Time for a Fire in the Woodstove

***UPDATE, Tuesday Morning: Furnace is working, for no apparent reason. I built a nice fire again today, and just as it got going really warmly, the furnace came on for the first time in over 24 hours. Hm. I think the service guy had better look at it anyway, as this is still a mystery.

Our furnace is not working today, for a reason known only to itself.

After checking the propane tank level, trying the circuit breaker and ground-fault indicator, replacing the batteries in the thermostat, calling Gregg (and a repair company), I built a fire in our woodstove, and am using it to keep warm. It's pretty and it's cozy, but I still want our furnace to work.

I'm thankful that:
**the furnace waited until Gregg was back from Spain to break down
**the temps are in the 40s and 50s right now
**we put a woodstove in this house when we built it
**the repair guy is coming tomorrow
**I know how to build a fire, and
**I enjoy doing it.

I hope you have a cozy Monday!

Aww... how neat! (it's 78 here and the A/C is running) I'm glad you're able to cozy up to a nice fire. :-)

Good things to be thankful for~ Enjoy that fire and read a good book with a nice glass of wine tonight! I love rainy Seattle days...

That is beautiful and yes, finding things to be thankful for is a great thing too. I hope it gets fixed in a timely and cost effective manner.....
Our a/c is still running too.
