Loosened from the mud, I find myself floating in a world of possibility.

So can you.

more chopped wood

It is going to take quite a while to finish item #57 on my Lotus List, chopping a cord of wood. This is last attempt but I forgot to take a photo of the full amount before lighting the fire. I was feeling mighty proud considering it is oak which tends to be harder to split. But the load that I chopped only lasted about any hour or so. The experience made me realize how grateful I am that we don't have to depend on wood for heat throughout the entire winter. Can you imagine how much wood needs to be chopped? Of course, we'd probably be burning more efficiently with a wood stove, but still! That's a lot of wood (needed for winter, I mean, not what I chopped).
