Autumn Fire

Today is one of those days….windy and cool and leaves falling everywhere. Finally feels like a change is in the air. Coffee pot perks on the wood stove and the fire is burning strong. Not winter strong, but enough to take the chill and damp out of the house and bring comfort into our home.

The coffee is hot and steaming, we are listening to a 78 on our portable phonograph and I can’t help but feel like a little kid in this gigantic fort with all of my favorite things. Tonight, we rest and enjoy the hearth, because tomorrow is an early day with work outside to prepare for the Winter.

(The stove is an Elmira Wood View Cook Stove, 1840 Model)
