Last night we lit the fire for the first time this autumn. We’d seen the weather forecast: a cold front moving south from the Arctic, so we knew colder air was on the way. So we filled the log basket and laid the fire. I’d forgotten how instant the heat is from our wonderful log burner. And the orange glow of the flames was reflected in the sky outside with yet another wonderful sunset. We sat outside and watched the sky catch fire, but as soon as the sun was gone we noticed the chill in the air. I don’t mind the change of seasons when they creep up on me like this, when the sun is still warm on my skin at mid-day but the house is toasty in the evening.
