Since the first part of July the husband as been working to amass enough firewood to get us through the winter. This means long days in the forest and getting up at 4:30 am to chop wood for a while before he goes to work.
He also has been cruising Craigslist looking for a furnace. Not that he's lazy, but flipping a switch is so much easier than gathering firewood.
So far, this is what he's accumulated:
I'm rather impressed by the pile, as are the girls. He's rather proud of it, actually. And all that time he's spent gathering it I believe that he's had plenty of time to think about a furnace. This week he announced that if he sold it all, he would probably have enough money to buy and install a furnace.
So, you may be looking at our furnace fund. We'll see.
