Getting in some wood.....and a homeowner tragedy...

Today my clan spent some quality time cutting some wood for the fireplace. At this time, we don't have a wood stove, but we do have a fireplace and can usually make it well into December before we have to start using the furnace. Having a fireplace necessitates wood.....lots and lots of wood! Fireplaces burn way more wood than a stove does because of the openness, but we still like it. Nothing like sitting at the table by a roaring fire working on a quilt or some embroidery!
I cut the logs up with my trusty Stihl chainsaw and The Man splits with the maul. Then together we toss the wood in the truck.
While The Man and I were busily getting the wood in, The Youngun was building herself a house.
This is the finished product. She is sitting on her hammock and her house is to the right. Isn't it beautiful!
Uh oh..........
Every homeowners nightmare has come to visit!
Naomi has discovered her home!!
Maybe if she goes inside Naomi will go away?

No such all the girls are devouring her house!
The saddened home owner retreated to her hammock to contemplate how best to goat proof her design for next time!
Hope you all are enjoying your weekend, wherever you are!
Till next time.........GOD BLESS FROM GOODWIFE FARM!

  1. We know about those wood piles here too. It does help on those expensive power bills.

    The hammock and house were beautiful.
    Great job!
    Naomi and the others thought so also!

    Have a great day.
