Wow, it's in the 40's this morning. Started the wood stove for the first time this fall. Slept cold and too lazy to get up and get another blanket.
Friends, Barb and Ben are coming down this morning. Haven't seen them for a couple of years. They live outside of Philly. I worked with her back in the 80's. She was from England and they met when he was in the Air Force, stationed over there.
There was another lady hired into the department a few years later. We all had lunch a while back and she told us that the boss was concerned when he hired her. He wanted to make sure we three would all get along. Shit, we're still friends. I wish I knew where he was so he could know that. Sylvia is a cool lady also. She is married to a chinese fellow. He has several pattens, very smart man. Now works for a government, not sure which one. But, they travel all over. They were in Japan on March 11th when the big one hit. Thank goodness they were in the southern part of the country.
Cleaned house like a wild woman yesterday. Both stoves are sparkling. Need to get some wood in. I hope that guy coming on Wednesday can tell me good news about the propane heaters I'm thinking about getting. I'm not a big fan of propane, but, two of my friends in the city have both switched from oil to propane. It's getting to where I'm tired of waking up or coming home to a cold house. The old back is not getting better and I must be cautious as to what I do. I love burning wood and, hopefully, will continue to do so. Just use these heaters as a back up.
Well, must punch up the stove and get a shower......
There isn't anything more peacefull and that warms your heart along with warming your body, than a wood fire. Whether it be in the open or a closed stove.
You are so right, I love burning wood, especially if I got the glass clean on the stoves.
