...the first fire...7:26 AM
We had the first fire in the fireplace last night.
It had less to do with dropping temperatures and more to do with me thinking we had a wasp nest in the chimney. However, the kids were enamored with the gentle flicker of the flames. We have all been a bit sick for the past few days, so the extra coziness made it all a bit better.
The last two days have been simply gorgeous. The temperatures rose back up into the low seventies and we have been soaking up every last fall sun ray. I love falls in the mitten.
Maybe someday I will learn to love all of winter. But for now, we are enjoying the cooler air and the slower time.
