On Friday we experienced our first snowfall of the year. It definitely seems too early because we haven’t had very much time to enjoy Autumn, but luckily it didn’t last long. We tried out the wood burning stove for the first time, and it keeps this little cabin toasty and warm. Andy’s been splitting firewood on the weekends to stockpile for Winter. He’s also been gathering all the raw pine cones that the squirrels keep throwing down onto our front patio for incense. We keep a kettle full of water on the stove to add humidity so it doesn’t get too dry (we’ve found this one works the best–Le Creuset 1.8 Quart Stainless Steel Tea Kettle). The raw pine cones make it smell heavenly!
This little rental cabin was built in 1978, and after 40 years the owner decided to install a furnace (lucky for us). They came and trenched for the gas line and propane tank last week. They’ll be spending the next three days installing the furnace, and at the end of the week, they’ll be delivering the propane tank. Obviously it couldn’t happen at a better time! We’ll mostly use the wood burning stove during the day, but it will be nice to have the furnace to use at night (especially on the weeks that Andy travels for work).
It’s so beautiful up here, and we’re definitely enjoying all the different seasons!
Until next time,
Have a great day!
