I really enjoy visiting my grandmother as often as I can. She lives about 25 minutes away. I moved further out to the edge of town after college, but Grandma still lives in the same home I’ve always known her to live in, in a small neighborhood near the downtown area. I tend to visit her a few times a month, and I really enjoy simply talking about life and how things are going and reminiscing and listening to her stories. One thing I have noticed lately, however, is that she prefers very warm temperatures more and more. I guess I didn’t really notice all that much when I was a kid, but as an adult, it seemed like Grandma always preferred quite a high temperature on the thermostat. These days it’s nearly unbearable, particularly because it’s the winter, and as a result, she cranks up the thermostat just about as high as it can go! I worry about her, because she has a gas furnace and I imagine her electric bills to be quite high. I insisted that she install carbon monoxide detectors, at least, in the event of a gas leak. I’m glad that she seems to have the funds to maintain her furnace, and it’s relatively new, because it was replaced just a few years ago, so I’m happy about that. It’s just that I can tell that her frail, old body just can’t seem to retain hardly any heat anymore! That’s why I love getting her all sorts of colorful and comfortable blankets as gifts, which she always appreciates.
