10/28/13 Monday at Lenoir, NC (Green Mountain Park Resort-TT/MA)
Our new heater did fine keeping the bedroom around 60 degrees, but failed at heating up our living room area. John gave it 2 hours, but since it wasn’t all that warm at 8 am he started up the propane furnace. I slept in. As we got talking about the heater it became clear that it would have done better set at the stronger heating element. Sure enough, that worked well. Now we have a plan: keep our little heater for the bedroom at night and use the new larger ceramic one for the living room in the early morning, since it has a timer to automatically start.
I cleaned house and read in the morning. John changed a light, a different fluorescent style. After lunch we got groceries. When we returned, I read until I felt sleepy. It is such a delight to be able to settle into a nap when you feel sleepy. When I awoke, John was playing with his computer spreadsheets. I suggested we play the dice game “10,000.” So, after being ahead most of the game I hit 10,000. He had his turn to try to catch up and he got more points than I. Some people are so lucky!!
Yummy, easy supper of grilled sausages and pumpkin pie, then we played 3 more games. John won all but the last one. Finally, the luck swung my way once. Do you see why I don’t like gambling?
Our evening: “Dance With The Stars”, then bed. Early up tomorrow for our trip to The Biltmore.
