Day 12 of COVID-19 lockdown: Keeping busy

The weather is getting colder and some rain has been forecasted for the coming Easter weekend.

Today was the first morning that I lit the fireplace with 12 degrees outside.

Over the last weekend we had a delivery of Macrocarpa firewood and also got a lot of old pine out of our forest, all piled up ready to be split. Keeps us warm splitting it and will keep us warm over winter. 🙂
