It was just 10 degrees and very windy here in NW Wisconsin. Our house is insulated and we heat with wood, which I usually love. But today, I just couldn't get warm for anything. If I stood in front of the stove, my backside would get too hot while the fronts of my legs were freezing.
I blame it on 'cold wood.' This happens, occasionally, when we're burning wood that hasn't had the proper cure time. It just doesn't throw enough heat. You'd think, by looking at the coals in the stove (above) that it's pretty hot, but there's something about cold wood that just doesn't heat up the house like really dry wood would. (wood would, get it?)
So earlier, I was making a batch of soap and asked Kevin to smell the fragrance.
'Does it smell kinda musky to you?'
He inhaled deeply, then thought a minute, and said,
'No. It smells more...walleye.' (He really ought to take his show on the road! I wanted to insert Vaudeville end-of-skit music here, you know, where at the very end they squawk the old auto horn - but couldn't find it.)
ANYWAY, This is what I put up with...on a daily basis.
And of course I laughed. I always laugh. I sometimes think I shouldn't encourage him. ;-)
Hope you're staying warm - but not too warm. :-)
And yes, we laugh a lot around here! It helps us stay warm in the winter.
So do you escape the winter or dig out the polar fleece and brave the elements?
