden iris and maybe a tulip or 2 left over.
But the mess is all here at my house, in addition to the mess my house
developed into during the past week while I was readying.  Doing laundry,
dishwasher on, I finished the kitchen and living room - except to vacuum,
will get to that when all has been picked up.  Next I'll tackle the garage
where all the real mess is, where I put everything after dragging it back
from the bulb sale.

The house was 61 degrees this am when I got up.  Not bad (unless you're
Pam).  I'm going to try to hold out until November 1 to turn the heat on.
I've been hearing all sorts of horror stories of what to expect in gas
heating prices this winter.  It will never be as expensive as Marge's
situation, but I don't want to spend more on it than necessary.  The cats
are going to have to get used to "in or out" instead of keeping the gap
available in the patio door.  I do have an oil-filled space heater, but I
have no idea how to figure out the trade off between the 2 sources of heat.
In general I only used it if I'll be at the computer a long time and keep
the house temp at 60.
