~ Day 5 ~
The most tangible of all visible mysteries – fire. ~Leigh Hunt
The weatherman predicts cooler weather to arrive today! Goodbye 80° nights (we hope). I find myself dreaming of buggless evenings and cool breezes. In anticipation, we fixed-up the fire pit! (proof that I’m an optimist)
Sitting around the fire after dinner, outdoor movies and enjoying this glorious season have been some of our best memories as a family. So we spent a few minutes and made a place for fall nights on our back patio, which was in summer/recovery mode.
Our pit needed a facelift.
Gracie, our Golden Retriever, was right there to help, of course.
Lava rocks from Loew’s promise to keep the heat in and pretty-up the pit. ($4.60 a bag)
Heart resistant Krylon freshened the rusty ring – looks like new!
Sticks from the yard are plentiful. We live in a wooded area, so this serves a double purpose. Picking up sticks is part of the yard routine for the guys. Now, all we need is a cool night and a clear calendar to be home. Fall initiation in the back-yard – coming soon.
