Our perfect blanket of white has melted and it is a gray, drizzly afternoon—just right for a fire.
The chimney sweep came on Thursday and we have a good supply of wood from trees that have fallen over the years. Russ is teaching me how to build and stoke a fire. This is my first one.
I’m glad we did not convert this fireplace to gas. I love the crackle of seasoned wood.
Is there such a thing as “wood fire scented” candles? I’ll have to look. This fireplace is too efficient to give us that lovely smell. I would have to go outside for a walk in the rain.
I set up the ironing board near the fireplace and ironed perfectly dampened cotton pillow cases.
Now it’s time to get out my machine and sew. The fabric is printed and cut. Is anyone inklingoing with me?
Russ wants to make french toast in his new panini grill for dinner. That’s fine with me!
I hope it is a cozy day at your house too.
