This past week we saw our wood pile dwindle to nothing. With great optimism I hoped that spring would suddenly arrive and we wouldn’t have to get more wood. Reality check: winter is still here. Thankfully we did have a couple days of sunny weather to keep our house warm before our next load of wood arrived. It is our first winter in this house and we are still trying to figure out how much wood we need to heat it. So far, we’ve used three cords of wood, mostly pine, larch and fir.
Now that our wood pile is replenished I am enjoying the warmth of the fire once again. We sit beside the wood stove and warm our toes. When the days are cool and rainy we stay close to the fire and spend more time reading and crafting. My children set up a library on the floor while I knit a row on Teddy sweater, read the spring edition of Rhythm of the Home and listen to new music by Lewis Watson.
