Here in Germany, Thanksgiving is of course not celebrated and is just a regular workday, so my family and I do the big feast on Saturday. Right now the bird is in the oven. Fantastic 🙂
This year is a rather special one because the woodstove we ordered way back in April finally arrived this morning (there’s a huge order backlog due to the crazy heating fuel costs here).
No we are really enjoying a holiday ambience. What a warmth these things emit. Reminds me of my New England childhood winters.
Not only are we well-supplied with firewood for the winter (thanks to Metal Harry), but also with other essentials as well (thanks to Scotland, among others).
All in all, this skeptic is living pretty much carbon neutral. We’ve got 12 KW of solar capacity installed on the roof, rarely ever fly anymore, have a vegetable and berry garden that produces from June to October and now we’re heating with renewable wood. Hey alarmists, anytime you want to compare carbon footprints… But I confess, I’m a big meat eater.
Enjoy the weekend, everyone!
