The first day of Spring has come and gone at Gatlinburg’s mountain top retreat. The eighty degree temperatures of last week are gone. And here I sit with a fire burning in the fireplace to ward off the chill. Well that’s not really the reason. I just like to see the flicker of a glowing fire in the fireplace and to listen while the wood crackles and sizzles. Nothing is more relaxing than to prop your feet up in a comfortable chair by the fire. Having a good book to read makes enjoyment complete.
