Firewood Stack

Been very busy since my last (first) post! We use mostly firewood to heat our home during the winter & it's a LOT of work. But, it's fun, too. My dh cuts the tree down - hopefully it falls where we want it. If not, it's even more work! Then, he clears off some branches & cuts from the top down to the base. That way, I can start hauling pieces back to the truck while he continues to cut. I'm kind of slow & steady & eventually he catches up to me. I stack smaller pieces by the truck until we have it all there to load. Take a look at my stack:

What's funny isn't how I stacked it (easier to load into truck) - it's that my dh said - "look - flying geese!"

I guess quilting just seeps into your soul & that's a good thing :)


Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to ME & my BLOG! I've read most of (well, some of) "Blogging for Dummies" & it's time to put pen to paper - or keys to screen. I was waiting for the perfect moment of inspiration to write this first entry, because it's a lot of pressure to be first! But, when has anything ever been done perfectly the first time?? When has anything been done perfectly at all?? I've decided to settle for doing my best - just like mom always asked. At first I thought that meant she wanted me to be the best. And, sometimes I was. But, most often, I wasn't. And, that was perfect enough for mom.
