Make an Elf of Yourself


This is a lot of fun! Do it and share with your friends!

We've been busy all day getting ready to install a new Monitor heating stove. To do this we have to put it on an outside wall without an eve overhang. Which means I had to change the whole frontroom around. A bookshelf is outside, our bed is covered with books and the plants are on the countertops in the kitchen. But! We are close to drilling the hole in the wall and hooking it up! Mr. FishTaxi has the barrel stand built and enough #1 diesel to start it up tonight. We have a 150 gallons of #2 diesel in a 300 gallon tank that we can't use with the new monitor. We'll keep that and the old drip stove hooked up in case of a power outage.

This is going to be so nice. After years of heating by wood, then many more years of the drip stove (which is hard to regulate), we will now have a thermostat!

Better go help!

I'll be interested in reading your reactions. I've avoided a Monitor so far, but I have a feeling it's in the cards for us. You be the guinea pig okay?

Okay, if I have to.

So far I love it!
