Early last summer, Tim proudly showed off our woodpile. For the first time since he built the covered structure, he'd stuffed it full. We were more than ready for winter.
I'd clicked some pictures of his labor.Pieces of logs seasoned alongside the house for next year.
Last evening, the covered wood looked like this.
And here's where Tim has taken from this next winter's wood to chop those few chunks you saw above.
We burned it all. We're still burning on mornings such as this when the house shivers, because outside it's 28 degrees F.
Thankful for the wood we had, the man who could prepare it, and the efficient stove to burn it in, we try not to wonder what we'll do next. And summer, hey, you can't arrive too soon.
