Wood

An almost empty wood pile.  Remember how this looked last fall.  I would show you the picture but all my old pictures are still sleeping on my computer, which is “resting” for a while.  Anyway, last fall this shed had 7 rows deep of wood and 2 rows on each side.  All gone.  We used almost all of the wood last winter.  Saturday, we all worked on the wood pile.  George and I used the splitter and the girls stacked it up.

This is what the pile looked like.  We have about 1/3 of it split and stacked in the building-three rows deep.  We want to have more wood this winter than we had last winter.  Just in case, it is another hard winter.  It is better to be prepared.   I want to take a moment to complement my girls.  They worked very hard Saturday and did an excellent job stacking the wood.  Thank you, Julie and Grace.

Another picture I know Jess will love.  The girls found this lunar moth on the building the other day.  Very pretty.  They enjoy finding pictures for me to use.  Rather chilly here today.  Upper 40’s for the temperature. Lots of rain.  We had a really hard rain last night while we were at church.  We do our Sunday night study in the basement.  Water started coming in through the basement door.  We had to stop our study and get busy-quick.  The outside drain could not handle all the water.  Thanks to mops, a shop vac, and a sump pump we finally got it all dried out.  I’m just glad it happened while we were there.  It would not have been fun to discover all that water on Wednesday night.  Imagine what damage it could have done.  God is good.  Of course, after all that hard work, the food tasted extra good.  Time for piano lessons.  Take care and God bless.
