Heart Fires

My little red valentine heart already found its way into an Etsy Treasury called "Seeing Red" - I guess it is February, after all, isn't it?

I enjoy seeing the Treasury creations, but I don't think I've seen anything of mine on the Etsy front page in a long time.

This morning we had more excitement, remember I had a hot water heater problem that was fixed?

This morning the hard overnight winds blew out the pilot light in the furnace.
Sometime between midnight and 4:30 a.m.
You know, it can get really chilly in that length of time, with only cold air coming out as the furnace tries valiantly to warm the house without any heat coming out!

So my hubby had to climb in the attic where the furnace lives, this morning before I left for the commute to the regular 9-5, to re-light the pilot.

Oh, boy, that warm air coming out was a treat!
Hope all of you are safe and toasty warm, in spite of ice storms or blizzards, or whatever mother nature is handing out to you this week.
Keep those portable heaters nearby - you just never know ....

It is blistering cold here in the DFW area. I have been home from work Tuesday through Thursday, probably Friday too. The schools are closed and so is the place I work. Yeah, the folks up north will think we're sissies with this winter weather. Truth of the matter is, we are just not prepared for this kind of weather and we don't have the equipment nor the driving experience.

Now could you and your hubby just come over and get our frozen pipes thawed out! This winter weather that has come through is a bit on the rough side for those of us here who are just not accustomed to it at this latitude. Stay warm and toasty.
