"Mænd, start dine maskiner" ... "Gentlemen, start your engines"

Måske ikke maskiner, men BESTEMT, dine radiatorer!
Maybe not engines, but DEFINITELY your radiators!

Jeg kender Danskerne bruger vand at varme deres huse, men jeg har ikke kendt hvor procesen faktisk arbejder. Så i går, lærte jeg hvor at tænde på radiatorerne i vores hus, og fandt ud det er meget nemt! Hvert værelse har en radiator, og hver radiator har en individuel kontrol. Jeg var aldrig kold da jeg tog til Danmark sidste vinter, så jeg kender de varmer huset rigtigt godt. Grunden jeg lærte hvor at bruge radiatoren i går er fordi vi er i ENKELT nummer temperatur i Herning hver morgen nu....og det er KØLIG!! (Husk...disse er enkelt nummer i Celcius, ikke Farenheit!)

I know the Danes use water to heat their houses, but I did not know how the process actually works. So yesterday, I learned how to turn on the radiators in our house, and found out it is quite easy! Each room has a radiator and each radiator has its own control. I was never cold when I came to Danmark last winter, so I know they warm the house really well. The reason I learned how to use the radiator yesterday is because we are in SINGLE digit temps in Herning every morning now...and it is CHILLY!! (Remember, these are single digits in Celcius, not Farenheit!)

Efterår er her...Træer skifter farver, solen lukker tidlegere, luften er frisk, Kelli klæder flotte halstørklæder, og vand løber igennem vores radiatorer at lave vores hus varmt og hyggeligt! Min favorit årstid er her!

Autumn is here...Trees are changing colors, the sun is setting earlier, the air is crisp, Kelli is wearing really cute scarves, and water is running through our radiators to make our house warm and cozy! My favorite season is here!

En typisk radiator ... A typical radiator

Vi gik ned til kælderen at tænde på kontroller at varme vores bådeværelse gulv. (Mor, du vil elsker dette!)
We went down to the basement to turn on the controls to warm our bathroom floor.
(Mom, you will love this!)

Radiatorerne føler ikke varme, så planter, tøj, børn, og Albert og Emmitt er sikker!
The radiators do not feel hot, so plants, clothes, children, and Albert and Emmitt are safe!

I am still trying to dig my winter/fall clothes out... I feel like I JUST put them away...

I don't want Fall to come, then it means WINTER will be here soon. Snow and icy...I'm not looking forward to it.

Yes, I am a little sad that summer is over.
I have been fighting to take out all the sweaters I have packed away.
Tonight at Martin's parent house the lit the fireplace for the first time. On a happy note I can't wait to see more of the trees change colors. Fall and the leaves changing are one of my favorite things. :) I would love to see some pictures from where you are.

Love the idea of warm floors. It was in the 50s this morning and I thought it was pretty chilly. I love the Fall also except my allergies are going crazy! Enjoy the changing of the tree colors...I bet that is beautiful.

Do Albert and Emmitt like the heated bathroom floor? Spot would be sprawled out on that thing all the time if we had one.

I put on the first fire in the fireplace (woodstove) just the other day. I waited as long as I could because once the fire addiction starts, I can't stop myself!

At least it sounds like a very efficient way to warm the house!! Nothing worse than not be able to get warm in the winter...of course I turn on the heat when it's 60 degrees Farenheit outside!!!
