A winter bonus...
We can cook on the range. A few nights ago L cooked our dinner, in it's entirety, on the range.
The range is brilliant for many reasons.
Our wood is free, it's all over the farm and all it costs is a bit of sweat.
It not only heats our house but also our water.
We have several small radiators throughout the house that run off it. They only really take the chill off, but still good.
And it looks cool!
I remember when we were viewing the house, I saw the range and though "aw that's cute" I had no idea that we actually needed it. How naïve!
As an aside, I have just recently stopped biting my nails. I was an avid nail biter :) It's taken almost a month to get them even near the tops of my fingers. I'm actually quite proud of myself, and am most definitely going to try really hard not to bite them, but I've discovered something ~ how do you type with nails? They're very annoying!
