Ring the Alarm!

Another fire's burning ohh oh!

Okay so those aren't the exact words to the song, and I just butchered it. While most people have gone away camping this week-end (it's a holiday weekend for us Canucks), we found ourselves in our back yard in front of our ghetto fire pit. Watching the fire dance is very mesmerizing and magical. I sat there staring without even speaking. The crackling and hissing were music to my ears.

The fire kept the bugs at bay and the chill off my spine. We would have roasted marshmallows, only I forgot to buy some and the ones we had were rock hard.

I agree, sitting by a fire is mesmerizing. My favorite place to sit by a fire is at my friends' cabin on Cape Breton Island. Oh how I wish I were there right now.

I recognize the song, so that must mean you didn't butcher it that much! :-) What a wonderful fire! That must have been so cozy and nice. Fire is such an amazing and beautiful thing, you can't help but be mesmerized. Next time don't forget the marshmallows!! My goodness, it's like a rule to have marshmallows when you're lighting a fire like that! lol

isew, I'm hooked now.

Hobbyzu, yes, what was I thinking? I've stocked up on marshmallows. Tonight is Firecracker night so I hope to capture that with pictures.
