Wood Burner    We only heat our home with a wood burning stove. I love the independence it affords and the cheaper electric bills. It is a lot more physical work than just turning up the thermostat, but physical work provides exercise and satisfaction from a job well-done. This will be the fourth year of heating this way, and every year around this time we start to wonder how much longer we’ll be burning. I thought this would be a great place to keep record of that.

This has been a particularly harsh winter. We’ve gone through most of our firewood so this summer will be spent harvesting a new supply. Just this week it looks like the weather is going to finally warm up a little. Up until now we’ve only had a handful of days above 60 degrees so we’ve still been burning all day & night. It looks like most of this week we’ll be able to just burn for a short time each day to knock off the chill, but the sun and warm temperatures should warm the house during the day. Praise God!
