Frugal heat

Oh it has been so cold here, but not as cold as up north. During the day it has been in the 30's and at night in the teens! For us here in the south, that's cold! I changed my header, after all it is January, but the "snow" pictures are from last winter.
Speaking of cold we have been using our fireplace like crazy since we are really, really low on gas. My daughters' tank needs to be fixed which requires for it to be almost empty, and I do mean empty, like five percent left. At the time our tank was not too bad, so we decided to wait and have everything filled at once. The good and the bad is the super, duper new unit we put in at her place last year has her tank lasting longer while our tank ate it up! So of course being new years weekend we discovered how low can you go!!! We are not out yet thank goodness! I am pretty frugal when it comes to all sorts of things including heat. Your cold? Put another sweater on! Throw another blanket on!
So, hubby has prepared us with plenty of firewood, camp stove, etc., just in case......., but for me Monday can't get here soon enough! The good thing though is for once I'm staying put in front of the fireplace, zoning out on tv movies, and being able to finally catch once again some good pirate movies! Not the Johnny Depp ones, although I must say I can watch those often, but the good oldies with Maureen O'Hara, ahhh now those were pirate movies!
