I'm plum tuckered out......



No rest for the weary they say. Today was spent chopping and stacking firewood for the fall. On Saturday, John and the boys went out firewood hunting. They returned with 2 loads of firewood. Now, I didn't chop much, but I chopped my fair share. It's alot harder than I remember. John and I worked for about 2 hours. It was 100 degrees out today. I probably shouldn't have worked out in the heat, but, the firewood is for my benefit. The boys know how much the fire is such a comfort to me in the fall and winter.

Johnny had to re teach me how to sling an axe. I didn't do to bad, a couple of misses, but I did kind of get the hang of it. I'm very tired right now, my legs and arms feel wobbly. We stacked what is on the porch, half of it we chopped, the other half was cut up into logs by the guys yesterday.

Now, it's off to dinner and stitching!

I always cheated and used a chainsaw. But since it was most often just me cutting wood for cooking and water heating and warmth I had too!

That looks like really hard work but it must be nice to have an open fire.

You look so cute! I'm sure you will be sore today. Keep it up and just see how strong you will be when it's time to go back to school!
PS Have you heard anything yet?

I know how much work choppping wood is. I have never done it, but have watched DH do a lot of it. I, too, like a fire and find it comforting.
