Weekend Update ~ Wood Splitting

(Jesse trying to nap in front of the wood stove)

We had a long weekend - baby shower, birthday party.  Today it's dentist appointments, and wood splitting.  Although I opted out of the birthday party (had a fever of 101.1), I should have rested the entire weekend.  Some things, such as wood splitting, have to be done regardless.

Hubby took the day off to split wood, as he knew I was not up to it.  With some luck, and through talking to others, we located free wood and just have to split it.  

Starting 5pm-ish today, we are to get about 3-5 inches of snow, then blowing and breezy.  So, getting the wood split before then is kind of important.

We are not sure what breed Jesse is. He was dumped in a box at a no-kill shelter, and my one daughter fell in love with him.
