Keeping Warm In The Winter

The season of cooler weather is here again.  For people who are not used to cold weather like me, I bet your closet is piled with sweaters and jackets too.  My house has to be a little warm in the evening because I shiver when the fan is turned on.  I don't mind the coolness during the day.  And because winter is coming very soon, my husband checks the fireplace every time.  We have the wood ready.

He keeps the fireplace clean.  Sometimes the problem is the dirty chimney.  I think there are birds nesting up there.  I hear them chirping and seems like they are inside the chimney.  It is not good if they keep coming back to nest up there.  Piled dirt and other particles can block the smoke from the fireplace.  It is dangerous and health hazard.  

We only use the fireplace in the winter.  When it is snowing and it is very cold outside, we love to hang out at the fireplace.  We have to watch our curious daughter not to go near it.  Smoke and other residue can build up overtime in the chimney.  But we do not worry about it too much.  Cleaning the chimney needs professional help. Finding a chimney repair toronto and cleaning service is an ideal choice for us.

I think the world is much changed about temperature. Until 10 years ago, in October since we suffered heat that preceded the summer. There isn't more straight days of intense heat.

i wish we have a fireplace to keep us warm and cozy during the winter. Good thing that if you own a fireplace there's actually a chimney repair service you can contact just in case of it being broken.

I am lying in front of the fireplace right now Sis :-) I can feel the heat from our wooded burning stove :-) It feels warm and cozy especially that it is mid 3's outside and has a light snow :-) Nothing beats the warmth of the fireplace :-)

I always wanted to have a fireplace but oh well, we live in an apartment where fireplace isn't built :D It's nice to have one though, it looks romantic to me.

I'll probably never experience having a chimney unless by some twist of fate I find myself living in a country with winter season.
