Winter has decided to visit this year,
we don't have the mild conditions that we did last season
so it was time to prepare.
It's all about the wood.
Taylor, Queen of Mulch,
surveys the area from atop the pile.
We were fortunate enough to run into the highway
tree trimmers who liked nothing better
than to deposit trimmings at our place
rather than drive miles and miles to the
appointed drop off place.
This was almost two years ago and we let it sit
and break down until it would be ready to use
in the garden. You can see how the top is rough still.
Underneath, it is breaking down nicely and will be used
in the beds this season along with some of the
Free and no work.
Not that there isn't work to be done.
Tom's now able to get back to wood cutting,
something I'm concerned about with his being on
warfarin; however, he doesn't seem to have any
problems so we're good to cut.
A bit behind though.
The woodpile was getting pretty low.
This weekend he will be splitting what is too large
to simply cut.
We've had a fire in the wood burner since Mom arrived,
keeping the living room temperatures around 72.
It's a bit more comfortable while we had holiday visitors
who are not used to our normal 65!
Hope your holiday is happy, safe and warm!
