Is there anything as warm and inviting as a fire in the wood stove or fireplace? The smell of hickory or oak smoke in the air…how thankful I am for such fond memories. Even today, when I smell the smoke from the fire I feel warmth in my soul, not just on my cold body.
Who hasn’t stood in front of the fire roasting the front of yourself then turning to warm the backside? Did you play chicken in front of the heater to see who could stand there the longest?
My Papa said, “When you chop wood it’ll warm you twice. Once when you split it and once when you burn it.” We like using wood for heating because it’s a renewable energy source. I think there’s just nothing as warm and cozy as a wood fire.
