Keeping Warm

I will try to type this post the best I can, but it isn't easy to peck out words while your teeth are chattering and wearing gloves on your hands. Yes, you read that correctly. . .I am wearing gloves because it is 46 degrees in my house! Well, it is 46 degrees and rising now that my husband has finally fixed the furnace. I was out most of the day yesterday and when I came home the house felt a bit chilly. I proceeded to put the groceries away first and afterwards checked the thermostat, which said that the batteries needed to be replaced. After obeying what the thermostat told me to do, I failed to hear the furnace go on. I finally had to break down and call my DH, who had just arrived at the Chicago Auto Show with his buddies. I asked if there was anything I could do or try, but alas, there was not. So I trekked through the deep snow out to the potting shed to fetch the space heater we have out there. After cranking that baby up to the highest setting, I bundled myself up in layers of clothing and braced myself for the cold air that was slowing filling the house. When my husband returned home, he discovered that a part (the glow switch?) was broken. However replacing it would have to wait until the morning since the stores were all closed for the night. More clothing layers were added to get us through the night. This morning I couldn't even feel my hands as I prepared my oatmeal and hot coffee. 20 hours of cold weather will do that. Fortunately today is a sunny day (a rare one here lately) and we have a lot of southern facing windows, so that helped to raise the temperature a tiny bit. The thermostat now reads 57degrees, so I guess I can take my gloves off and enjoy the heat wave.

I added this sweet little springtime tag to my etsy shop today. I'm glad I made it yesterday, while my fingers were still nimble.And this is the Mosaic Journal that I made over the weekend for Sweet Bella. What a fun project this was to put together. I hope teperatures are much warmer in your neck of the woods!
