First Fire of 2011
We had the first fire in our backyard this past weekend - not out of a need to sit out there and relax, but because I have a HUGE stack of wood that is a mess and I wanted to bring some order to the area. It is still a work in progress, but after burning through the material that was in the box over the winter (Christmas tree branches, yard waste, etc), things are looking better.
We have a weird, evasive animal that is making a home in our yard these past few weeks. And by "making a home", I mean taking HUGE smelly dumps in weird spots. I have Animal Control coming over today to set a trap so hopefully we'll be free of whatever it is soon and can go back to enjoying more fires like these!
