Today we took the kids and my mum on a picnic, in the rain, to a local state forest. It was a lovely outing and a very yum collection of food!
Of course, we had an ulterior motive ;-) – we were there to collect fire wood – legally of course! We printed off the firewood collection map and set out on our adventure – and we were all surprised at how easily we found our trailer-load of wood – yay!
Michael was on the chain saw while the rest of us gathered and we now have about half of what we think we will use next winter – so this has the whole summer to dry out. And yes, we will stack it properly – just as soon as Michael builds the wood shed.
