I was out of the house yesterday from 2-8, visiting with a couple of students. It was so wonderful to be out and about in the village all day, and it was a new experience walking through a lot of snow in the street that hadn’t been shoveled.
When I got home, I was expecting my room to be nice and toasty like it usually is because NMG is so good at keeping me warm. But it wasn’t. I mean, it wasn’t cold (until I went to sleep), but it definitely wasn’t super warm. I found out this morning that she fell asleep at 7 (hard day of preparing for Hram!), so that is why she didn’t make the fire. Thankfully I have a sleeping bag and super awesomly warm blankets so I fell asleep and stayed nice and warm all night. It was actually quite perfect.
So now she has a fire going in the soba, and I think I’ve figured out that it actually gets colder when the fire is going before it gets warm. I’m not sure why this is- anyone want to explain it?
