Last night, I tried and tried to figure out why the heat was not working. Of course, we had been gone for 5 days, coming home to rainy and cold weather which did not help. At first, I didn't pay too much attention since I was busy unpacking and preparing for today. But as the kids' bedtime approached, the chill got a little more brittle.

He was still out of town and we were unable to figure it out via phone.

So now, you can just call me Laura Ingalls Wilder.

I layered L with blankets and tucked him into his bed. I did the same with A and then proceeded to snuggle with her last night in order to survive.

Or at least get warm.

We were gone all day today, so when I got home this afternoon, I sweetly asked a neighbor fella to help me discover our problem. Thankfully, it was just a breaker that I could not figure out last night.

So, we have defrosted a bit thanks to the heater working and a little sunshine today.

At least we saved a few bucks on our gas bill this month!

And personally, I sleep with covers all year long, so I enjoyed the extra bundle to snuggle under.

Now I think I am going to go milk a cow and make some butter.
