We have been busy trying to get things ready for the coming winter. Aside from normal work around the property we FINALLY installed a little wood stove, apparently my birthday gift :-) It isn't completed yet and the glow within is actually a candle, but we are getting there. I made the hearth this weekend, still have to trim the back wall and install a mantel. Mick ran into a few 'glitches' while running the chimney, which will hopefully be overcome and finished this weekend. I feel much better to have back-up heating this winter, especially with the cost of oil.
Once we get projects completed regular postings & Schnauzer photos will resume...at least that's the plan.
