I forgot to write about something that happened over the weekend. Lars bought 2 pellet stoves! We currently heat with oil and want to get away from that as much as we can because it's expensive, and using the pellet stove will be like sticking it to the man. They are ingenious! They look like a wood stove, but instead of logs you load what looks like rabbit food in the top and it releases them inside where they burn and release the heat via a blower. You don't need a chimney for them, so they can be vented through the wall and only need about 2 inches of clearance from the wall. I grew up with wood heat. There's nothing like sitting in front of a wood stove and having a good snooze. The way this winter is going, the stoves will come just in time. I like being cozy inside. Now I'll have 22 channels and warmth! Hooray. I checked out the TV listing for the said channels and it looks like I will be able to indulge in re-runs of Magnum PI and catch up on America's Next Top Model. Sweet!
