Winter is the season in which people try to keep the house as warm as it was in the summer, when they complained about the heat. ~Author Unknown

Winter.  Cold days, colder nights.  Heck of a time to have the furnace go out on us, but on Sunday morning, that's just what happened.  Thankfully, our little Hearthstone kept the whole house warm till late Monday when the furnace guy came. 

Ahhhh, winter. . .
