Keeping Warm in the Winter

Since it is my turn to host the flue bug, I have been out of commission and helping the couch feel well used for several days now.  I hope that I can get up and out the door some day soon.  In the mean time, I thought I would share with you how we heat the house here at our farm.

Late summer we had a couple loads of wood delivered. It comes from Amish sawmills, and is the slabs that are left over after they cut their wood. This wood is sold for local farms to heat their homes

We stacked the wood, but the pile was getting way to far away for my liking. 
It really disappears.. quickly!

So, back we go to the piles...............

Make a couple quick loads in the pick-up truck. To cold to get the big machinery out!

Now we are all set again for a while.  These pics are two weeks old, from when we had a bit of a thaw. 
I am so grateful we got wood moved before all the snow moved in!


  1. Oh my, I'm jealous of that wood pile. We've had a heck of a time keeping enough wood here for the stove.

  2. That is a lot of wood! But I bet you do go through it quickly when it is so cold. Hope you get to feeling better soon!

  3. That is a lot of wood! I hope you are feeling nice and warm and it is helping you to feel better! Loved the recipes you posted earlier. Come join us this week on Foodie Friends Friday!

  4. I could use that wood right's been fireplace weather here for me in D.C. I hope you are feeling better. I hosted that flu....twice! It's not fun. Make yourself some fabulous cookies and some tea!
