Day 50 - New Deck - Wood Stove

I love my wood stove!
It is so nice to be warm and cozy near the fire
and watch the rain fall outside.

We are finishing up the stew I made yesterday.
Food tastes better cooked on the wood stove in the iron dutch oven .

The Fall leaves are getting ready to drop.

The roof is not covered with leaves yet.
Pretty soon I'll be up there raking off the leaves.

It is too warm for Morgan next to the wood stove
so she camps out next to the slider.
The electric cord is waiting for the deck workmen to come back.

Morgan is going to the groomer tomorrow.
And I'm going to wash all her bedding while she is gone.
I think I'll wash the floor too.
I've been washing all my clothes today and I so appreciate
having the dryer working!

Clean dry clothes are great
but warm fluffy dry clothes are even better!
I'm so glad Tom put in new ducting for the drying.
Works great!

The pumpkins are keeping cool.
I think I should carve them up tomorrow!
It would be neat to make a Chicken-O-Lantern.
I'll give it a try.

The sun is supposed to come back out tomorrow.
I wonder if the workmen will come back to work on the deck?

That fire looks so cozy and inviting! I always loved wood heat when I was growing up.

It's been ages since I visited and I've loved catching up today. I miss having a wood stove.

I wish we had a wood burning stove... We have thought about it (for 20 years) but decided the house is too small, it would take up too much space when not in use... The cost of wood is too expensive. (not allowed to gather wood even from the forest behind us!) But in this season a wood stove is so inviting...
