Chop Wood Carry Water

Well not quite but almost. I don't have to carry the water but I do have to bring in the wood if we want to keep this place toasty warm. I haven't quite reached the halfway mark in my wood pile yet so it should be good for the winter plus the summer campfires in our backyard pit.

I haven't counted how many wheel barrels I've brought in so far this winter but I'm starting to think it's enough already. I'm done with winter. It's been nice. It's been fun. There's been lots and lots of beauty to admire but let's move on to longer days, green grass, sandals, shorts and bikes.

I love walking but I sure do miss my bike in winter. I think my friend from Armstrong figured that out about me. Look at the card she sent me. Drool....... I want to be in the bush not be bringing in the bush to warm the house.

Oh well, I shouldn't complain. It hasn't been a harsh winter so far and the days are getting longer it just seems to take forever.


  1. Yes, we're on the home slide into spring already!
    I sure don't miss chopping wood, carrying wood in, or cleaning up the ashes or the woodchips.
    But I miss the wood heat, the crackling fire, and the scent.

    1. I hear you. It would be nice to get what is missed without what having what is not missed but I guess one comes with the other. You're welcome to come sit by my fire anytime.
