B is for BURN

Today was such a beautiful day outside and the temp. was 47 degrees.  This was the warmest day in Michigan in a long 
time.  Me and the hubby took advantage of the nice day and very wet ground and had a fire.  We try to recycle everything we can from plastic, glass, paper and metal but they won't take cardboard.  I hate throwing it in the garbage so we burn them.  Luckily we live in the country and are able to do this year around.  The problem is, you wouldn't believe how many 
box's were piled in my garage.  So the box's were burnt today and the garage was cleaned out.  All in all a successful day!


  1. Burn baby burn.
    Disco inferno.
    Port Huron takes cardboard.

  2. This reminds me of when we decided to burn cardboard in a burn pit in a small college town. The boys put too much cardboard in the pit to start and someone called the Fire Department! They made us put it out and refused to believe us when we said it would be burned out in just a few minutes so we had to put a hose and our extra water we had bought for camping on it... and sure enough it reduced to a tiny pile of ash and was out in no time.

    I was hacking and coughing for weeks from inhaling the steam and ash from putting it out though.

    Lesson learned though-- no burn pits in town!

  3. Great post! I wish you could follow up on this topic!
