it was awfully nice of our furnace to wait until AFTER the holiday to BLOW up on us. (sigh)
only a whopping 3 days, but much nicer than the thought of NO heat before or during the holiday where we hosted 14 people for dinner.
(the furnace is much kinder than the old stove. some may recall it kicked the bucket two days before Turkey Day years ago)
looking at the warmer side of things, CHEERS to our first fire of the season. my checkbook and i will be welcoming the furnace repair man with open arms later today. and only then will i take my mittens off...
