    The wood pictured is all set to go for the 2013/14 burning season, most of it (the two front racks) will be seasoned for two years, the rest 1.5.

    Now it is time for you to take a break and do some fishing in the brook with that little guy you told us about. The time is also here for making sure the weed eater and lawn mower are ready. I took care of mine last week. Almost time to weed wack already. Lawn should be one more week out. Hopefully. Nice work processing the wood ZAP.

    It all starts tonight, cleaning up the downed pine in the back, then the stacking with some splitting all weekend long. The boat batteries will be charged for the weekend so we can take it out.

    Our lawn won't need mowing until another two weeks. The boys will be fishing in the Brook with there father in the next couple of weeks so I won't be needed.

    I plan on working outside around the house more this summer, hauling pine needles out to the trails in the woods, more boat time this year compared to the last couple.

    This is three years ago on the St.Lawrence River, we plan on going down 2 or 3 times.

    The freezer is empty of Walleye.

    I started the last rack of shoulder season wood for 2014/15, with what I have cut and split in the woods this will be done by Wednesday. I made a trip up in for some bigtooth aspen I left up top, the second pic is a nice size ironwood.

    It's growing all over, certain spots need some thinning out. Because the animals use that tree for a food source I only take the topped off or damaged trees.
