Now that's what I call a fire.

"Fire shall be kept burning continually on the alter; it is not to go out." Lev. 6:13

After posting the firewood, I thought I'd post the scene I awoke to this morning. Even with a minimal supply of cured wood, Hubby was able to get a roaring fire going. His secret is to start with one or two pieces of split cured wood, get the fire really hot, and add green wood to keep it going. As it cools throughout the day, he simply throws in another piece of split cured wood. Works like a charm, as you can see.

However, we still rely on the furnace during the weekdays and at night after the fire cools. The Scripture quoted is our goal for next year.

Mmmm, lovely and cosy! We have a woodburner and it is currently keeping us delightfully warm and toasty! Wish we could find a free and plentiful supply of logs though!

Oooohhhh, I am JEALOUS! My husband grew up with wood heat and has conformed me to such a view. Unfortunately, we are paying the electric monster, since we rent. I can live vicariously through you though!

Thanks for stopping by my blog-it was nice to hear from you!
