We finally (finally, finally, FINALLY!) got started putting up our wood supply for next winter.
Geesh, I didn't think we were ever going to get at it.
We like to have both of our wood sheds full to the brim by the end of April each year. Sure didn't happen this year . . . mainly because the month of April was too wet, and there was still too much snow on the ground to make it safe for wood working.
Then at the end of April we both succumbed to those ugly-bugly germs that took us out of commission for three weeks.
Then it was "as soon as I get the garden in" or sixty-five other things that kept us from starting on our wood supply.
But yesterday we finally made a start at it and, "the good lord willin' and the creek don't rise," we plan on staying with it the majority of our waking hours all the rest of this week.
The above shows the very back of the smaller of our wood sheds starting to fill with cut and split wood, but it's a start. As hubby is fond of saying, "It's better'n money in the bank." Hopefully, we'll be making many more deposits (pun intented) in the very near future!
