    P9280087.JPG peaceful and relaxing! usually I can relight the fire the next morning from the remaining coals. I always try! first get them exposed, then paper, then some axe split cedar kindling, then some kitchenwood... and once ablaze... some firewood. :)

    Still burning wood here, though not 24/7.

    At the shop they keep putting wood in it, was dripping sweat yesterday. 75+* is a bit hot, unless it's cold outside.

    I let mine go out yesterday for the first time but had to relite last night. I may have to get one more load of wood if this keeps up. Got enough for a couple weeks up at the house.
    I sure hope this burn season is done soon. I love burning but went through a lot of wood this year.

    I think I'll light up right now. Chilly and rainy here. Well, it's been rainy for a month, but today is dry.

    I stopped well over a month ago, maybe longer. We've already hit mid 80's this season. We will probably hit the century mark come mid June.
