Freeze Yer Buns Challenge

The sweet and constantly go-go-going Ms. Crunchy has issued another challenge, and I have decided to participate. The last one was something I might be willing to try, but the fam would have fits.

So here it is.....

The Freeze Yer Buns challenge!

I have promised to keep my thermostat at 59 deg or lower from Nov 1st thru April 1st. I know this isn't much of a challenge for me, as I live in an apt building and get lots of heat from that, but I WILL be making an effort!

Joining is free, and Crunchy is great, so if anyone wants to head on over to sign up, they certainly can....

Have a good day!

Hi BG,
As a survivor of the 70's energy crisis when our thermostats were set to 68, I've been at 68 ever since, however, this year it's going down to 65 (and 60 at night). Being a knitter, I have lots of afghans and sweaters (although I may have to knit a couple sweaters for my short-haired dogs this year).
Can't do 59 though--you're a stronger person than I am!

Way to go! I can't believe how many people are already posting about this!

Oh, my golly! Crunchy actually came over and checked out my blog! That is like, royalty checking out your digs, or something.

I kind of think I am cheating a little, since we live in an apt building. We get so much heat just from our neighbors who keep thier thermostats cranked that I don't even know if we will have to turn ours on at all. We could probably be comfortable just with residual heat.
