On a lighter note, last night Jason decided to install our new woodstove ($200 on Craigslist!) that has been sitting in our garage. It looks SOOOO much better than the old clunker that was here when we bought the place! We were going through 4 cords of wood a winter because it was so old. This one shuts down tight and should save us lots of money by not having to turn on the gas furnace. The girls are actually offering to bring wood into the house! Here's the view from the back porch. I just love the colorful leaves.
