When we first moved here I loved the fireplace. I figured we would use it a couple times a year but it is nice to have.
We have found that Trixie and I are addicted. The mornings this winter are much colder. Queen Trixie and I are super sensitive to the cold. So we spend our mornings in front the the fire.
Trixie especially has made it her home base. It takes a lot to get her to move once she has settled in.
Who can blame her? Not me! BURRRRRRRRRR!!
