Let's Get Shabby Challenge #49 and 'Our Beautiful World' #9

 


Challenge #9 'Strong'

Our wood stack....
My dh cuts the big pieces and stacks it... and I cut it smaller... as I need it...
Yep, I know how to use an axe.  Does help that the wood is easy to split.

I have chopped wood before...little pieces. A big axe is just to unwieldy for me. I love that you and your husband work together to get this job done.

How awesome you know how to work the axe! I know how to work a machete, LOL since there is no need for fire wood in this part of the world. Awesome pile of wood it totally is perfect for our strong prompt! thanks so much for sharing it with us at our beautiful world!

Love your photo for this week's prompt. So funny that we have both gone with the wood chopping! I let my husband do the chopping, I just do the lugging them back to the house and stacking them.

i'm impressed~!
even the easy to split wood isn't that "easy". i was never able to do much at a time and now i'm not sure that i could do it at all.

a great end of summer shot and very appropriate to the "strong" prompt.
when it's time to start fires for the upcoming cool evenings you will feel nicely warm and satisfied.
