Keeping the home fires burning.

We love this in the winter.

But it takes a lot of this.......

....and a lot of this.

Bruce gets to do the big chunks that are too heavy for me to lift.

Some are really big......

.....and even give him a hard time.

While the dogs play.

Wouldn't you love to have a dog's life?

Bruce perseveres with the big guy. I learn a lesson about picking up wood off the ground while he is splitting, "THWACK!" a piece popped off and smacked me up along side the head!


Then we get this.....

....that buries the wood pile and splitter.

The temperature drops... we are really happy to have this to tide us over....

....until we have this again. Sigh.....

But on the upside, we are celebrating Murphy's 1st birthday today, January 7th!

This was baby Murphy at 3 weeks old.

This is our wild child today, she loves the snow and cold!

If Mollie knew then what she knows now......

....I don't think she would have been quite so welcoming!

Happy Birthday, Murphy!
