We bought a cast iron tea kettle for on top of the wood stove to help bring some humidity into the house this Winter. I knew it being made of cast iron it would be heavy, but didn't realize just how heavy! I oiled and seasoned it in the oven before it was filled with water and set on the stove. Hopefully, it will add a significant amount of moisture in the air…….
The end of the great room was a bit dark at night, too, so Don bought some small lights and installed them on the window to bring a bit of light during these early darkness hours. Our parakeet, Sam, really enjoyed them and stayed outside her cage much later than her "normal" time. Evidently the 50 lights and their reflections were like early morning stars to her?
