Our heat pump has decided decided not to work. Thankfully we have the pellet stove to keep us warm while we wait for it to get fixed. We have been using both the heat pump and the pellet stove together. We tried just using the pellet stove and blowing the heat to the other parts of the house with the fan from the heat pump like the previous owners did but we didn't like it. The fan blowing constantly just made the other rooms cold. The problem is that the thermostat is in the same room as the pellet stove and that room gets so nice and toasty but the rest of the house is cold. Ken is probably going to move the thermostat down the hall.
I made some Pumpkin Bread this morning. The recipe makes three loaves. I like to use smaller loaf pans and make 6 little loaves.
Only discussed the book with one other person because just two of us showed up tonight. Susan thought it was slow going but liked it more than I did. I wrote a quote down that I liked from the book and she wrote down the exact same quote!!
"Only by being present can you be happy. Too much attention to the past and the future, takes the now away. And once it's gone, you never get it back."
Even though it was just the two of us it was a nice time. I had brought one of the little pumpkin breads to share with everyone so we ate bread, talked about the book, and then just talked. Susan also showed me this neat web site and we played around with that too. You type in an authors name and a bunch of other authors who are similar pop up. Here's the LINK if you want to see it.
I walked to the book club and when I left I went to the post office and dropped a couple of letters in the mail box. Then walked around town for a little bit before going home. I least I got a little walk in today. : )
I thought the church steeple looked nice lit up so snapped a picture of it.
Have a great evening.
