I Love Sundays

I love Sundays, it's such a slow moving day. Normally I take a nap when we get home from church, but not today. Today we worked in the yard gathering up dead branches; it seems we never run out of branches that need burning.
I love how a fire looks when first started;
But I love it more as it burns down.
When I stand near a fire and listen to the crackling I think of camping. When I was young we camped all the time and roasted marshmallows over a hot fire.
As soon as the weather is cooler I plan to roast hot dogs and marshmallows over a nice warm fire. Hummm, or maybe I'll just cook a full meal over the fire.

Great minds and all that. Another blogger friend posted a recipe for homemade marshmallows (using ingredients that we would never be able to find now) with directions on how to "toast" them over a fire. (This was from an old cookbook.) I laughed out loud.

I was surprised to see no one roasting something.

Packrat, if you want a GREAT recipe for home made marshmallows, made with ingredients readily found in the grocery store, let me know! I have one. Patty, please pass this on in case she doesn't see this.

I like Sunday's too, if they are restful the way they are meant to be! At least you can have a bonfire on your property. We DO have that firepit, but right now, the mosquitoes takes away all the fun!
