Getting Wood

We left the house at 7.15 AM to get a load of wood. After the logging companies are through they issue permits ($ 40.00) for a pickup load of the leftover wood. Of course you have to cut it yourself and the logging roads are pretty hard to travel. The wood lot is a good distance from where we live but we go just the same with our good old wood truck. It's certainly not a pretty truck but suits it's purpose very well; 4-wheel drive and rugged ☺
The weather was absolutely perfect for that task. Cliff was wearing his black coveralls but they came off very soon. I helped pack the wood and pile it in the truck but most of the work fell to Cliff.

This wood intrigues me. I wonder how the markings come about?

We came home at noon and after making lunch I had a snooze on the couch while Cliff unloaded the truck. Shortly after just as I was nodding off I had a phone call from a neighbour. I did not want to go back to sleep so instead I made a batch of cookies, my favourite ginger mounds. I'm not going to tell you how many I ate already ☺
Tomorrow is the last day before the woods close until September but since it is Mother's Day we won't go again (I hope).
That's it for today.
Good night everybody ☺

I don't know about you, but I can guess how many cookies I would eat fresh out of the oven! Mmmmmmmm.

That looks like a very good way to get wood.

We can relate! I don't now how many times we went out to a favorite site where we could pay nominal fee and use our chain saw to get fire wood! Looks like you picked a good day for it!
