C: electric fireplace looks nice. Does not give any more heat than a $25 electric heater which can be used as needed and stuck out of the way when not in use. But, an electric heater adds ambience. You might end up watching the fire instead of reading!

Finally finished unloading a box that was too heavy to bring in loaded. Now I have some pretties to re-home and a banana box full of foamy and bubble wrap to... under the DR table for now. There is almost NO first floor storage. The beds in spare rooms are too low to store a banana box but will do for the under bed plastic bin. I am loathe to carry anything down the steep cellar stairs AND, worst of all, no sign of the mask I need to brave the cellar. The website for replacements - nothing available until mid December! I have worn it in late summer, early fall! Neither pockets nor tote bags have one hiding... Maybe at Beaver when I get back there.

Wood stove is doing a good job. Cosy in Den. Makes me want to sit here, on computer, but I get up and do a few things elsewhere and come back to warmth. Oops! Those ARE snowflakes I see!
