This week has fortunately not been as eventful as last week (the Man hasn't tried to burn the house down!). However, we had wheelbarrow woes. The tube in the wheelbarrow tire got a hole. Man bought a replacement one, had to go to the neighbours to blow it up because he couldn't find a pump, but it also had a hole. The Man bought a new tube and found a pump and it worked, but then he decided the whole tire should be replaced. 2 stores later, a tire was found. For reasons the Lady doesn't understand, this tire then didn't fit easily on the piece to attach it to the wheelbarrow. Man went to 2 hardware stores to find someone to help him force it on. Finally after several weeks the wheelbarrow was ready to go!
This time of year we get 4 cords to use to help heat the house on evenings and weekends. Lady curses it every year. The neighbours are getting 10 cords this year as they are expecting baby 3 in December and someone will be home all day, so they can use the fire as their primary heating source. Lady can't imagine piling that much wood!
We spent a lot of the weekend hauling wood. Lady and Man think we have one more day left. Hopefully we will get one nice day next weekend (Thanksgiving weekend) to finish it up.
Here is the pile when about half the wood had been piled. It starts at the side of the house. The Man loads it into the wheelbarrow.
Here is the mischief wheelbarrow. The Man brings it around the house and dumps it in the second garage where the Lady stacks it.
Here is the pile in progress. This garage is also known as our mouse Air BnB as this is where we have caught the most mice (11 to date). It is right off the living room so getting the wood for the fireplace is easy!
Here is Phod and Precious supervising the peeps. Phod kept bringing Precious to Lady to throw. It made the job more interesting.
Here is Hailey watching over the work. She loved being in the sun, eating grass and digging!
