The truck is backed in, the hoist put up and the tailgate dropped open so that makes for easy access.The photo shows what we see standing in the shed behind the truck. You just reach out and grab the wood, turn and stack it in neat rows.
As we empty the deck the hoist is raised further so the wood rolls down towards us. ( look out ) This year we have gum; cherry and some port wine magnolia ( never had that before - I wonder if it will smell nice like it's flowers? )
Tomorrow we will do another load then another load till the shed is completely full.We use heaps as we have the fire going all winter. There was a little left over from last year too as we were away for 6 weeks.
But there is no hurry as you can see in this photo the fire has disappeared.
It is still away at the metal doctors having some repairs.
Today I have also been making bread.
I sat across the bench and sewed; that way I can look right into the oven.
I am pleased with the dark maroon borders I have attached next on my quilt. Then will come some mid green ones. So just a little progress there. I can't believe how well it is all coming together.
* It is still fine and windy here. ( 26 degrees yesterday )( sorry Isabelle ) My washing was dry in an hour and a half.
* Kiwis there is a good deal on petrol ( 25 cents off ) at NW if you spend $150 this weekend. (The opposition may well match that - they sometimes do.)
* We have some outings planned. Easter Saturday is now a tradition for us ; must go to the Used Book Sale. There is also a Quilt Exhibition on I want to see.
* walnut tally = 680
Wishing you All a Happy Safe Easter weekend.
I am sending Meg an extra Greeting. Stay strong my friend.
