This past Sunday I cleaned up and area of brush/fallen over trees next to my drive so I have another spot to push snow into. mainly little stuff but still had a 1/3 of a cord ish. I then swept my chimney and cleaned the ash out of my stove.

Today I made some Ricotta cookies with a glaze, they turned out pretty good but I'll change the glaze some when I make the next batch. Not all the cookies are pictured but we have 36.

We put in two loads today before the rains hit tonight and all day tomorrow, the first load is sugar and soft maple and the last load is yellow birch and more of the maples.

Tomorrow I'll be making some homemade chocolate covered eclairs.

Where is the snow?
Ha, are you kidding me! I live in northern Indiana! We won’t have a ton of snow
Yeah, the leaves just came down a couple weeks ago. ;)
We don't allow snow past the state line. If some does manage to slip in somehow, we rely on our friends, the sun and rain, to dispatch it within the next couple days. ==c

Every once in a while we have one stroll through my neck of the woods. I really would like to see one.

That's amazing. We really hope to see some black bears on our property.
Good luck, I think. I was up in the Antigo (wi) area 10yrs, never saw a bear. Saw lots of dogs cages on the back of pickups, and guys riding around waving radio antennas out the windows. Finally stopped one guy - what you guys doing - tracking dogs that are chasing bears. Never did see one. The area has lots of them, so they say. Down here they do the same with coyotes. Things are elusive, hide in the dangdest places, wouldn't think they are there till the dogs roust them out.

Yes all red oak.
Could be Black..if you look up where the limbs get smaller, you won't see as much flat bark as you do in the Reds. The leaves are a little different as well. But for all intents and purposes, it's the same wood.

I'll send some down your way. This one slept out behind my house most of 2016 right up until hunting season. Had mostly smaller ones this year but there were a couple decent size ones mixed in. Hundreds of pictures on the cameras. Ended up with a 276-pounder for meat in the freezer this season.

Wow! I've seen some black bears in preserves in NC and they didn't look as big as the pictured bear. I couldn't imagine having that much meat. My wife and I need to get over our soft hearts and get good at hunting.
