Luckily I left a heater on, very low, for Shabbat. We just have a few electric radiators. The trick is to leave them on low all the time so the house doesn't get too cold. There's actually a thermostat in the radiator, so if it gets too warm the heating element is off.
I don't have decent boots. There has been so little rain; I've survived without the past few winters. I have tried to buy some, especially when I was in NY over a year ago to bring my father here. I had a couple of hours to shop and tried on so many boots and none were comfortable. How do people buy shoes online? I have to try them on, take a few steps.
I can't imagine buying clothes online either. I have to feel them. I like shopping. I like just walking through stores, even if I buy nothing at all. Catalogues just don't do it for me. I'm a very kinesthetic person. I'm listening to a Tanach (Bible) class on Matan as I type, but I can't "just listen" and concentrate. I can't watch a TV show or movie without doing something else. I wish I could stop the TV show mid-action to leave the room and then turn it back on like a DVD.
Too many paragraphs start with "I."
I guess I'm feeling stir-crazy since I couldn't take a walk this afternoon.
