It appears that a good hunk, if not all of my Saturday is accounted for. Six cords cut and split, ready for stacking in the woodshed. I love making wood and love wood heat even more-when I switch over to L.P. when traveling during the wood burning season, you can really tell the difference in the quality of the heat. I don't feel cheated out of photographing, as it is to rain till afternoon tomorrow, as it has all day today. Up to 30 MPH winds tomorrow will clear the trees of much of the remaining leaves. I want to get to Lake of the Clouds this weekend, as well as top of Wolf Mountain to photograph, as even with partial pastel color mixed with bare trees, it is like a fine watercolor. Speaking of watercolors, I invested in some paints, brushes, pencils, etc, and plan on teaching myelf some basics this winter, both with the help of youTube, in addition to what I remember from a friend that taught me some washes and brush techniques, some years ago. A bucket list item.
