Loosened from the mud, I find myself floating in a world of possibility.

So can you.

weekend fire

On weekends we live here, in the woods of Wisconsin. This little retreat by the river has also become my "local."

Every Spring I realize - again - that we did a very good thing for ourselves creating this space away from the city. It is cabin life on the cheap! There is no stunning view of water, no tourist enticing landscape near by, just woods and quiet. It took us over five years but we're here and it's good.

We have a great fireplace area with ringstones taken from the road we put in. It is our only source of heat right now. Our furnace recently stopped working, so no heat in the trailer. We stayed out at the fire until late at night.

And most weekends, the fire becomes our primary cooking area. This weekend it was a ribeye steak from Ready Meats!
