Gamma, just think of what it is like to live every day in that cabin in the woods!

This is why it is important to be outside in the winter! Everyday. We all tend to spend more time inside when it is cold. But if you dress right and keep moving, it is a great time to be outside. Lifts the spirit. Brightens the mood. Very little warmth, but you just have to keep moving and create your own heat.The best time to work outside. NO BUGS. I love cutting, splitting, or stacking wood, shoveling okay aahh maybe not, walking with the wife, kids, and/or dogs (mutleys as I like to call them) etc, etc.
Hope things work out for you.
I find myself reflecting a lot.....
Edit i am a depressed type of person.
For me getting into snowmobiling was one of the best things ever to get through the winter . . . as you say . . . just getting outside does the mind and body good . . . plus I often feel sorry for the home-bound folks who never get to see some of the beautiful winter scenes that folks skiing, snow shoeing or sledding see.
Hoping things work out for you Jags . . . and that you don't burn down the forest in the mean time.
Outside - in and next to nature is where I am most comfortable. Outside and lighting things on fire is my therapy. Being next to water is my sanctity. And being around good friends in this environment with a good beer in my hand is the assurance that somehow - things will work out.
In this case . . . I'm sure a bunch of us were wishing we could be hanging out with you at the cabin, burning things up and downing a few cold ones. Hang in there.
I wish that many of you were too.
...setting a very tall stump on fire is usually the precursor to......The Fire Dance! At least in my village. I WILL be scannig youtubes later, to make sure it was done correctly (which I'm sure it was, you being Jags and all). It scary what some people will try to pass off as a traditional Fire Dance these days.
"The macarena holding a candle is no fire dance sir, none at all".
Hope things work out ok for you Jags and you get through this time...not sure what you are going through, but you do have friends here.
I know - this group of folks is the best.
fixed for you. spelling is my strawng sewt.
Bright sunshine today!! First time i saw the sun in 2 weeks. Too many cloudy and overcast days is bad for the morale.
Leaves are falling off the citrus from no sun for so long.
There's a pork chop in every bottle!
Cuz were fellow drinkers,woodburners and Bull $h#^ers
Jags. A relative and friend of mine, who has since passed away after a good long life, said this to me once when I was a very young man and going through what I thought at the time was a difficult time. "Keep your head up and keep a positive attitude. Then, things will work out in the end. They always do." I will never forget it.
To be honest i had to cut back on drinking cause i have 7 stomach ulcers now since a few months ago reflecting does not help them also.
Hang in there everyone. Unfortunately the winter solstice is almost two months away.
One of the many reasons I live in CO is the 300+ days of sunshine that we have here.
Love the look of the knotty pine Dennis. Nothing like that natural look of wood. Very classy. I didn't realize you would like wood in and around your house.
Things always seem a little better after blowing off some steam. If/When I am down and thinking things aren't going my way, I always think of the millions and millions of people that are worse off than me (usually I realize that I have it pretty good). Good luck Jags, keep your head up and your feet on the ground, tomorrow is another day!
Thanks all. Unfortunately there is no fix or solution to this.
On Oct. 20 the love of my life unexpectedly passed away. We had been together for 13 years.
The very same day my father was admitted to the hospital with terminal brain cancer.
Its gonna be a long road. Completely devastated.
Sorry to hear that jags.....
Praying for you we are here for you.
OMG Jags, that's terrible. I really dont know what to say.
Please take care in knowing you are in our thoughts & prayers at this time.
Jags, I am so sorry.....I wish there was something I could do or say to lessen the hurt......
You will be in my thoughts and prayers
Very sorry about your loss Jags.
