  • I thought we would be set on the firewood front this winter because of all the downed trees and limbs from last year’s storms. We have a huge pile of wood out by the barn that we are literally chipping away at with the splitter. 

    I love splitting wood; it is great exercise and manages to shed just about any frustration that may be lingering from the day. 

    But not all wood is created equal if you plan to use it for warmth in the fireplace.

  • ominately homemade holiday.

    My friend Pernilla suggested that all gifts should be ones that can “be used up” for a good purpose. So, something one could eat, use to cook with, to bathe with; perhaps something we could decorate with and when finished it would be a good addition to the compost pile? 

    I have planned ahead a bit: this summer when I was canning and processing things from the garden, I did extra so I could give them as heartfelt thanks to friends during the holidays.
