OK, it is so windy and cccoooollllldd here that I had to start taking drastic measures to keep the warm in and the cold out! This is a very heavy winter blankie hanging over the door that leads to the porch from my kitchen. The wind was pushing so much air through it that when I hung it, it billowed out. Sooooo, there came the need to put something heavy on it at the bottom to keep the air from billowing under and out! Naturally I grabbed the closest thing I could find with weight to it....."Grammies good garden grown green beans". They did the trick and I found another use for farm canned produce besides eating!.....not near as good as eating them, but at least they are being kept nice and COLD and fresh!
As I write this though I am toasty warm sitting in front of my pellet stove.....great idea we had to put it in the Den....this room used to be freezing cold and our computer sits in the northeast corner so we always froze while using it. Now, with the stove right next to it we about sweat-to-death sometimes! Oh well, I am definitely NOT complaining right now!!! I just looked at the temp outside and it is ZERO!!! Which, with the wind, is probably about -20 or more!!!! Well I think I will go make me a cup of hot tea now.....ta ta for now.....

I was thanking the Lord for our corn stove yesterday (actually all winter) myself. Makes for such a warm spot in the midst of a cold winter... Enjoying your blog!
