We’ve been having lots of fires in our wood-burning stove. They keep the cabin at a comfortable temperature during the day, and at night the propane furnace kicks in. It’s nice and toasty for these Autumn days! Andy is much better at starting fires than I am. He even had to teach me when we moved here because I haven’t had much experience with that in my life. He got me those Strike-A-Fire starter sticks that help, but I also spend time gathering sticks to use for kindling when he’s out of town.
Just so you know, these pictures make it look colder than it actually is. Believe it or not, it’s actually been in the 50’s most of the week. This happens to be a shady spot that doesn’t see much sun, so that’s why there’s still snow there. This area is near our rental cabin, and everyday Aries and I pass it on our walk. In fact, Aries had another adventure there on Monday. Andy had left for Elko for work, and he called me in the afternoon to tell me that Aries was loose because he got a text from someone up here who had found him.
Somehow, he had gotten loose from the trolley that Andy keeps him on (I must not have closed the latch securely). Aries took off and ended up at a cabin that we pass by daily. Luckily the owner is great with dogs, and she was able to put him on her deck until I walked over there to get him. We’re so glad that somebody actually caught him because he’s a runner and could get lost in these mountains. Of course these things always happen when Andy’s out of town. Every day is definitely an adventure up here!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
