Friends gathering in a backyard need a coagulating agent; fire. A backyard fire seems to instantly draw people in to the magic of sitting around a fire sharing stories and relaxing. We recently had another gathering and it was a very enjoyable evening. We played some darts, played a bit of washer toss, drank some beer, shared tales of past exploits and dreams of tomorrow.
We have spent some time cleaning up the backyard, the fence is almost done and we decided that the yard needs to have a simpler, cleaner look; gave us something to do on Saturday. We had a few people over of Sunday evening where it was a long weekend, and it was quite a relaxing time. I enjoy playing darts, but there is something really awesome about playing outside by the fire. Having the wireless speakers hung up and working makes getting tunes to the backyard much easier as well. I love it when a plan comes together.
Here’s to the evocative magical nature of a firepit and friends.
One can enjoy a wood fire worthily only when he warms his thoughts by it as well as his hands and feet. ~ Odell Shepherd
