Gathering wood and life lessons...
Fortunately we had a brief reprieve from the rain so by the time we actually arrived in the park, it was cold but dry. Yeah!
I should mention that cutting wood is one of Craig's favorite things to do. He is literally in heaven with his chainsaw, chain oil, file for sharpening, and freshly felled wood just waiting to be sawed up. I suppose I could send Craig out to saw up the wood by himself. But I happen to be a firm believer that working physically together as a team is a wonderful way to strengthen your relationship - the planning for and execution of something as basic as getting firewood together is something you look back on when you are perched in front of a cosy fire, with a hot cuppa tea and your sweetie beside you. "We did that together." you think as you cuddle up and watch the fire flicker.
