The dog and I have discovered a new place to hang out in the house.
You see, now we have heat, and we even turn it on from time to time. In the living room there is a large section of new pretty tiles, under them, we discovered are some rather (distressingly) poorly insulated hot water pipes for the heating system. I am comforting myself with the thought that maybe they are insulated on the bottom, but they've done this on purpose to make us happy.
We have a strip of radiant heated floor in the house and it is LOVELY to sit on. Though the dog prefers to sleep there.
