Give me, give me, give me,
Let me sniff this,
Better take it for safe keeping,
(Editor's note - sorry about the lighting, I wanted to capture the moment and didn't adjust the camera)
Phod: What is this?
Lee: Mind your own business
Phod: Let me see - give it to me!
Lee: IT IS MINE!
Phod: I want a turn!
a few minutes later -
Lee: Finally, mine!
A bit later:
All that playing, we better have a nap! I will sleep with you so Phod can't get you bunny!
Thank you for such a wonderful toy F and E! I love it and maybe someday I will share it!
PS A lot of people commented about cleaning our house yesterday. We currently employ a student to come every other week and clean it.
As for cost of heating it, it is hard to say because our heat is electric so our bills include all our power. We do our best to use the fireplace on the coldest days (when we are home) and we keep the house set at 18C/64 F. We spend about $450 C/$342 US on wood (and every year we have had a some left over) and our total electricity bill for the year is a bit over $3000 C/$2200 US. It is not that cheap but because of how the house is built (very well insulated) sadly it is not that much more than our little house in the city cost us.
It does echo.
The house was built by a mason, hence the wonderful stone work!
You are all welcome to come and visit:)
