The magic of a fire and a shared meal

There is something amazing about the way a fire enthrall. It can seem that no other entertainment is necessary than the wonder at the way the flames dance and wave and gradually consume the wood they are fed. 

Of course if you are male like my husband they also call you to action - to feed them and poke them and rearrange them. 

We love to cook on the fire at the end if the day in summer, to sit around it eating meat toasted over the fire, watching the sun go down, maybe with a little music. Tonight an old friend shared the fire with us and we sat and chatted until it got dark and the fire started to get cold. 

What I love about summer....
