4X4 Photo Meme: Bucket of Fire

I saw this meme in many variations as I visited blogs this week-end. My sister Silver Valley Girl sent it this way so I'll try it. The only difference with the others were the number of the folder and picture.

So here are the rules:

1. Go to the fourth folder where you keep your photos.

2. Post the fourth picture in that folder.

3. Explain the picture.

4. Tag four fellow bloggers to join in the fun.

All fellow bloggers.... join in and let me know so I can come peek!Here is my fourth picture in my fourth folder. This is not a new fireplace for our gazebo. When the weather was so cold the smoke stopped going out the top of the chimney. I thought I was doing something wrong in building up the fire when JEJ was gone. The whole sunroom filled up with an awful smoke. The same thing happened to JEJ. He took the burning firewood out of the stove, put it in a coal bucket and placed it in the snow. I had to take a picture of it because it did look like a bucket to warm up while shoveling or building a snowman. This cute fire burned a long time. The problem? When the weather was so cold the moisture on the mesh around the top of the chimney combined with soot froze and the smoke couldn't get out. JEJ hit it with a snow shovel while removing snow on the roof and once again the sunroom wood stove worked beautifully.


  1. oh goodness.. that's a smoke filled story :)

  2. It does look like the kind of thing you'd use as a quick warmup without having to go indoors. I did this at my place (the meme, not the bucket o' fire), but bent the rules a bit in order to post a pic I'd not ever put up before.

  3. perfect photo for that meme!

    I worried about our furnace vent -- I was afraid we would get CO poisoning.

  4. I'm having trouble getting my comment posted, hopefully it will work this time.
    You have such a great blog, I really need to come here more often!
    I tried this meme, but changed the numbers just a bit.


I always enjoy reading comments!
