After the long and seemingly never ending heat of summer, it has turned cooler. A lot of my daily activities now center around the wood stove. Starting the morning fire, feeding said fire and of course, enjoying said fire.

A portion of our week end activities center around cutting, splitting and stacking firewood. We have a good supply of dead fall trees at the end of our pasture. So procuring wood is not much of an issue. We have fallen into a routine of dragging said wood up closer to the house, cutting, splitting and stacking it on the porch. Ah firewood, the fuel that heats you twice.

As I have spoken of before, I enjoy that quiet time in the morning when it is just me, my coffee and the fire. When the heat from the fire envelops the house, I know it is time to move on to all the other daily activities, but that bit of serenity follows me throughout my day.

Edited to add: Almost for got to include a reminder that new recipes have been added over at RKC-The Recipe File.

  1. We didn’t quite get our gulch home closed in and are in town for the winter. Before we moved we also heated with wood and I miss the morning fire ritual sooooo much.
