At the family house on Georgen Bay, they put the wood pile on the path to the outhouse. whoever has to go, has to bring back an armful of logs. my great uncle sad that his dad put it there because "the women go more" and that way thy end up bringing in most of the wood :-P

happy stacking! i wish it was me, but i have no fireplace.

One of the reasons we moved out of our house was because the fireplace was one of those you lite by turning on the switchplate. I called it our "light bulb" fire. I couldn't stand that thing. What's the point? No woodsmoke smell. No cracklin'. No tending the fire.
No smoldering coals left in the morning. No chimney smoke. I just could not beleive how much joy I was missing out of..because of no real fireplace. Problem Solved. We moved outa there..and I have 2 Vermont Casting woodstoves. My favorite thing in this cottage.
Happy Woodsmoke !

It's that time again! I won't need it for another 2 months, hopefully, but I should at least place the order! Happy sunday.

Ah what a lovely sight! We run our woodburner 24/7 here once its needed so wood is a big priority. We are lucky to get most of it for free & now have 1 & 1/2 stacked up,the years worth is to use & the 1/2 is a getting ahead to season for the next year lol! Woodstores are NEVER! big enough hahah.

Woodsmoke is possibly the most delightful scent there is.I have an elderly neighbour & shes had a fire in her cottage almost every evening for over 40 years,I walk in there & I breathe in deep.Its such a comforting scent.When she gives me things(shes a darling x) they have the scent on them,a book with a faint whiff of woodsmoke is something that makes a slow soft smile spread across my face :o)

I agree with the comments by Farmhouse Kitchen,having a fire/woodburner is like having another person to look after,its a living thing & fills a home with peace & simple joy

I stacked a quarter of it, and my arm is black and blue!

I can't believe it's time for anyone to think about firewood. Still over 100 here. Waaah! :(

The only thing more satisfying than gazing upon the winter preparation that is a newly stacked cord of wood is the joy the fire brings on a cold winters' night.

we started cutting on Thursday - way behind where we'd like to be and Thursday cut was garbage wood anyhow (done as a favour to my Dad getting a fallen pine off his neighbours lawn) but the need for wood is in the air here somehow ;)

Firewood warms you twice,once when you cut/stack it then when you have a cozy fire to sit by.

It looks like work, but I don't usually mind, knowing what I'll get out of it later! It is very steamy here today- rained a lot in the night and now very hot. I'd probably find an excuse to wait another day! I've been in the car most of my day picking one kid up from one camp and taking another to a camp in the opposite direction (of course). I'm ready for a walk to take out the kinks or a good sit with my book. But I guess if I saw that pile of wood staring at me, I might be able to start up with some stacking!!
How many loads will it take you for a winter? Do you do it all before winter, or need to restock during snow season?

We had our green wood delivered in February, which was great for warming us up while tossin' and stackin'
