Why "Freeze Yer Buns" Isn't So Arduous

It was a sunny 85 degrees in Los Angeles yesterday. Ha ha! We may be a city full of gridlock and plastic surgery, but on the flip side, we occasionally get 80 degree days in December.

(I think that's actually our official motto. LA: it's not that cold.)

Anyway, after a week of freezing my buns off and wondering if I was going to make it through this challenge, it was so nice to come home to an apartment that wasn't icy cold but warm, warm, warm. In fact it was a little too warm. And then I thought, hey, I committed to turning off my heat, I didn't say anything about my A/C. I can run that thing all night long.

I'm kidding! I'm kidding! I didn't turn on my A/C. I didn't even crack a window. Instead I revelled in not being cold, made myself dinner, talked on the phone to a few friends, and went to bed in just a tee-shirt.

It was heaven.

Oh yeah, so far DeSloFooMo is going really well! I actually find myself *excited* to cook. Of course it's only been five days, so who knows if the novelty will wear off. But for now, I'm enjoying this challenge very much.

Arduous--EcoGeoFemme recommended your blog, so I thought I'd stop by and say hello. I have to say I'm intrigued by DeSloFooMo. I actually love to cook, but I get lazy when I'm busy.

Something that has worked for me is to cook several things over the weekend that I can eat throughout the week. As long as you don't mind not having something completely different everyday, it definitely beats getting home from work at 9pm and having to make dinner.

BTW, we got flurries today, so I'm crazy jealous of your 80 degree weather!

Mad Hatter, thanks for visiting! I actually happened upon your blog yesterday, and I really enjoyed it, especially the post about spousal support with housework.
