While I was home for Thanksgiving, my dad was working his way through a big pile of logs. The forest on my parents property not only provides hours of enjoyment & family togetherness, but also heat for the winter months.
The task is a big one - but the more wood piled up, the less they have to rely on the electric furnace, which is very cost effective in the long run.
There's also nothing quite as comforting as the smell & crackle of a wood fire to ward off the chill. Many happy memories were made around the hot wood stove nestled in the corner of my parents kitchen... Almost makes me look forward to winter!
