Having a fire in our fireplace every night this week has been sooooo nice! It is a warm and relaxing way to end the day. The bad thing is that you need firewood to have a fire! And firewood around Kansas City is expensive I think, $250 for a cord of wood.
So being the thrifty people we are, we decided to pick up all of the sticks in our yard to make our first few fires. After we burned all of those we realized we had a small dead tree in the backyard that would have to be cut down at some point. So, each night when Matt gets home from work, he cuts a limb off of the dead tree and drags it into the garage to be cut up with the miter saw into firewood for the night.
This weekend we will continue working on our living room! We are going to make our ceiling beautiful by adding beadboard and beams. We've measured where the beams will go and have drawn it out on the ceiling. I can't wait to see how it turns out! I'll of course be posting pics next week for you.
Tonight I'm thinking I will make a big pot of Minestrone with tortellini. That sounds like a nice warm meal to have on a cold night doesn't it?
Happy Friday and have a great weekend!
