Living in the Great Northwest means that you could very well be trying to keep your house warm even though it is June. In our lovely home our woodstove is our main source of heat. Meet my nemesis...
This is our single source of heat. My wonderful husband will start a fire when he comes home from work, stoke it ( put a load of wood in it) before we go to bed. By the time I come home in the early afternoon it is still warm but due to my lack of focus and attention the fire dies out. My husband comes home and says "oh, I get to start another fire." I say to him "oh, I meant to put wood on the fire", or I hear him pull in the driveway and I pull open the woodstove door and rush out to get more wood but alas it is dead anyway. I say to him " darn, I really didn't mean for it to go out". He is thinking "yeah, whatever". The other problem I have is knowing which wood to put in the woodstove. You may say " what does it matter?" But if you are married to my husband this "does matter". We have two types of wood on the back deck....

This kind and.......
This kind.
The difference between these two piles is more than color. :) See someone like me only notices the color. The dark colored wood is oak and the lighter colored wood is fir. Oak burns longer than fir. So unfortunately a person like me forgets not only to put wood on the fire put often puts the wrong type of wood on the fire. "Certain" wood is only saved for "specific" circumstances. I know I am being sarcastic! But I have a hard time just keeping the fire going let alone remembering which wood to put on the fire! I think my husband is asking too much of me. I know those of you who are sanguines would say the same thing. Sanguines UNITE!
