Brrrrr

I'm so tired.

All I wanna do is sleep.

What I wish most for in the world right now is for our boiler to work.

So we can have heat.

Marty and I just spent the last hour trying to build a fire in our fireplace.
We are NOT good at building fires, even with tons of newspaper.

First thing tomorrow we need to call a boiler repairman but I just know they probably won't be able to get us in at the last minute. So I'm thinking it will be at least a few days till the boiler is fixed.

Tomorrow is Marty's last day here before he goes back north for 3 weeks. One day for him to run this show before I have to take over.

Yikes.

*****************************************

The bright side...

We haven't had chopped wood ready to go ever, until today. Marty spent the afternoon cutting some tree's he fell earlier this summer. You know so we would finally be prepared "in case" we ever needed it. ha I'm thinking God may have nudged Marty with out him realizing because I didn't ask him to do it.

Despite the moist wood and the dummies who have no clue how to start a fire with out lots of gas or oil, we got the fire going in the ol blaze king. We didn't use any fuel or oil, only newspaper.

Thanking God right this moment for a secondary heat source (our fireplace).

Marty just found 2 space heaters from when our heater went out a few years ago in the 5th wheel

Marty was here when it happened, even if it is for just a day.

I have a case of hot cocoa that will go nicely with the cold outside and the fire going inside.

God will help me through this.
