Heart Of The Home

March 18, 2013


The kitchen is known as the "heart of the home" and our home definitely follows that philosophy but I must say that our pellet stove could rival it for that title.

The pellet stove serves many purposes for each member of our little family.  It has warmed up sick chickens {Lucy Lou was sick once and had the look of "now when do I get to move into this room???" after discovering the warmth of the pellet stove}, dries wet boots, mittens and scarves, welcomes guests, keeps the house toasty, provides warmth and comfort to the cats and dogs, helps bread and rolls rise and provides the perfect spot on a cold morning to drink a hot cup of coffee while looking out on the property to plan the day ahead.

It runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from October through April and never once complains.  It only asks for a little daily maintenance and a nice big helping of pellets.

I’ve chosen to focus on one change per month so that it could not only become a more manageable goal, but I have a better chance at making these new habits...
