Getting Ready For Winter

We had 2 cubic metres of logs delivered a couple of weeks ago and now they are stacked neatly in our wood shed.

Yesterday I chopped lots of kindling wood too so we are all set now for when the weather gets cooler. Not quite there yet but I expect it will start to get chilly at nights in a couple of weeks and we get to the end of autumn.
looks like good hardwood :)

Looks good .. always nice to see a nicely stacked woodpile.. Wehave had a couple of fires already .. I think FG was spoiling me .. It is satisfying chopping kindling .. though when I do it I often think of my Mum .. when I was small I can remember her coming in the house clutching her hand in her apron.. saying I think I need a plaster ... she pulled out her hand and there was her finger just dangling by a very small 'thread'... some handy work by the Drs and she got to keep her finger ...

that looks so neat!

Bet that makes you feel good!!

@julzmaioro Oh dear. I have to admit I have a few band aids on my legs and arms where the wood flew through the air after I chopped it and it skinned my legs etc. but I haven't had any serious injuries. I have to take daily aspirin so I bleed easily, but I don't think we are at the transfusion stage yet.

Such a wonderful sight - should see you through the coming winter . Love the many shapes , textures and colour tones - just like a jig-saw !
April 20th, 2020  
Wonderful soft tones and textures Babs looks like you are well prepared for winter:)

So satisfying to have all this sorted and even kindling ready to go! Makes for a lovely image.

They make a nice image - and promise some lovely evenings...

You seem to be well prepared for a cold winter. Better, if you are planning to stay inside most of the time.
April 20th, 2020  
You're well prepared!
April 20th, 2020  
ready for the winter !
April 20th, 2020  
So well prepared Babs......a great stack here...Still high 20's temps here but, a little cooler at night. When winter hits we will really feel it.
April 20th, 2020  
Great to be prepared Babs!

Good to see you're ready for a cold winter!
April 20th, 2020  
a great pattern and texture that will keep you snuggly warm!

I do love a woodstore! Great de-stresser being out there with the axe chopping wood too. I like all the different shades of colour
April 20th, 2020  
The satisfaction of all that hard work is an amazing picture at the end. Great shot.
April 20th, 2020  
Lots of great shapes and textures.
April 20th, 2020  
Just like the scouts, always prepared. We have 1,000 pieces (yes you buy them by piece here) just waiting to keep us warm.
April 20th, 2020  
All set up now then!
April 20th, 2020  
Great textures and tones

You have been busy. Always good to feel prepared for the cooler months.

I used to love chopping kindling, Harry does it now he’s not busy on the farm. Lovely pile of wood,,,very satisfying! We are still having a fire every night as it’s goes quite chilly later.
April 20th, 2020  
Our opposite seasons always make for interesting pictures from you.
April 20th, 2020  
See you are prepare for the winter.

@annied It is hardwood and perfect for burning.



@koalagardens @777margo @beryl @pcoulson @dide @robz @inthecloud5 @cocobella @jacqbb @gijsje @pusspup @sangwann @pattyblue @mittens @ludwigsdiana @angelar @carolmw @flowerfairyann @happypat @tunia @pyrrhula We are all set for winter now. It is beginning to get cool at night now but not cool enough to light the fire yet. I reckon it will only be a couple of weeks before we have the fire lit at night.
Luckily it doesn't get cold enough in winter to have the fire lit all day. I think only about 5 or 6 days during the whole of winter we have to light the fire during the day.



@happysnaps Still in the 20s here too, but beginning to get cooler at night now.

@casablanca Yes it is satisfying chopping the kindling with an axe. Most of our big logs are the right size to fit in the woodburner but a few of the delivered logs need chopping with the chainsaw and splitting in the log splitter. We are very well prepared.

Great chopping and texture!
We are done with wood............gas all the way now!

And our woodpile is on the wane. Jeff will be looking to bring next year's lot in so it can dry out over the summer as soon as the quarantine ends.

Great textures.
