Make sure that they aren't going to roll out when they burn down.
The house is a bit smoke clouded but everything is okay. Well one of my fingers hurts a bit but no big deal there.
Of course part of the reason I had such trouble is that I finally got the hang of our damper and was able to heat up the fire propely. This unfortunately also heated up the fireplace tools that sit...next to the fireplace.
I had to use the poker which was hot and a prybar from the laundry room to put the log back in the fire. Looks like I'm going to have to make some fire tongs.
In other news...SNOW! It's been coming down all day and is still going. I'll likely go out and plow later but right now I just want to stay indoors. And I have the excuse that my daughter is home so that works for me. ;-)
As for Toradora! it's a slapstick high school romance anime that's actually pretty funny. I'm about a third of the way through it since I can't spend time studying out in the workshop due to MLK Jr. day and my daughter being home. Tomorrow things will be back to normal.
