a good day to get away

taking my chainsaw and trailer
right smack in the middle of this expanse
to cut some iron wood
(cercocarpus ledifolius )for my woodstove
so i will be warm this winter
going alone. Just me and the saw...
and God, because he lives out there.

---------update --------
saturday was also a good day ( aka: no work)
so I made two more trips, my front yard is looking like a BIG woodpile, I feel warmer already, but it could be too much sun.

ps. i would like to thank my saw, it performed well, and my beloved, who understands my need for this machine.Posted by Picasa

Yeah, be careful. If you don't show back by sundown, Michele will convert her action to a weekend search party.

Looks like a great place to gather what you need and even relax maybe.

Yes, be careful with that saw, especially if you are out there alone. Michele sent me tonight.

My neighbor was out in our woods with a chain saw this morning, cutting down something big. I don't even know what.
