1,120 Pieces

WoodpileEveryone needs to do the occasional once a season thing just to unwind, to remove the tension, to decompress.

Early this morning my wife and I stacked the four cords of wood that were delivered earlier this week; the fireplace is now keeping the house toasty, and the furnace has not – will not – go on for days to come.

For the price of the wood ($75 a face cord), the effort to stack it and the need to regularly tend the fire, we will save upwards of $700 in winter fuel bills, possibly more. I got two hours of fresh air and exercise and had a nice time with my wife to boot.

A great deal all around.
