I'm moving around a bit more..and able to sit more now.
I've been playing with some yarn.
I made a small pair of socks for a special little one.
They should keep her feet nice and warm.
Then I started this new project...
socks for the kitchen table chairs.
My son laughed when I told him to put on the first ones...
he said," socks for everything".
I have thought of doing this before.
Now just seemed to be the right time for them.
Do you have things like that in life?
Where things just don't happen until much later
then you would think they should?
It's been super cold here in the Yukon and as we've been waiting
for it to warm up...the creosote has been building up
in our chimney as we didn't want the stove to go out.
If finally warmed up to -20C and it was so nice!!!
We let the fire go out...and my sweet oldest daughter
got up on the roof in my stead and swept that chimney nice and clean!
Then my younger daughter helped me clear out all the soot and ashes from the stove.
Lastly my youngest son came to join in the fun of scrubbing the outside of the stove.
It would take a whole lot more scrubbing with heavier steel wool
to get all the discolouration off the stove top...but that will be for another day.
For now it's clean enough to be put back into regular use.
I love it when you can run your hand over the warm stove...
as the fire is just getting going. Smooth and warm.
SO thankful for this stove to heat our home and cook our food.
OH, if you look at the picture below and get nervous about the paper
so close to the stove...don't be.
There is a cold air intake under and beside the bin of kindling and paper.
It's got frost on it and is letting super frigid air into the house.
I don't let it stay all the way open...but we need the fresh air for the stove to run well....
and for us to continue to breath healthy to.
Praying you are enjoying the winter.
Staying warm and keeping your fingers busy.
Love and Prayers,
