I’m never in a hurry.
We’re having another rather wonderful day here by the bog. The sun is shining, the breeze is breezing and it’s just enough warm. Perhaps the humidity is a bit high but not so much that it feels awful. We went out for our walk just as the sun rose and I had hoped for fog since they had predicted it but no such luck I’m afraid. But it was cool and fairly fly free so I’m happy anyway. I couldn’t hear a single bird sing, just the all year round tweeting and I don’t count that as singing, it’s more like small talk to be honest.
I’m not the one doing things in a hurry when I have things to do and my plans are often five-year plans 🙂 Today however it almost seemed like I was in a hurry since I finally picked away all those tree trunks and branches from the plum tree, apple tree and lilacs I cut down two years ago 🙂 or is it three? I had however placed every little bit in a nice woodpile so it didn’t look bad. But I had placed it all on the gravel path that goes around one side of my cottage. I really don’t care about the gravel path but it was a bit hard to mow the lawn around the pile. Most of the smaller pieces had dried out really well but the bigger ones was still heavy of water. It’s my own fault since I never removed the bark from those trunks, it’s a must if one want big pieces to dry up at all.
I piled it all in my wood shed and wondered if I should chop it up today but I have big windows standing there in the wood shed and sometimes those wood logs jump away with surprising speed and always in to something that can break 🙂 So I’ll leave that to another day. Now I have firewood for at least five or six days 🙂 It’s amazing that two big trees and lots of lilacs don’t give more firewood, I mean the trees were rather big to be honest. Well, lots of it was chopped up to wood chips and placed around the pond to be honest. I need to buy a new wood chipper till next time because the one I have was starting to give up last time I used it 🙂
The dogs are sleeping and I’m thinking of joining them in a nap, that would be my second for the day 🙂 Still, I have absolutely no problems falling asleep in the evening at the same time I always do. But first I’ll have a pot of tea and some ic cream.
Have a great day!
Not much space left here now, below four percent now, will most likely last a week. But here’s the address to my new place: The cottage by the Crane lake, life goes on. (http://thecottagebythecranelakethree.wordpress.com)
