cff AIRING OUT THE HOUSE | Simple and Serene Living


Thursday, October 17, 2019

It was a very hot and dry summer. Too hot to open windows, but fall has actually arrived and with the cooler temperatures I am opening the windows today for a bit of airing out the apartment. 

Fall happens to be my worst allergy season, so I am never sure about opening up the windows and letting the mold in. It's a toss up as to whether I want to let some stale air out or whether it's more important to let some fresh air in.

This morning my thermostat kind of made the decision for me. The new thermostat was doing great with the a/c on but when it switched to heat overnight it seemed to go haywire and it was 80 degrees when I got up this morning. 

I immediately turned it off and opened the windows. I will probably pay for it with a sinus headache, but I decided that was better than roasting. 

Yesterday I met with my new primary care doctor. I really liked her, but she is semi retired and only works part time. I'll have to see how that works out, as the other doctor who was in the office with her recently left. She is part of a larger group here in Atlanta so I guess if she isn't available and I really need to get in I can go to one of the other offices, plus the medicare advantage plan I am on allows me to see any doctor. 

Finding new doctors when you move is definitely not fun.

When the cooler weather rolls in I find myself ready to get back into reading more. 

There is just something so soothing about curling up with a cup of tea and a good book on a cool, rainy fall day.

Have a wonderful day.


  1. That sounds like the perfect way to spend a cool fall day, Laura!

  2. What a wonderful poem! I've never read that before. My thermostat has done that before. Wouldn't go off and I was roasting. Oh, how I love traveling through time and places with a book.

  3. If you're ready to get back into reading, check out my post today! Hope this fall won't be a bad one for your allergies. I know how miserable that is!
