Stacking Wood

There aren't enough days in the weekend. ~Rod Schmidt

I'm flat out exhausted. Yesterday we spent just over four hours moving and stacking wood. We took down trees at SILs last year and stacked the logs in our back yard. Now, DH is hand-splitting them with a maul, and I load them in the mower's trailer then haul them to our driveway, dump and stack (with DD's help). Lather, rinse, repeat. We got about 1/4 of the wood done yesterday and DH would like to do as much today.


Today is a junior handler competition. I don't know if we're eligible (the form asks for a member ID) and DD waffled back and forth on whether she wanted to compete. She decided LAST NIGHT that she'd like to, so if I have the energy, and I'm ready in a couple hours, we're going to drive there and see if we can sign up.

So ... I suppose I'll have a pile of wood to move later today instead.

And somewhere in there I have to build the LASR/WC/Aurora website for next week.

Um. Okay.


You Are Peanut Butter Patties / Tagalongs

You are creative and artistic. When you think, you tend to think big.

You go for the drama. You love excitement and passion... even if it gets you in trouble.

You are intense and a little self centered. You can be quite full of yourself (but not without reason).

You tend to be very indulgent. If you feel like having something, you go ahead and treat yourself.

LOVE Tagalongs... but the answers are only about 50/50...

Maybe Santa will bring you a log splitter someday. That's a lot of logs to split since that's your main source of heat.

I was going to ask if they have a machine that could split logs, but I see Maria has mentioned it.

Good luck at the competition today.

You Are Peanut Butter Sandwiches / Do-si-dos

You are easy going and naturally happy. You don't need a lot to make you smile.

You genuinely care about people and are a great friend. You're always doing your best to make the world a better place.

Even though there isn't an immature bone in your body, you still are like a big kid sometimes.

Why make life complicated when the best parts are actually quite simple? You enjoy the small joys of life.

It's 80% accurate.

Have a good Sunday.

Whew! And you say I have busy days. I hope the competition went well! And that you find time to fit everything in. How's your knee?

My quiz results were the same as Dru's. Pretty accurate, actually.

I hope you have had a lovely day!
