Air conditioning in the church
Once in a while we go to a little town in the mountains in the southern part of the country. My favorite thing about this place is how the whole town smells like fresh air, wood smoke, caramel apples, and funnel cakes. I love it there. You can rent awesome little cabins up in the hills and even though the cabins are furnished and outfitted with state of the art HVAC systems, we always prefer to use the fireplaces and wood stoves for heating instead of the furnace systems that they provide. It just gives the place a more rustic feel and it makes it seem like we’re really “roughing it” out in the woods instead of in a fancy cabin a mile from town. Last time we visited, it was in the middle of winter and it was super cold. There was even a little bit of snow on the ground. We loved chopping firewood and bringing it inside to burn in the wood burning stove and in the fireplace. A couple of times I was tempted to go over to the digital thermostat to just click the on button and raise the temperature in the house a few degrees, but my husband was adamant that he wanted to be a mountain man. He wanted to keep his woman warm with nothing but an axe and some firewood. I laughed and told him that was fine, but if the weather got any colder, his woman was going to be turning on the oil furnace and sitting by the heating vents.
