I am thinking of heading down to Tiny House Ontario for a few days to spend new years there. I plan to leave after our house guest Oliver is picked up. Oliver is a King Charles Cavalier spaniel whose family have gone on a trip this year for the holidays. He is an easy guy to have around because most of his time is spent snoring on the dog bed.
The truth is that I am not looking forward to the drive, but I want to see my niece, sister and brother in law over the holidays. Violet will only be little for a while, and right now, she changes so much week to week. It is hard to keep up from 350 km away and I don’t want to miss knowing her.
It will be pig cold at THO but I will set the propane and then go hang out with Violet. After a couple of hours it will be warm (but propane damp) in the house. Depending on the delivery of my wood stove it may be the last time I am there before we actually have a proper heating connected. What I mean is that it is the last time that I will ever really be roughing it in terms of heat. I can’t say that I am unhappy to leave behind winter glamping. Honestly, for me, there is nothing, and I mean nothing glamourous about being cold!
I really wish I had the wood stove already – I can’t believe it took me so long to settle on the right one. I think if it was there I would have spent the whole of Christmas there. I am even looking forward to getting my chainsaw going and ripping up the firewood for next year.
What do you think? Does a weekend here look appealing, or just shockingly cold?
