My husband and I were back on Lopez Island for a few days. We had garden tasks laid out for us, left over from the tree cuttings a month ago. First in line were multiple large piles of chips that needed to be moved by wheelbarrow and spread in the woods and the rhody beds as well as many large logs to be cut into rounds and moved to the wood shed. Jeff and I spent the better part of Saturday and some of Sunday working outside. It felt good to use my muscles for useful work - rather than merely lifting weights at my Y. And the rewards were many: great mulch in the garden and woods; lots of stacked firewood; tired muscles and a good night's sleep. The amount of wood we ended up with is impressive – since we only use our wood stove as an auxiliary heat source, our new supply, when coupled with the firewood we already have, will likely last us many years.
