WE FINISHED!!!!—-Monday, September 19, 2016

wood-pile-3WE FINISHED!  Terry and I are dancing with joy….and resting!

wood-pile-2Late Saturday evening Terry and I brought home the last two loads.  Evan was done with his on Thursday, but we had the huge, gigantic trees left.  Four of them.  And to clean up the area.  See those monsters stacked on each other?  There are several stacks around and some tossed into the pile.

It took Terry and I, together-one of us on each side, to lift most of those monsters up and into the truck, then to fling them off.

wood-pile-1But we are done!

DONE!  DONE!!!!!

And I can proudly say I stacked 90% of this wood into our truck, AND into Evan’s truck.

Now we can rest assured the house will be warm and toasty come winter!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,


P.S.  We have decided we are NOT going to do wood this way ever again.  Ever.  Period.

  1. Knock on wood, you might say!! That is soo nice knowing you can sit down and enjoy the reward of once efforts. For my own part I look out of the window and see that the appletrees once more have delivered the lawn filled with fallen apples, over again! Like Sisyfos.
    Please give Boomer and extra pat on the head, I’m sure he helped out a lot!!

  2. Good for you! Always nice to put the hard job behind you and now you’ll be able to enjoy the warmth of the stove. Once it’s split. And stacked. And hauled in. No rest for the weary, eh.
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. No better feeling than a winter’s worth of hay in the barn and wood in the shed! We’re set on both counts but if and when we get too old to do wood I believe I’d opt for a pellet stove/furnace.

    • It is. But the time has come to do something different. It seems like this year Terry and I have noticed lots of those realizations—little things that used to not take so much effort are now actually hard.
