Thank gawd about 4:50 today the heat was turned on. At one point today there was only 1 degree difference between the outside temperature and the inside temperature. And that was in the office which probably had a little overflow from the living room space heaters I had on.
I'll spare you all the drama (for me) during the last 4 days but when the fire alarms went off shortly after the serviceman turned on the heat I was about ready to leave the house for fear of an explosion. Ben was let outside but he stood looking at me as I'm sure he was concerned for my safety. The HVAC guy told me there was no problem, that the brand new furnace was burning off the oil that was on the equipment at 'fire up'. Thankfully that dreadful sound stopped but in no record time as far as my ears were concerned.
Right now at 6:05 p.m. the inside temperature is 60 degrees and I feel like I'm in Florida. Guess after 4 days of the big chill my body 'sorta' began to adjust to the new (temporary) norm. Must say it will be great to wash my hair tomorrow as it has not been washed since last Friday ~ that night in the wee hours of the morning is when the heat stopped. No way I wanted to have a wet head of hair with bone chilling temperatures in the house.
So $2,595 less savings now I'm ready to 'chill' emotionally and get back to my wool. Just think of all the wool I could have bought with that money. Anyway..........
The Cherries and Candy Stripe antique adaptation is almost completely bound and after another steaming tomorrow will be on my harvest table.
This is the back side and as you can see there is only a bit more to stitch down on the binding.
And think I'll take a night off from hooking anything new tonight, as I'm too emotionally spent after these last 4 days.
Have a great evening everyone and hope you manage to stay warm.
