Wood

Larry finished cutting and splitting next winter's wood. It's all neatly stacked and out to dry before moving it under cover once the fall hits.

Dealing with wood was somewhat of a new learning curve for us and Larry loves working with it. It's hard to describe....but once bitten with the wood burning bug, it seems to get in your blood. Who would've thunk?

Larry's handiwork (along with a bit of help from Tyler, Brittney and Jake)

Around here wood is referred to as the fuel that warms you three times: once when you split it, once when you stack it, and once when you burn it. I don't relish the thought of putting up the winter's firewood in July! We usually do it in spring, or else the previous fall, when the weather is cooler.

Looks like plenty you've got there! My dh also finds firewood prep curiously satisfying.

THAT looks like a LOT of work! Wow! You all should be toasty warm this winter. I love the smell of burning wood. Nothing quite like it.

I'd love to talk to you about the move to Newfoundland. My family is seriously considering it....

Like what Miranda says about the wood warming you three times....
Lots of wood!
How are you doing Linda? How is your homeopathic treatment going? Wondered how your recovery continues? Thoughts of you.
