Devil in the Woodpile


Firewood is a devil of a chore... known to keep you warm while you're cutting, while you're stacking, when you bring it in, and finally when you BURN it. Richard has been busy this weekend cutting firewood for our winter's fuel, and he's done a really great job. While he's been out doing that, I've been catching up on household chores inside and out... cleaning the house, painting the front door and changing the lockset, mowing the yard etc. We took a little break this morning and went to Home Depot, which we did NOT enjoy and were both HAPPY to get out of that place... we didn't get everything we wanted or needed. And for some reason it's not a happy place to be... dark and a din of noise. Much better to be home on the property being productive and using our time wisely. After a quick dinner, we're off to read for the evening... enjoying being home! The picture above is only a small sampling of what R has been up to for the past two days... he is some hard working man and I'm lucky we share our lives with one another.

Have fun reading!! I saw a book at Borders the other day that reminded me of B - "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" :) It is definitely an activity that should not be neglected. Especially at the end of a hard day's work!
