We chain ganged the family to help us haul our fire wood into the yard.
The truck dumped a ton of olive wood ready cut into pieces just right for the stove. After our olive trees were 'ravaged' for their timber and Vaso's chickens were 'rustled' we decided we had better get this inside the yard as soon as possible. Such a pity that life is changing here and we can't trust our fellow islanders
Stacking the wood at the rear of the house. That trolley had to be pushed through our living room but I wasn't complaining. The girls even gave the carpets a vaccum before they left
Bottoms up and down to work
Jamie throws the wood into the front yard
Half of it 'we' (they) stacked in the front and half was carted to the back yard
A rising pile
Those big blue IKEA bags come in handy for all sorts of jobs from the laundry to wood carrying
It was stacked and not just dumped.
Girls and boys did a damn good job!
Hopefully it will get us through to the end of February
Then it's Spring...maybe
You know what they say about March ... in like a lamb, out like a lion
We've had a few weeks (seems like months) of heavy rain, a little sunshine, winds and freezing temperatures. The halcyon days of January are late. Temperatures are due to rise this weekend so maybe sunny days are on their way
Halcyon days ...
seven days when Aeolus, keeper of the winds, kept the air calm and storms at bay
