My daughter and I have been talking about how nice woodstoves are in the wintertime. I have a fireplace but up until now it's just been a showpiece. I was afraid to light a fire in it. Yesterday I hired a chimney sweep and now. I'm cozy in my livingroom in front of the fire. Right now I'm using scrap wood from the scrap wood pile but when it warms up I will go out to the wash and trim some of the acacia's (cat's claw) It's like mesquite and makes a good fire. The shots below show my nice comfy chair I sit in and a shot of the mantle above the fireplace. I live in a mobile home and the living room is narrow but plenty big enough for me, it's just hard to get a picture of the whole fireplace.
