Winter is a-coming...

Because today we cleaned out the flue on the roof, got all of the old coals out of the wood heater and polished the door so we can see the warm orange flames.

Not to mention trekking outside in the cold and wet to bring in the wood that spiders call home, constantly dusting the mantlepiece and hoping each night that the fire stays alight for the morning!!

oh i hate those huntsman spiders that come in with the wood...so glad i dont have to do that anymore but i am with Collette...it is romantic and there is nothing like the heat that warms you to the core from standing in front of the fire warming your buns...LOL

Your weblog seems to be having some compatibilty problems in my firefox browser.
The wording appears to be running off the webpage pretty bad.

Hey outstanding website! Does running a blog
such as this require a lot of work? I've absolutely no knowledge of coding however I had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyways, should you have any ideas or tips for new blog owners please share. I know this is off topic however I simply wanted to ask. Cheers!

Amazing! I'm really enjoying the layout of your site. Are you using a customized theme or is this readily available to all users? If you do not want to say the name of it out in the public, please make sure to email me at: vetaseale@gmail.com. I'd really enjoy to get
my hands on this theme! Kudos.

Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I
found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

I am curious to find out what blog system you are using?
I'm having some small security issues with my latest site and I'd like to find something more safeguarded.
Do you have any solutions?

At this time it appears like Drupal is the best blogging platform available right now.
(from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.

When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks fine
but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
But think about if you added some great images or video
clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but
with images and videos, this site could certainly be one of the very best in its field.
Amazing blog!
