Toasting My Toes

For some reason, I couldn't seem to get warm today, so after dinner tonight, we pushed the table back and built a fire. Our firewood pile right now is full of recycled wood from Dad's work, which are cut into circles and look strangely like burning tires, along with all of the paper trash or cardboard that we separate and save.

I sat toasting my toes and sipping vanilla chamomile tea while Hubby quizzed us on Amharic vocabulary (score: 330 vocab words learned) and the kids played with their Webkinz or colored pictures. This is my favorite quiet family evening at home: all of us snug in our warm house contentedly pursuing our various diversions or learning something new.
