For the inexperienced – that’s Fire Wood.
I know in Canada fuel shows up in a truck or just arrives through a pipe. Here, I do it differently.
Do you forget that there are 14 fireplaces – now only 10 (I closed 4 of them). I’m sure back in the day the house had a dedicated “Fire Boy”. I know at Christmas when I have 3 fireplaces going it is dangerous to give me anything because out of habit my hands will through it on the fire. It is all I can do to keep up.
However, I will say there is nothing like a fireplace and a warm blanket to relax in. It is worth all the gathering, cutting, splitting and lighting to enjoy that moment.
So, here is how my fuel arrives….
And the result when it ends in the fireplace…
