It is sure lazy around here today. It has been busy week as sister-in-law in hospital so lots of visits. Husband getting ready for 8 weeks of radiation for cancer and still doing apples.
We heat with wood burning stove only. Our home was built in 1834 and has 11inch thick brick walls. We did not restore it or upgrade it. We bought it and 2 acres to raise 5 children in and we did. We last used the furnace in 1978. We heat totally with wood and it has been a lot of work but warm and toasty and saves us major money in fuel cost. We also bought adjoining lot and used it for 1 acre of garden, good food, lots of work and saved bundle of money and that came in handy at college time.
