A victory...and a defeat
Not only is our beautiful new wood stove installed, we actually fired it up tonight. Apparently, it needs to "cure" since it's brand new, so we had to bring it up to 200 degrees and keep it there for an hour. It was a glorious hour, full of warmth and a clear view of the fire. What a difference a new stove makes!
The discouraging part of the week is a problem with our well--as in, we've had no running water since Saturday. Or as my coworker says, the only running water is running to the store to get it (that joke may give you some idea of the depths we've sunk to this week). Anyway, we hope to figure it out soon...but if you're planning on visiting us, you may want to check on the water situation first.
But more good news--my very first original drink recipes are over at the Marx Foods blog this week! So please go visit, say hi, and mix up those drinks!
