Did you know...

the back of our long bed truck with sides on it will hold 471 pieces of stacked wood?
It's true.

No I don't have OCD, but when it's loud with the sound of chain saws grinding and the log splitter whining and there is no one to yack with somehow I ended up counting pieces of wood that I stacked.
Ridiculous I know, but there you have it.

We couldn't have asked for better weather to go cut wood. 
It was very mild for this time of year. 
Can't believe it's almost the end of November already.

Some friends of ours have a lot of land and had some of it logged.
The loggers only take the choice cuts and leave the rest behind.
Which enables us to go be the clean up crew and get free wood to burn.

Some of the logs were just ginormous.

The week pretty much passed just like that.
Go get wood, unload wood and repeat.
Not that we need any more wood for this year, but the Hubby likes to stock pile it when he can and I guess if it's free (which is all relative when you have to go get it) we might as well. 

In other news I got some new glasses ordered. 
They'll have some type of HD lenses in them that will/should eliminate the christmas tree light effect I now have when driving at night. 
Sure hate picking out new frames. 
Nothing ever looks good and I always think when I get the new ones, damn should have gotten that other pair I liked. 


YAY Friday it's finally!
I'm sleeping in tomorrow :)

You can come cut/load wood for us :). I'm not big on picking out new glasses either. The photo you have under where you state you can't believe it's almost the end of November.... LOVE!

When I run out of things to think about and or concentrate on, I find myself counting. I'd say that 471 is a pretty darn good load! (0:
I don't miss putting up firewood, and yet I do! If I were your neighbor, I'd lend a hand...I need the exercise! (0:
