    And it's cold enough to light a fire. Thought I was done for the season, but no.

    Memorial Day weekend and I'm out scrounging for firewood for TODAY not next winter....

    Forecast for here in RI is a low of 38 to 40...guess it could worse, at least I'm not in the Berkshires with snow possible/likely.

    Oh yeah, and 90 byt the end of this coming week.....

    Yeah, I had a fire today, too. I'm actually probably going to light another one in a little while. This spring has been ridiculous.

    My favorite part of this pic is the stack of super cedars in the bucket.

    Me too. We expect a low of around 40* by us. Maybe a quick hot fire tonight, or maybe just a quick one in the morning. But by tomorrow afternoon we're in the low to mid 70s.

    It was a little chilly today, but didn't keep us from doing what we planned. We spent the day on the north fork; bought some plants, let the boys run around on one of the play areas at the organic farm.

    It was nice having the day off. First day off in 14 days. In the past two weeks I worked around 180 hours total. The slow pace of the north fork of LI always helps calm my soul. I took two naps today too.

    The temp outside doesn't warrant it but I just lit off a sympathy fire for you guys. We will be back in the 90s in a couple of days.

    One more burn before I go up and clean the chimney before the roofers show up to rip the top off of this sucker.

    I think I'll build one tonight, right before bed. Past two mornings it was 64 degrees in the house. She wasn't nagging, but she DEFINATELY was 'finessing' me to build one. I was gonna try and hold out (I would, if it was up to me). But I'll cave in for her, just because I love her.....==c

    Both stoves running... damp as Hades (I know, I know !!!)

    At this rate, I'll have to bring fire wood in.

    And this was my year for no fire wood in the house over the summer, and a repaint of the fire wood ring that stores it >>
