Stick Fire

Stick Fire:
The act of burning small splits of wood in the wood stove before heating season begins.

Autumn is officially here for us.

The evening is cool and damp. Just calling for a
"stick fire" to take the chill off..

Hubby had a tub of "sticks" split and at the ready on the front porch.
You know, just in case.

He finished the fire place surround this spring. It only took me 7 years to decide what to put on the wall behind the wood stove. He built the mantle for me from a photo. I still need to prime and paint it. So much better than the drywall backer board with the footprint on it.

There is a Georgia Jet in the oven..
Jets go great with "stick fires"!

Have a great evening!!
