Thanksgiving, in photos

I lifted these photos from Galen’s sister’s blog… Thanks, Alayna!

Here we are, looking a little flushed in front of this awesome fire:

That brick in the middle of the flames is made of compressed sander dust from the mill where Galen works.  The sawdust is a byproduct of finishing the lumber, so they figured out a way to use it (instead of just throwing it away).  Galen brought a couple to Thanksgiving, since his uncle has a fireplace, and they work really well!

For some reason, I find these bricks totally awesome and fascinating.  First of all, it’s great that the company is trying to use all the bits and pieces of the trees they harvest.  Second, it’s neat to be able to actually use something they make… since I don’t usually have much use for wood chips or hardwood lumber.  I guess I don’t personally have a fireplace, either, but at least it’s a concept I can wrap my mind around.

Hope you all had fun and warm Thanksgivings, too!

  1. I love it! You guys are such a cute couple. And I loved the brick thing, too. I can’t wait until we have a real fireplace someday and can get a whole bunch of those…
