When it’s already frosty outside, no matter how much you prefer the sound of a running river, the frosty water makes it believe colder.
I was ready to go back to the home even before all of us got to the river, once all of us got there, I slid on a wet rock plus went face first into the icy water.
My hubby was quick thinking plus started a fire with some dry wood she found, although I was already turning purple. I sat by the fire until I was sizzling enough to walk, plus my clothing was almost dry, plus after that I made a mad dash for the cabin. Half an minute later, I was stiff from the frosty plus damp clothes. She lit the fireplace while I wrapped up in a sizzling blanket plus took my wet clothing off. I don’t think what all of us would have done if there hadn’t been dry wood laid on the fireplace hearth. My hubby wouldn’t have been able to get the fireplace burning, plus all of us would have had to go home. Both of us talked about him starting the car plus our going lake home early, although I wanted to stay. I was dry because of the fireplace, plus the flue was clean, so no smoke was coming back into the cabin. Thanks to the fireplace, our weekend went well, plus I went back to the river without falling in again. Of course, the draw of the fireplace had us returning sooner than all of us expected. A picnic in the snow wasn’t half as enticing as a picnic in front of the fireplace.
