Dances with Wood

Many know and understand this phrase. Having a wood cook stove as well as an outside wood furnace means that we are in a constant waltz. Last night we fired up the wood furnace for our home and helped the neighbor with hers. Weather.com said that the high today was going to be 70; they lied (currently 57.2). Last night brought a light frost. Ronnie thought we fired up the wood furnace early this year until I came out to blogland and found the entry where the furnace was installed – October 1st! Nope, not early, right on time.

And now for the Halloween blog party, we adore this holiday for numerous reasons. One of my favorite phrases is listed below; I’ve always wondered who coined this phrase…

Eye of newt, and toe of frog, Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting, Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble, Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble
--William Shakespeare Witches in Macbeth

and now I know. =) Perhaps I can have it memorized in time for October 31.

Tonite we head to James River for an away volleyball game. Have a great October 1!
