Husband and I started a fire in the fireplace in our apartment for the first time tonight.

Apparently, we've had better ideas, because although we had the damper open (and yes, we checked) we still ended up with a smoky house.

(I think it was too cold for a first fire).

Oh, well.

As consolation, I discovered, thanks to the quiz going around the RevGalBlogPals that:

Aww...you are the plant of love! You are the
mistletoe! You are a loving, romantic person
who likes to do what is best for the one or
ones you care about mostly. You are very
affectionate and enjoy being close to people.
You believe that love brings you together,
which is a wonderful thing. You are most likely
going to have a very nice and marvelous season.
Your inventive mind could come up with anything
interesting to do. Merry Christmas =)

I really don't know much about fireplaces, but I think it might be that your chimney is not sufficiently tall and under certain conditions will puff. We had that problem in our "big house". We solved the problem by installing some glass doors. We could close them until the fire heated the firebox. You might ask somebody who knows more about it.

a tip from my FIL
you can use a heater fan to warm up the chimney a bit - it helps with the low pressure in the air apparently

and my granny in the good old days stood in front of the fire with an open double sheet of newspaper encouragign the fire to draw (or something) it always worked but looked funny

thanks for stopping by stf. church is supposed to be more than a club! It's so frustrating sometimes!!!

Oh and when I did the quiz I was the christmas gift apparently lol
