We have been chopping firewood these past few days--definitely a recommended activity when it is over 85 degrees. (Guess who has become quite the chainsaw whiz! Dont hold your breath for any of those bears or eagles or mermaids, though. The whiz specializes in cutting kindling.) Our friends Stosh and Jane are building an ambitious fence, and have generously allowed us to cut up a few of the felled trees. As you can see in the background of the picture in the previous post, we have quite a bit of elm and ash to fire our kiln and keep us warm this winter. I am quite excited by the prospect of warming my toes before a crackling fire during a Wisconsin blizzard!
