Free sticks!

I walked up to the grocery store today and collected sticks along the way, for kindling.  Yes, I am the crazy lady on the bus with the tote bag full of sticks.

After two freezing nights without a fire, i cleaned out the stove and the drawer where the ash pan sits and it seems to be drawing better now.  It's been cold without the fire--like seeing your breath cold--so I gathered loads of sticks and got a roaring wood fire going, and then added coal.  The boat is nice and toasty now.
