I'm comfortable around 70 degrees. I turn my furnace back at night though. In my jammies and under the blankets, usually with one cat and a dog or two, anything warmer than say, 62, is too hot! As you know, I live in a mobile home...toaster oven in summer, ice box in winter. The furnace is toward the back of the house, in between the bedrooms, so they get really hot. The living room and kitchen are usually colder. If it's really bad out, I have a plug in oil filled radiator for the kitchen so the pipes don't freeze!
It is gorgeous out today! Warm in the sun, cooler in the shade, but just a 'hoodie' kind of day. My daughter reminded me that I had spring flowering bulbs to plant, so I took an hour outside and did just that. Finally found 'snow drops'! More chiondoxia and pushkinia. Some small iris, some white daffodils and some peach double daffodils, too! Last, but not least, a variety of hyacinths.
There is new growth on some of my amaryllis. I've set aside some orange tulips and yellow daffodils to try forcing again inside.
Hope everyone has a peaceful day.
