Okay, so we aren't known for our fortitude when it comes to cold weather. We whine when it doesn't climb above 65 degrees in a day. But as a transplanted Northerner to Florida, I enjoy the cooler temperatures, but also sympathize with the natives because as much as I hate to admit it, my blood has thinned and I'm not used to "prolonged" (read, 2 days or more) of temps below 60.
Yes, we are wimps, but we still know how to make a fire!
We don't have an "in-house" fireplace, so we have improvised with an outdoor firepit that we use for the short cooler months here.
It's such a treat and even the Bostons get into the mood and enjoy the fact that we are sitting outside in cold (to us) weather.
It thrills my inner-Canadian to be able to have a fire as it was something I grew up with and missed for many years.
You can see Panda and Sadie are enjoying their fireside cow bone (courtesy of Uncle Kurt at Christmas). And below the Maven and Darcy are basking in the glow of a Florida Fireplace.
Best Wishes to all our good friends throughout blogland and RL (real life) for a wonderful New Year!
