Built a fire this morning, using fairly big logs.
As I was bringing in the first log, I saw the first snowflake. It was huge. Then another. And another. A few minutes later, the flakes were smaller but there were a lot more of them.
Because I picked big logs, it took a few hours for the fire to really get going. But it’s a long lasting fire and it’s giving off great heat now.
It was a tough decision, earlier today, while it snowed. Did I want to sit in my office, where the windows gave me a beautiful view of the snowfall — or sit in my living room with the laptop, in front of the fire (with less view).
I did a little of both. Then I went downtown.
Upon my return, my dog was sleeping on the couch, in front of the fire.
I made her move a couple of feet, so I could have the choice spot.
And now here I sit, with warm feet. The fire to my right. The dog to my left.
And I need to get up and go get some exercise — and don’t feel much like doing it.
