Autumn 2009: The Burning Bush

Autumn is in full swing here.  We are having a hard time believing that winter is fast approaching.  We are not ready.   

We’re still learning all the important seasonal things your supposed to do when living in the country.  One of the big important ones is gathering wood well before winter arrives.  We didn’t chop enough firewood last year…and this year we are way behind on the wood gathering task.  We have already fired up the wood stove a couple of times.  Wood heat radiates into the house with a kind of “cozy” heat that is perfect for those cold autumn and winter nights.  It calls for the family to gather round for story time with fuzzy blankets, hot chamomile tea and feet pajamas.
