Welcome, Welcome!

I'd just like to send  a big welcome out to my new followers.  Thank you for visiting and I look forward to getting to know you.  I have a hard time getting to the computer some days, so my posting is somewhat spotty.  Today was a busy day.  Again we were offered free firewood.  This time it was on a job site and they needed the pile to be removed as soon as possible.  Well, in my house, no matter what you have planned or what you are in the middle of, if someone offers free firewood you drop everything and grab a chainsaw.  

So off we went to cut wood again. We met at 9am - much too late to beat the 90+ degree heat today.  We got a trailer load and my boss got a trailer load, and half the pile is gone.  So tomorrow we are meeting at 7:30am to finish the job.  I really love free wood.  I think it burns hotter :)

While we were gone the wind picked up to a frenzied pace and flattened all of the corn in our garden.  And if that wasn't bad enough, it knocked out the power too.  So rather than sit in the house, which was getting warmer by the minute, we took off for a 2 hour shopping spree at Home Depot.  I'm on furlough next week and my "project" this month is to clean, fill, sand, prime and paint the master bathroom.  But first Tim needs to replace the exhaust fan.  So, after the big shopping trip I think we have everything we need.  Or, everything I need, to be more precise. And, fortunately, the power was back on when we got home!

Thanks for stopping by.




  1. Free wood burns hotter. LOL, I love it. He-He. I too, need to get to Home Depot for a ceiling fan, after I re-did the living room, I never replaced the old one. Not this month, but hopefully before winter.

  2. Cutting and hauling wood is brutal in summer. I try ot hold off until early fall as much as I can. But, if someone offers you good firewood for free, you have to take advantage of it.
