And the house is still standing

I lit a fire in the fireplace.

I know, I know, especially you Minnesotans are going, big fat deal.

Well, it is a big fat deal if you have lived in a house for five years and never lit it on the ten or so cold days a year because both you and your spouse have a deep suspicion and fear of natural gas. If that is indeed the case, it is quite an achievement to say a prayer, stick the key thingy in, turn it, then take a deep breath as you stick the lighter under the fake logs and wait for the house to blow up.

It didn't blow up!


TA DA!

And, now the weather is back to a crisp 77 degrees and the a/c is back on.

That's Christmas time in the bayou city.
