I've finally arrived at the next step in the process of warming up the downstairs - just in time for Spring! Tomorrow afternoon the wood stove guy is coming by to give me an estimate and discuss the options for placement of a stove.

Later in the day the fencing guy is coming by to give me an estimate on a nice, safe enclosure for my poor beguiled Princess Daisy. The sights and sounds of the season have proven to be too much for her. She wants to race off after every squirrel and track every scent.

I watched with woe on Saturday as she disappeared into the woods. For a few heartstopping moments I wasn't sure that I'd see her again. She easily leaps over the blueberry bushes and brambles in the woodlands hereabouts. I am more earthbound, and my progress through the undergrowth was sluggish at best. I am happy to report she is safe and sound. The fence has become a priority.

It's pretty nice in NJ, but still kinda chilly in my family room! The wood stove guy was here already. Should be toasty down here next winter! I'm waiting on the fence guy right now. Gotta do the math before I decide for sure...

Oh I am late to this party.

Horray for the wood stove. Can't wait for next winter, some hot toddys and the fire blazing in the stove!

You and Whatshisname have an open invite - it goes without saying!
