Have you ever gotten actually freezing & just were unable to find a way to get warm? This used to happen to me from time to time, & often I would resort to taking a warm shower & wrapping up in a immense fluffy robe & slippers. This would often do the trick, but when I was enjoy that, I would also guess the need to turn on the heater; Generally, I enjoy not to use the furnace because it is a forced air furnace & the dry air is no fun at all. The furnace often causes our skin to get dry & itchy, & occasionally our lips get chapped & our sinuses ache, but doctors will tell you that you should not drink alcohol to get warm, but I do find that a nice glass of wine can occasionally serve as a sort of personal heating system if you are quite chilled. It has been quite a while since I have been plagued with that freezing nature, especially since I am now a woman of a particular age, but nowadays if I do ever guess uncomfortably cold, I guess no qualms about putting on the furnace for a little while & maybe reaching for a glass of wine or brandy. In the summer season, I am typically hot, & I use the air conditioning every single afternoon. Without it, I guess I would be 1 irritated person, but from time to time when I am freezing while the two of us were in the Winter months, I find a few minutes of the furnace & a nice glass of wine serve me just fine. I suggest it to you!
