Could not stand the furnace runnin'...
Lit the stove...
Now 70* and toasty...
Gotta remind myself how much better the coal stove is for heat...
Only 2* warmer on the thermo but such a better kind of heat...

Not cold enough to light the big stove yet, but, chilly enough to need some heat. Got the pellet stove going and it's being watched closely by the cats!!!
