Chiminea

Sometime ago we bought an outdoor fire pit that was rather bulky and cumbersome to deal with. We never lit it and it's been relegated to the garage. Boo came upon this chiminea at Kohl's and told me about it only after we'd been cruising Hollyweird.

We agreed on what we were willing to spend, returned to Kohl's to find the price and bought it - despite it exceeding what we'd agreed upon. LOL











Once assembled Boo wanted to fire it up and I was too lazy to go to the store. I finally agreed and we bought treated fireplace logs. It's kind of hard to find dried firewood at 8:30 p.m. in Southern California.

I am so glad that I changed my mind because last night was crisp and perfect for an outdoor fire in our terrace.

We garnered a few stares from passersby as the fire really "lit up the area" and illuminated everything else quite well! Mostly, it was just wonderful to see the happy and proud expression on Boo's face.

That looks great! I love the idea of an outdoor fire of some sort. But never had one.

Now is this on your front porch? Since you mentioned people passing by and giving it a look.

And I'm very happy that you both really enjoyed it. Especially Boo, since it seems it was his idea. :-)
