I love the firelog channel. I don’t have a fireplace currently but grew up with fireplaces in most of my homes and enjoying bonfires. My mom and I would alternate standing in front of our fireplace warming ourselves or getting so hot we couldn’t stand to be in front of the crackling fire any longer.
I like the firelog channel so much a good friend bought me a DVD of the fire log and I love a quiet evening alone reading with the firelog crackling in the background. But I mainly obsess over the firelog when it is the holiday season and I can flip to the channel for an hour here or there.
Soon that channel will be gone. I am sad. The firelog represents near zero schedules, relaxed days, family time, I am not ready for that to end, I am not ready to get into the swing of 2013.
I want more holiday time.
I want casual fun days with my hubby and Little A.
I want slow mornings.
I want to wake after 8 am and the first noise to hear to be that of my daughter calling my name, not the annoying chime of the alarm clock.
I want to sing christmas carols and listen to holiday stations.
I want mid day walks with our dog collecting chestnuts, twigs, rock and other things to give to the squirrels.
I want to hang out with my extended family, laughing and eating.
I want to share late night conversations with my husband and some great wine.
That is what the firelog means to me. It makes me physically warmer and keeps me connected to the happiness of the holidays. I will flip to the firedog a few more times throughout January to help me ease back into the full swing of the new year.
Enjoy some firedog
Happy New Year
