As part of the garage project, we put in a fireplace (I've talked about it at length before.) All summer long, I tried to enjoy it, but everytime I put a fire on, it was just too stinkin' hot to really think that it was a great idea. We had a few smaller fires - and enjoyed the looks but couldn't sit too close because the atmospheric temperatures were in the 90's, so the fires just made things worse.
But...with last weeks temperatures in the 70's and 60's at night, the fireplace is getting put through it's proper paces. I think we had fires 5 out of 7 nights last week. My nephew and niece enjoyed the s'mores part of the night quite a bit.
