Firewood for Sale

 Our neighbors down the road have been cutting up trees that fell during one of last year’s storms. It is so cold that they are selling lots. I stopped by to ask if I could buy a little bit to use in our fire pit down by the creek where we sit at night and roast marshmallows with Eloise when they come for a visit. They were happy to let me have some, and about 10 minutes later they brought it up to the house and stacked it for me....15.00. Now that a GOOD NEIGHBOR!

Before the Snow


After the Snow
This is a repost...I just wanted to show my wee woodpile before and after the snow.

  1. When my SIL had to cut down trees in her yard, she made a table from the wood. I had a friend turn wood from our downed tree into salad bowls and candle sticks.

  2. How nice to have this little woodpile for your marshmallow roasts! We have those too at our cabin, and so much fun!

  3. Hi Genie, I am back to answer your question about the murals at the garden. They were in the conservatory. I don't remember them the last time I was there and maybe they are new.

  5. You got a good deal for that amount of wood even if you had to haul it yourself which you did not.

  8. Those are nice neighbors. That is a pretty good stack for $15. Plus they delivered it.

  11. I remember being thankful for such a woodpile, though bigger, for a time when we lived in the country and had no power for two weeks.

  12. That is a good deal and a good neighbor! The fact that they delivered and stacked it for you, makes them even nicer.

  13. Mmm ... a fire sounds so cozy.... lovely that your neighbors stacked the wood for you and that seems like a good price even without that. When we lived in Oregon (in our other life, before we sold out) we used to go to BLM land to cut wood, then home to stack it, then bring it into the house, then make the fire. He who cuts his own wood is warmed four or five times ;>)

  15. The snow certainly clings closely to the wood. What a wonderful neighbour to have around.
