With all the cold weather we've been having (snow predicted for tonight!), we've been going through a lot of wood on the fire. This is a close-up shot of a red oak log we had in the queue. The variations in color were so pretty, it was a shame to burn it. And just in case we do wake up to a wintry mix in the morning, we're preparing "land of nod" cinnamon buns tonight--yum!
