The walls don’t drop bugs anymore since we covered the exposed stone but we really did nothing about the roof, the main source of the bedroom breezes. Roof tiles covered by bamboo are still roof tiles covered by bamboo which let in all the breezes. And of course, a vaulted ceiling is still a vaulted ceiling – a vault for rising heat.
To our credit, we did think a little about heat when we arranged the room. We thought it would be really smart of us to put the wood stove in the corner opposite and facing the bed. In theory this is a good thought.
But here is the reality
It was really optimistic thinking that the fire from that little stove of ours would pump the heat the 20 feet diagonally across the room to our bed without sneaking a rise up to the ceiling.
The good news is, is that since David has been gone I have been the mad-freakin’-hatter. Check these out!
And today’s addition to the Hatter’s collection….I’m calling it “Go Topless”
Yep, I've knit a hat that has no top. (perfect for that "fountain 'do" that I'm sporting today)
So, there you have it... I'm topless in the cold. Ain’t nothin’ better.
Ps. If any of you really were studying these pictures you might wonder why those chairs are on the couch in the wind/heat photo. The dog has taken to humping the cushins in with an energy I can't keep up with...this was my solution to keeping the couch from being repeated violated.
