Well they're a little blurry, but these photos are featuring the best part of my night! Friends and family know how much I complain about how HOT our building always is. It seems that whenever the heat is on in the building, it's on at full blast. Try as I may, I can't control the heat coming out of 4 out of the 6 radiators in my apartment. And I've TRIED twisting the knobs. In both directions. Doesn't work.
Usually a fireplace (no matter how small or... fake) would be the last thing I'd want in this apartment. But the heat has been off for the past two chilly days and so the inaugural fireplace session was tonight. I'm in sweatpants and a sweatshirt with my hood on! But I am NOT complaining. I finally feel like the temperatures in my apartment are somewhat aligned with the calendar months.
I supppppppose I could take this opportunity to say thank you to Mr. S. for buying that fireplace on sale at BRICK for $50 marked down from $450. Because quite honestly, when he brought home an electric fireplace. In July. When we were saving up for apartment necessities like a kitchen table. It's tough to recall exactly what
explicatives words I used, but I'm 99% sure the words thank you were not among them. So take this as a belated merci, mon cheri.
