Tomorrow me and Mr LIL are going out to our tiny house in the archipelago. Last time we were there we spent the weekend chopping down trees that will become fire wood and burning all the branches. It was a lot of hard work moving all the logs and branches but it is satisfying being outside all day, really have to use your body and to see the progress that you’re making. I was responsible for dragging all the branches and Mr LIL was in charge of the chain saw (he has had training and always wears proper protective equipment).
There is something hypnotizing with fire. Sitting and staring into the crackling fire when the darkness has fallen has a very soothing and calming effect. You somehow don’t even have to think, you just stare into the flames with a blank mind.
