I have always been a lover of nature.
I look around me and see so many people who spend as much time indoors as physically possible.
I could never understand that lifestyle, but that is the way I have been since I was a little kid. I grew up in an area that was ripe for exploring and the weather was often warm and sunny. This developed a sense of adventure in me and a love of fresh air and sunshine. Maybe this has something to do with how moderate I am with my thermostat. I was pondering on this idea, lately. My wife almost always wants to set a higher or lower temperature on the thermostat than I set. Even before we moved in together, the guests that I would have in my house would also express a desire for me to turn up the air conditioning or the heating. My wife in particular, lived in the city for most of her life. It’s easy to see why she prefers a more climate-controlled environment, seeing as how she spent most of her time indoors, unlike me. I guess I can sympathize with that. I guess I am more acclimated to dealing with the natural temperatures and how they fluctuate throughout the year. Still, there are days that are so dreadfully hot that me and my wife can both agree that we need to really crank that A/C up! There are winter days where it is so freezing that I agree on a high thermostat temperature too. I still value climate control!
