Tom was busy on his days off last week...cutting, splitting, and stacking our oak woodpile. I helped a little - a VERY little - with the stacking. I had lots to do inside, but the sky and sunshine called me - it was just too pretty to stay indoors.
The first fire of the season...Tom designed the house and the position of our wood-burning stove just right - all we need is this stove to keep the house toasty warm (sometimes sweatin' hot!) We haven't used the house heater in two or three winters. Maybe it wouldn't be enough farther north, but for us, it's perfect.
