It’s freezing here on the world’s whitest beaches. Beaches and freezing do not go together well. However it has turned me into an indoor pyromaniac. Not because I like to, by official definition play with fire, but rather I am loving being able to brag and say I made the house warm just like hubby does.
You see it’s usually him who is the fire master in the house, however he did eventually have to return to his job outside of the home after the holidays. It was in this moment I realized “holy smokes I am going to have to heat the house without him AND without a heater“. As I am sure you guessed, panic momentarily set in until I realized my phrase for 2012 “BIG and BOLD“, so off I trucked to get some wood…from the front porch. In I came at the peachy hour of 6:07 a.m. and got to fire making. Before I continue, a little side story.
Nature and I do not mix well, unless it’s me in a bathing suit laying out on the white sand then we mix just fine. However trees, grass, wood, fire, and myself are not on friendly terms. I don’t like nature and unless it’s spring or summer and warm, nature doesn’t care for me either…why else would she bring freezing temperatures to Florida?
I am happy to say that not only did I successfully get the fire going, I have a nice set of coals keeping the fireplace hot that blazes the next piece of wood I throw on. No heater, no problem! I couldn’t be prouder of myself. 2012 is going to be one HOT year…pun totally intended. Now with this kind of luck I forsee a Disney and/or Universal rep contacting me about the family trip I am going to be taking this year.
Fire….check! Bring it on 2012, we are going to have a GREAT year!
