Today was the last day of firewood gathering for us for the season. We went back to the area we got wood last weekend. There was a new layer of snow on the ground. Not much, only an inch or so, but plenty to delight LLSS. While Mike cut rounds and I carried them to the edge of the hill for rolling, Clare stooped and scooped, stomped and tromped, tasted and touched. Our tree was in a lovely, sloping area. Not too steep, not a lot of debris.
Between the bark and the wood, we found many insects and arachnids. Tons of little green winged things. Sometimes more than 100 per round.
Clare is getting pretty excited about her trip to Grandma and Grandpa's for Thanksgiving. We have started the COUNTDOWN!
