Late this afternoon I suddenly came to realize that the house had steadily been getting colder and colder. Sure enough, I went over and felt a heater vent and there was cold air coming out. Bummmer! I started a fire in the fireplace and almost immediately the pooch came over and begged to get up on the hearth so I put his bed up there. He knows how to keep warm! It is down to 62 degrees in the house…I wonder who will be going to bed early tonight?
