Wednesday Vignette: woodpile

Anna at Flutter and Hum brings us weekly vignettes, and this week I chose something that sort of illustrated how I feel right now:

My wood pile. It's a project half-started (some of the wood is split), not yet finished (the wood isn't stacked), has been sitting around for a month or more, and there's no real urgency to complete it due to mild weather. It's still quite interesting though.


This is a pretty good analogy for all of my outdoor projects right now -- of which there are many.

(Jobs usually look better when you get into the middle of them, "up close" you might say...)

Glad that there's no urgency though, and hoping that I won't have to use a single stick of this wood this winter...

More vignettes at Flutter and Hum!

(Jobs usually look better when you get into the middle of them, "up close" you might say...) - haha, no one ever spoke a truer word! I have so many projects that benefit from close-ups - my house and garden in particular. ;) I especially love the last two photos - very beautiful. Happy Thanksgiving, Alan!

So is the wood a back-up heat source? I too hope you won't need that! Have a good Thanksgiving...

Anna: Happy Thanksgiving to you too!

Loree: Yes, it's for our wood stove. If the high temp for the day is 40ºF or above we can't use the stove -- makes it too hot inside! Happy Thanksgiving!

The last two shots are especially nice, showing the textures of the wood! Funny, a high of 40 here is cold and if it's clear, usually it means freezing temperatures at night. Hope you have a happy and warm Thanksgiving!

I, too, feel like this is a metaphor for my life. But, I threw my hands up this year and said to heck with it! I'll deal with it next year :) Happy Thanksgiving!
