totalling the wood pile

Filed under: Uncategorized — sassinak @ 12:19 am

I totalled the wood pile today. So my sister has lots of wood for the next few months and I got to toss some of my mental crap at some wood. It was very satisfying. Also othercat took a picture of me wielding a sledgehammer and just for dzer here it is:

I’m actually contemplating sticking that one in my okcupid profile…

There are piles of great pictures from today. Othercat, FL and I went up to see la lovely sister of mine and they hung out and took pictures and I chopped the wood pile. Yes, the entire rest of the woodpile. Yes, in one day. [fyi yes, i’m speaking specifically to the people who know how much wood was left last week]. The wood on the left and near right of where i’m working is split already and then up to the farther right is the stuff left [and some has been stacked at this point]. Good me did the hardest crap the first time.

Here’s one where i’m irked cause the sledge didn’t hit the wedge properly and the wood i’m working on went off the ‘table’ and so I have to pick up that motherfucking heavy crap again:

These are my tools:


After I finished the wood pile and incidentally broke the auld axe handle trying to get a stubborn fork knot to split (hammering a stump that’s attached to an axe into another stump is an excellent way to break an old axe handle when the knot is extra stubborn) on the LAST FUCKING log of the day we all went for a drive to Eugenia Falls and then the Epping swamp. [aka the alligator crossing…]

I plan to post pictures of that as well but I think three 2MB pictures in one post is enough. Well okay, one more before bed:

Isn’t Eugenia Falls lovely?

Thanks to dzer for photo shrinking for me… y’all should thank him too, this post used to load 8mb of photos!

  10. I need to chop some wood, winter is supposed to be nasty and I’m not in the mood for 300.00 gas bills.

    Spent Sunday removing bamboo…why people plant that crap is beyond me but despite being removed down to the surface it continues on. Dug a bunch up then pulled a ton of wild grape vine down. Discovered then that my leather work gloves have a split in one of the joints, my middle finger has a gash between the 2nd and 3rd knuckles. How am I supposed to drive with a damaged turn signal? :D

    teresa: dude it’s totally fun… i get home from climbing and i’m already jonesing for more. Also… isn’t that guy delicious???
