Winter has such an overriding presence for me that as soon as one winter is over, I immediately start working on gathering firewood for the winter to come. You can see how much firewood I have cut and split already. Luckily, despite my worries during last winter’s cold snaps, I did have some firewood left over, so that I didn’t have to start from scratch on my firewood supply for next year. It would be nice to get more, but now other things, like the garden, are demanding my attention.
As I age, all of the work requirements of keeping up the maintenance of our place becomes more and more difficult, but hopefully these old bones I can keep muddling through.
