Yesterday, Mark and I worked on processing some firewood. I am not sure, but I think we split and I stacked at least five facecords of firewood. There is little wood left to process and the woodshed is going to be a bit more full than usual. This is such a good feeling!
After working with firewood for a few hours, I was so famished!!! I hurried into the house and made a pizza crust. I worked a little longer and put the pizza together and in the oven. After eating, I felt like I could barely move! It was not from overeating, but my whole body felt like the Tin Man on the Wizard of Oz! I was so stiff. And sore! I rested for awhile as I also had a terrible headache. After getting up, I felt better, so I took my ATV for a ride in the woods. The kids have been working on clearing one of the new trails and it is awesome!
When I came back, I drove down near a Hickory tree and was so thrilled to find nuts all over the ground. I picked for several minutes, then took my goodies in the house. Just before dark, I went out once again, and found many more nuts had fallen in the brisk winds! I hurriedly picked up the nuts as a chipmunk sat nearby, scolding me all the while!
I love the woods. And I love getting all those lovely nuts! (Yes, the nut didn’t fall too far from the tree!!!)
