It’s officially Spring (as of yesterday), so of course it’s snowing. Not a little…a lot! Yesterday we got a good 6 inches and this morning it’s snowing again. Fat flakes whipping around in the blowing north wind. Talk about cold! Brrr
It’s pretty to look at from the comfort of my home and the only time I venture out is to walk the dogs or to bring in more wood for the stove. Have I told you how much I love our wood stove? There’s nothing like the heat to break the chill. Even the central heat can’t compare. And once the stove gets to rockin’ and rollin’, the central unit seldom kicks on. Saving us $$. Yea! All we have to do is feed it. On a regular basis. That could be expensive, except we have some acreage and have a lot of trees that either need to come down, or lost limbs during the ice storm a couple years ago.
Meaning we have a ton of wood. Well, we did until this winter. Since we’ve had about 4 good snowfalls this year as well as the normal cold weather of winter, the supply is getting rather sparse. But we still have enough to get us through this (hopefully) last cold spell of the season.
Last Friday it was 70 degrees and believe it or not, will be 70 again in a couple of days. Go figure. But, that’s Mother Nature for you.
In the meantime, I’m hunkering down. Being stuck indoors does have its advantages. I can get my house cleaned, laundry done and more importantly, get some writing done. Always a favorite ‘chore’.
Where ever you are, I hope you have a great Sunday!
