It has been an interesting 24 hours! Friday afternoon we learned that our furnace needed to be replaced; at first we were told we'd have to wait until Monday, but the heating people were able to be convinced to do it Saturday instead, at no inconsiderable cost to us, naturally. We spent the night Friday with dear friends (you know who you are, and we are so grateful!) and now, Saturday evening, we have a running furnace with its own new thermostat, pictured above. We are tired and discombobulated by the upset schedule, but so grateful for warmth and shelter and friends we can count on--those we stayed with and those whose gracious invitations we turned down.
