After my last post about our snowfall,
we've had some crazy cold days and nights down in the single digits.
Thankfully the house stays warm and isn't drafty.
We're still waiting on the glass doors for the fireplace in the den
so we haven't been able to enjoy a fire inside yet.
But the outside fireplace is a real treat.
We needed warm weather to come back though so
that the staircase railings and bannisters
could get their final coat of stain.
The odor of this particular oil based stain,
which we got it through our cabinet maker since it isn't sold to regular folks,
is so horrendous
that we knew that we'd need to spend a night or two in the RV of the horse trailer again.
And we feared that we'd be frozen popsicles
if we tried to sleep out there when it was in the teens or lower!
The trailer has a heater,
but ZERO insulation..... and aluminum gets mighty cold!
Yes, we're trailer folk again
Attagirl, Noel, Joe and I .....
living out on the driveway,
but just for one more night.
It was that or sleep in our respirators!
