Happy Dance

Hello my friends, how is your week going so far? I almost wanted to say, "Happy hump day" but couldn't get that camel commercial out of my mind, ha!

 I am so excited about a new arrival to City House. We have been wanting a fireplace insert for quite some time now and have finally made a choice and will be having it installed tomorrow.

Here it is, Pacific Energy 'Super'

It will be filling this 'black hole'... We will decide on what kind of a surround we will have at a later time.


Our wood pile is growing and I have been picking up this Executive kindling at a local cabinet factory for $2.50 a box.  They are full of all sorts of wood scraps from the shop and make excellent coals and work well in wood stoves.


Here is a group for you...Three little girls having their first sleepover at grandma's house.  Juliet, in the middle, was ready for the reading time to end..not so much for Eden and Ella though.   I so enjoyed having them over, such little sweethearts.

I must be off to do my 'Cinderella' duties and scrub down the bricks on the fireplace before the install tomorrow...wish me luck.   xo

I love the bedroom your girls get to sleep in! Such beautiful girls!

Glad your fireplace gets in before this weather gets any worse!

Hi Sherri,

I have your name in Stephanie's mug exchange and wanted to let you know I mailed your package this morning. Hopefully it will get to you in a week or so.

I'm off to look around your lovely blog. :o)

Having a fireplace is so great for cooler weather! Just something special about the ambiance it creates.

The girls are adorable!!


Sandra said...

Hahahah I always laugh at the camel commercial and my oldest pug barks at the TV everytime it comes on.

Love your fireplace insert, I think it's going to look wonderful :)

Hope you're having a wonderful day and have a great week!

Oh, Sherri, your granddaughters are so precious! I can hardly wait to have some someday, Lord willing. I'm so excited for you with your new insert...and that deal on the kindling! WOW! Wish we had something like that around here. We make our own...and also use pinecones as firestarters. Can't wait to see a picture when you get your stove in!
