This is another of those gifts I received that I would never have bought for myself and never even lusted after. In fact, I never knew it existed before my husband presented it to me one Christmas.
We’ve had our temperature gauge for a few years now. It is attached to our deck and monitors the outside temperature. It also tells time. And we have two units. One sits on the main level in the kitchen and also tells the indoor temperature, among other features.
My favorite one lives upstairs in our bathroom though. This one not only tells the indoor temperature and humidity levels, it shows you.
Disclaimer: Yes, those are icky brass fixtures on the bathtub. And yes, that is a dusky rose tile on the surround. Fortunately you can’t see the black and white diamond tile floors or other atrocities like the trickle of water that comes from my shower. I need a new bathroom, I know this. Just focus on the cool toy and pretend you don’t see the icky styled bathroom.
See how cute that little dude is wearing his pants, hat, and jacket? As it gets colder, he’ll add mittens and a scarf. As it gets warmer, he’ll lose the jacket, and eventually he’ll end up in just a little bathing suit wearing a big smile and some freckles. Granted, I won’t see this again for months and months. And months. And months.
And I might be making it up that he’s holding a beach ball when it’s 90 degrees, but the fact that I have a little dude telling me how cold it is outside with his outfits always makes me giggle. And there are definitely some mornings when I need that.
What’s your favorite little thing that gets you smiling for no good reason?
