Fire therapy

I wanted to pull a little more honeysuckle and blackberry briars out of the blueberry bushes and thought it would be a good day to have a fire nearby.  There were some pine branches, fig branches, privet, and old tomato vines that needed burning.  I enjoy watching a fire and find it emotionally therapeutic.
I used one kitchen match, some pine straw, and some little pine twigs to get it going.  After it had burned a while, I fetched some marshmallows.
After I eat the crunchy part, I like to toast the inner part of the marshmallow, too.  No charred marshmallow for me.  Golden brown is the way to go.
There is nothing quite like having a fire.

  1. Oh yes, we agree with the fire, too bad some of the RV parks donot allow ground fires anymore. We toy with the idea of hauling around the raised frame, but so far have not. Sherry loves the roasted marshmellows, and only the toasted ones, ha!. Like the entry because I love a fire too. I bet it felt good .
