Last year, when Zac opened up the circle by taking out a bunch of trees, he left quite a pile of hardwood logs: yellow birch, black birch, maybe some maple and birch. It was probably about two cords. So they cut all that up and split the larger pieces, then hauled it up to the house. Meanwhile, Eliza and Ellen moved a stack from last year's wood to over by the door to be burned this year. Now we can stack the pile of newly cut wood into the space vacated by that move and we'll burn that next year. A good feeling!

A wonderful gift
Yesterday, six folks from the Dummerston Church came to our house and spent the morning cutting, splitting, hauling and stacking wood. They came because they knew I've been having trouble with shoulder pain and wondering how I was going to do all that. And probably just to show love and concern in our time of loss. It was a wonderful gift!
