First fires 2023 edition

sam in front of fire

Last week marked the first fire of the season in our wood-burning stove (aka my favorite appliance in our house). If I had my way, we would have had the thing lit since October 1st (like last year), but my wife is more sensible and suggested that maybe we wait a bit longer this year and let our wood go a bit further. Fine, but when we did light it, we all gathered around and watched it in the dark. It was brilliant.

See last year’s lighting for more about how the stove works. As a first-time stove owner, it’s been pretty interesting both how efficient and clean these things are. A must-have for Scotland.

Comments welcome!
