For the first time in my life, since I was five, I have my own wood stove. This is something that I have wanted for so long and now that I have my own place, I have this luxury. Last weekend, I got a good deal ($160) on Craig’s list for a chord and a half of wood and so I think I am stocked up for the next few months.
My plan is to keep the heater turned all the way down until the end of the winter… or until I run out of wood. It does get a little chilly at night, but sleeping on the couch in my mummy bag next to the slowly dying fire tends to work out fine. There is nothing cozier than being home with a good book or some good friends and a fire going.
