When he's not home, I will build the fire. My kids seem to be surprised that I actually know how. I brush away the old ashes, wad up a few newspapers, put a few pieces of kindling leaned together and light a match. Nothing fancy. I figure it's all just going to burn up anyway. But, my fires will also bring people together to enjoy some toasty warmth on a cold night.
And, if neither Dave or I are home, Andrea will make her own fire. It's an app on our TV, and it looks
pretty convincing. :)
