What We’ve Been Up To

The temperatures here have been wonderful.  Upper 50’s for several days now.  We actually did not have a fire yesterday or today.  Amazing!  So what do we do when it’s this warm outside-cut wood, of course!  Here are a few pictures.


This tree had been dead for quite a while.  It was a pretty big tree.  I hope you can see it.  If you look at the right of the picture you can see where we cut it down.  Hubby was very glad for his new larger chain saw.  His old one would never have cut through it.


The wooded area where we were cutting opens up into a beautiful field.


We wheelbarrowed the wood to the truck.  This made it a little easier to load.  Hubby had to split most of the blocks just so we could lift them into the truck.  We worked on this tree for 2 days and still didn’t get it finished.  Hubby’s chain messed up on his saw so we had to quit until he gets it fixed.  We did school in the mornings and then after lunch we would go cut wood.  It was hard work getting the wood around the hill but we had a good time working together.  I told Hubby all this physical exercise was keeping us young (lol).


What is more fun than riding in the truck bed after a hard day of working.  God is good. We are getting ready to leave for Sunday night bible study.  We are studying in Exodus.  Tonight’s menu is sloppy joes, potato chips and dip, cole slaw and dessert (unknown at this time).   I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.

  1. Riding in the bed of a truck to go just about anywhere is fun! big smile The pictures you shared are lovely. Thank you for shraing them. We have been warmer this year than the past two or three years too. The last two years we had snow in November due to northern winds bringing storm systems down to us, this year the big storm came from the south instead; ergo, it was a warmer one and came at us from a completely different angle. Glad to see another family who lives and works together as well as has fun together. big smile Have a great start to your work week. Sincerely, Mommy of two growing blessings & so much more!


  2. Our weather here has been warm. Yesterday it was up near 80! Weird weather for this time of year. At this point, I can’t even imagine it snowing. Looks like you are getting a good wood supply. Wonderful that you are working together as a family.



  3. What nice sunshine to have while working outside. Wood cutting is a lot of work but so worth it. I love the heat from wood stoves.

    Have a wonderful day with your family.
