Winter finally arrived. It's been so warm that we hadn't even given a thought to the wood stove since last winter so it needed a good cleaning out before we could use it again.
All fall it served as a rather large candle holder. The wood pile is covered in spider webs. I should mention the stove is in the man cave and his idea of clean and my idea of clean are two different things.
My job is to stand in the cold and watch the bucket so I can tell when the brush hits the bottom of the chimney. Good times.
Pup was helping out. She was also modeling her new tee shirt from Pet Smart. All the Martha Stewart outerwear was on sale. She now has four new cold weather outfits that I paid only $1.97 each for. They are all boy clothes though. The girlie outfits go quick. She doesn't care.
The wood stove cleaning turned out to be an ordeal because we ended up having to replace all the pipes. The new pipes sure smell bad but it's nice to be warm. Now if only we had a little snow.....
