The combination of a fall chill in the air, and what seems to be my first cold of the season convinced me to get a couple fires going in the woodstove this week. Although it seems early to start burning, heat from the woodstove is lovely and comforting. I’ve already brought a couple weeks worth of wood upstairs and have more prepped in the deck boxes outside on the deck.
Although I like the fall, this year I’m not at all looking forward to winter. Having experienced a nasty accident slipping on ice on our stairs back in March, I’m a little nervous about slipping again.
