Is it cold in here?

We have a wood stove. My best description for heating your house in the winter with a woodstove in the middle of it is: feast or famine. It's either 80 degrees, or REALLY REALLY COLD!!!!

That said, we repeatedly ask ourselves lately, "Are you cold? I'm cold! Is it cold in here?" It's not cold in our house, in fact quite the opposite. It's just that after Bill works outside, or after I've gone out for something, a chill sets in, here in the wilderness of Maine. Especially when every time I look at my thermometer it says somewhere around 14 degrees outside.

Well, apparently, it's not just the grown-ups. No, Zachary didn't ask me, with a shiver, if it was cold in here. But I suspect he might have been thinking it:

He posed nicely, huh?

He posed quite nicely, yes. And YES. It is cold in here!!!!! My woodstove needs some major wood. The other thing I've found is that when you are used to 85 to 90 degrees, even 75 FEELS cold. Although we wake up to 48 every morning downstairs. Thank goodness there is heat upstairs!

I know what you mean. We had a winter storm warning the other night. The temp. hit 32 degrees. Apparently that is cold here. I have to laugh when I see these things.
