The chimney is swept — the roofer did that job last week. A lot of wood is sawed. There's at least 100 gallons of heating oil in the fuel tank to run the boiler and radiators. We're ready for winter.
Walt saws the logs, which as delivered are one meter long. Each log (nearly 200 of them) needs to be cut into three pieces. That's a lot of sawing. I just watch. Or listen. As I cook lunch, usually. A chacun sa tâche.
We also ended up with a lot of petit bois — "little wood" — this year, for starting fires or just making a small fire to take the chill off when it's not freezing cold outside. You can see it all in the picture above.
