Today the fireplace man came and swept our chimney so that we can safely start burning fires in our wood stove — beginning tonight. There’s a chill in the air and I’m going to bed with the hot water bottle. The cat prefers the electric space heater for comfort.
The house is quiet this evening. Andy has gone to visit his number one son and to taste the homemade brew that said son has been making for the past month. I’m home with a little dog curled around my arm and two cats sleeping next to me on the sofa.
