First I swept the chimney, cleaned out the stovepipe, and cleaned out the oven flues. I always kind of enjoy the first chimney cleaning at the end of the summer. Since the stove has been unused for such a long time, much of the hard creosote has loosened, so I'm able to do the best job possible.
I've been really hungry for Popovers Fontaine for quite a while, so these were my supper.

Marjorie look nice in this photo? Her lovely
appearance is due to my uncle Glen and my
mother-in-law having given her a good shine
for our family reunion back in the first part of July.
I also used the fire to cook some wild plums for making jelly later.
