|Welcome to winter!|
In good news, this didn't stop me from building a fire this weekend. I also learned that I really stink at chopping wood, namely because newsflash: it's hard. It's even harder when the wood was apparently pretty wet and then froze. And you have no upper body strength. Apparently all these years I've been using my arms and back like they are labeled "For Decorative Purposes Only". But I managed to get enough to build a roaring fire on Saturday:
|That would be an Arctic Rhino Coffee Porter on the coffee table.|
So there are a few lessons here: 1) I don't really know what I'm doing with building this woodshed. My new plan is to have Heidi and Dan come down from Fairbanks and help me. Or have Dan build it. But I haven't asked them yet, so it's a secret. Shhh. 2) I need to work out more. 3) This winter, I think it's going to be wood from Fred Meyers for the win!
