Last night I built a fire in the tile oven for the first time this fall. This made me happy. Fall is a gloomy affair so far, gray and wet and the leaves aren’t doing anything very exciting yet, but at least I can build fires! I love building fires (in a safe place, with wood, to warm a home – not in a scary pyromaniac freak kind of way) and I love that particular kind of warmth. And the crackly sound. And the fact that, if you stuff the oven before you go to bed, the house is still warm in the morning, yay. Next up: knitting sweaters and making soup!
Okay, I don’t care that the weather sucks. I’m happy fall is here.
Song du jour of the day: Sit Down By the Fire, by the Pogues.
