Whew! I thought it was just me! ;)
We bought a pellet stove this winter. It has a thermostat we can set. It is wonderful. We can't use a wood stove anymore because it irritates my son's asthma. We've had great results with the pellet stove. There is nothing better than wood heat. I plan to stay parked in front of it for the entire winter!
I bet you are having one of them thar personal summers.About the pea soup, I love a good pea soup and would you could you share you secret? And I loves me some pancakes. YummyNow having said that, I'm not so sure about the togetherness of them :-)
Hi Paige, they do go well together, just think Swedish pancakes. Not the big stack with maple syrup on them. The recipe for the soup is back a post or so in the picture that says Andersons Pea Soup, click it and you will see the recipe we use.
I heard pellet stoves are easier to control.
Mine can be this hot in the living room and about 40 in the far corner of the kitchen, which is basically all part of the same big room. :)
Hi Marci, I guess thats the part of homestead life that is a bit less glamourous : ) But I still love my wood heat
We have wood heat and just love it. We use a adapted barrel down cellar-it cuts down on the dirt and ash upstairs. We have a big register that came out of a country store. It heats our little ranch house just fine. When it get too warm (HOT!!)we throw a rug over the register. Hope you're feeling better.
Patty, I wanted to say how beautiful your new header with your dining room looks. And how I hope you are getting better!
