Dsc03525This fire was my prize in a bet with Sweet Husband.  I bet him that the date we had our first fire last year was earlier than the date we made this fire.  Due to the power of blogging, I was able to prove myself right (our first fire last year was October 9), and Sweet Husband proceeded to build me a roaring little fire. 

In anticipation of winning future such bets, here are some statistics for this year . . . .

  • First frost--October 13
  • First fire--October 16
  • First night with extra blanket on the bed--October 18

Aside from compiling these riveting factoids, I've been reading Barrack Obama's new book.  I'll be reporting in with a review sometime soon.
