Burning Wood

Sorry for the absence, but I've been holed up at home making dumplings, and before I know it, the day is over.

Now that it's cooking hot, it's hard to imagine that just a couple of weeks back, we actually burned some wood in the stove in the middle of June. The weather has been gloomy and damp, with seemingly non-stop rain. In addition to the coolness, it really gets you down when it’s a bit chilly, so we decided that if it was going to be gray and miserable, at least we could be warm. We fired up the stove, and since it wasn’t really freezing outside, man did that stove get hot. A little disconcerting, actually, but it sure felt good to be warm.

Until the next time, thanks for reading.
