I'm on Fire!!!

Happy New Year to you all! I can't believe it is already 2013! Time goes so fast!
We have had some down time the last two weeks which has been nice. School started back up today so I will be back to work this week. I'm ready though, by this time of year everything slows down so I might as well go make some money.
My new year started out on Fire. Literally...We heat our house with an outdoor wood furnace which is great by the way! So we were stacking wood so it would be close to the furnace and I was warming myself by the furnace with the door open. It was like 10 degrees outside!
I turned around to warm my backside for about 1-2 minutes then turned back facing the furnace and my husbands gloves that he placed right above the door were burning!
More like they were melting away, black, and smoking with no fingers left on them! I grabbed them quickly and started to show my husband. He was a little aggravated because he hadn't even worn a hole in them!
He then told me to turn around.
So I did.
He then told me that I might want to go get my hair cut!!!
I about DIED!!!
Ok not die but you get the point! I reached around to feel my pony tail and it CRUMBLED in my hand!!!
This is when I really about DIED!!
I had stood to close to the fire and BURNT about 3 inches of my pony tail!!!
Needless to say I called my salon and told them I had a hair emergency and they got me in to fix my very close call!!!
I had 3 inches cut off and quite a bit of layers to get all the burnt hair out! Did I mention it stunk so bad!! Yuck! What a way to start the new year!
If I hadn't of been so upset I might would have thought to take a picture. Pictures were not foremost on my mind.  Other than that 2013 has been good so far!
Anyway, I wanted to share a picture of the poster I bought my Love for Christmas.

It is a 1950's Dodge truck poster that we both really liked so I surprised him with it! We are a big fan of trucks!
It is something that he loves and I actually don't mind hanging it in the house! Usually he wants to hang things that are not exactly what I had in mind for the living room!
Have a great day everyone!


  1. I'm sorry but I had to laugh about your hair... Please post a picture of your new cut! I had a close call a few months ago while I was burning building scraps and it got out of control and burnt some of our yard... Yikes it was really close to the new house.

  2. P.S. this makes me think of Jo in Little Women, when she burns the back of her skirt!
