A Hammer and a Pile of Wood

Here is where I (re)started - the pile of wood left from tearing apart the roofing of the barn.  The long boards were put to good use - a co-worker of Hubby's that makes furniture with it.  The shorter boards remain in this somewhat of a huge pile.  I've worked on it a few days, but didn't bring much up to the house.  While Hubby is at work, and on good weather days. . .

 Nails got pulled.   And they are not easy to get out either.  Some are so mangled it takes great effort.

Added to the existing pile until we can cut them to fit the stove.  My wrist was sore, so I took a break.  

....putting a dent in it.

Okay, that looks like hard work! It looks like you have sun! Sun envy, here!
My husband is installing the third new window sash. He bought three new windows because it was cheaper than buying just the sashes. (Don’t ever buy Anderson, no customer service when you have problems.) Hopefully, this will stop the dripping moisture that starts every Winter.
I hope the rest of your weekend is more fun!

Debbie, it's wood that we can definitely use in wood stove, and so far it's worked great. It is hard work, but I try to get outside when the sun is out. I plan to get more vitamin D this winter. It's also less mess, and helps slowly clean up the piles we have.
