“chop your own wood, and it will warm you twice”
~ Henry Ford

fun with words/my thoughts for today

a pile of wood!

We had a cord of wood delivered today! Makes me happy! This should last us a while… as we were down to the last we had, I can rest a little easier knowing we will be warm a little longer! Plus, I’m going to have two dead trees felled/cut down here soon. The guys who delivered the wood can do it at a reasonable price.

Before enlightenment:
chop wood, carry water
After enlightenment:
chop wood, carry water

May free firewood always be available
no chop chop

Most of the wood we use for the wood stove is free, coming off my property or my boyfriend’s work buddies, but he’s been really busy working on roofs so he hasn’t had a chance to get any. Besides the dead standing on my property, we’ve almost exhausted what I have. Almost, not quite.
Need to keep a good, healthy ecosystem! Which I have. The only thing I’m really missing is a good water supply! But that’s another post…
Can’t let things get to be a fire hazard either…

To everything there is a purpose

good and hot
toasty warm

Standing dead: or dead standing, are trees that are dead but haven’t fallen to the ground yet. Often times they are called “snags” (forestsociety.org). I’d prefer to leave some standing dead or dead standing trees, as they provide food and shelter for wildlife. But, at the same time, I need fire wood! So, sometimes, the trees need to be thinned out. (Mother Nature helps sometimes!) The two trees I’m going to have felled are huge, black gum trees. They keep dropping limbs, and I’m scared they could come crashing down on us when we’re walking around or doing yard work. So, they need to come down. And to be honest, I’m surprised they haven’t come down yet.

Not all the trees in the forest make good firewood. - Sudanese proverb

Not all the trees in the forest make good firewood.

~ Sudanese Proverb

While looking at the forest society website, I didn’t realize that a dying tree goes through certain stages before collapsing. But it makes sense… I’ll have to do another blog on just that and the critters that benefit from each stage. I can tell you, that just observing these trees from time to time, I have noticed all kinds of things – from fungi, to woodpeckers, and bugs. Which is what dead wood provides, or provides for.

“Memories are like firewood
to be used in cold times.”

~ AnirbaN

Well, my brain is at a standstill and I can’t really find anything on the net to inspire me. So I will leave you with this…

“A man may plant a tree for many reasons.
Perhaps he likes trees.
Perhaps he wants shelter.
Or perhaps he knows that someday
he may need the firewood.”

~ Joanne Harris

(for every tree I cut down, I replace it with another)

hope you have a great day, night or evening
where you may be!
thanks for stopping by!!
