Finally I Found a letter I can call my Favorite ‘cuz I know several F words that tickle my Fancy!
On Saturday I carried 100 pieces of Firewood from our woodshed to our deck. Phew was I aching after that. Our highs have been in the 30’s (F) so I usually have a Fire going at night. My Fireplace is a BIS (from Canada) and is very efficient.
I might have mentioned this before. I love Fire. I’m the expert Fire-starter at our cabin. I know the best way to “build” the kindling to have a perfect Fire every time. Not bragging Folks, just stating the Facts! To build a Fire I like to use a stick or two of Fatwood. Fatwood is the wood from tree stumps that has concentrated sap, so ignites pronto. I usually buy mine from L.L.Bean. I also always make sure to have a charged Fire extinguisher near the Fireplace. That’s prudent, even though I’ve never needed to use one. We also keep a Bible on our Fireplace hearth…God’s word is also a Fire extinguisher of sorts, if you get my meaning here. Anywhooo, we also have these cool little green sticks that when put in a Fire they make the prettiest colors. They have some chemical on them (that Friends will probably Find out was the eventual cause of our croaking!!). Along with the Fotos of all my F words I’m also showing one of my ceramic Fireplace door. Now, I really do love to clean out the ashes each day, but cleaning the door is a real pain in the butt. I have this spray stuff called Stove and Hearth Cleaner that is a help, but sometimes that black stuff is so baked on I need to really to use a powerful arm. You can’t use anything abrasive on it, due to the type of ceramic glass. Well, you get the picture…I do the door about every Five days of burning.
Okay, enough about my Fire related chores. For more A to Z bloggers let your Fingers do the walking on over to Jen’s blog. Have a good week friends!
