We don't even have our wood split and ready to go yet .... how will we ever keep warm if that "snow" business starts before its designated Season of Winter? Oh I guess I would have to use that thing on the wall called a thermostat and turn on the high efficiency propane furnace we had purchased from and had installed by Fast Freddy two years ago, and which has only been used a couple of times in the past two years..... lol, I prefer the heat from our woodstoves quite personally, however it is nice to know there is back up if ever need be.
I have no problem layering my clothes either, so be it if it gets too cold before we have our wood split, brought in and piled. It has only been sitting there for the past year in the field behind the house all chunked and ready to go, but then there is finding the time in our busy schedules this past Summer to get to it. The joys of having your own 30 acres of bush is that it is conveniently accessible, but there is that little business of finding the time to get at it. The pressure of cooler weather is on, so maybe it will be an upcoming project very shortly.
On going through my Facebook page, at some point yesterday, I came upon a status posted by one of my friends there that caught my eye....
One bushel yielded 14 Quarts of stewed tomatoes, a handful for eating purposes, a small thermos for Rob's supper, with only about 10 ended up in the compost, $5.00 well invested I would say.
The rest of my yesterday, after I cleaned up from the tomato mess, was spent not doing too much of anything. I was ready for my bed at 7:00 p.m., but between the phone calls and Bandit and Lexus needing to be taken out, that didn't happen.
I had best be getting on with checking out the weather for the day ahead, as I need to get my day "kick started" here very shortly.....
Okay that weather forecast isn't going to effect the inside things I would like to accomplish today.
Here I go running forward into a new day ahead, however I had best be getting dressed before I run too far into it, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
